OUCH! Looks like Strictly is taking its toll on Laura
The presenter revealed to her Twitter fans on Wednesday that she’s been left covered in bruises from her gruelling rehearsals with dance partner Giovanni Pernice – and posted photos which proves they’re BRUTAL.
Poor Laura, 31, has ended up with several scary-looking wounds on her arms and is shocked by just how many she’s got.
‘I’ve always known I bruise like a peach… But this is ridiculous,’ the Irish star wrote alongside her graphic pictures.
The snaps sparked a shocked reaction from Laura’s fans, with one simply commenting: ‘Yikes!!’
Another added: ‘ouch hope your ok xx’
Meanwhile Strictly pro Gorka Marquez couldn’t resist making a joke at Giovanni’s expense and posted: ‘thats normal when u dance with @pernicegiovann1’
Italian Gio, 25, has since answered back and blamed the bruising on Laura’s fair complexion.
‘Irish white skin guys!!! It’s not my fault,’ he Tweeted. ‘#justsaying’
Poor Laura! The presenter had made it clear just before posting the photos that she was in pain, having told her fans: ‘Everything hurts’
It certainly looks like Team Lovanni are working hard on their routine for this weekend’s Movie Week show.
The pair will be performing a Salsa to Rhythm Of The Night from Moulin Rouge and Laura recently revealed that the costume and make-up department are ‘going all out’ for it – which is a good job given that they’re going to have to cover those bruises up!
Unfortunately the markings aren’t the only physical ailment Laura has faced this week – she’s also ended up with a badly-timed blemish on her face.
Earlier this week she Tweeted: ‘Dear Mr Spot on my forehead… Feck off. I don’t like you, you obviously don’t like me. So why don’t we just part ways. Good day sir!’
