We’ve Got An Update About Anastacia’s Strictly Come Dancing Injury

The US singer WILL be dancing in this weekend's show, her team have confirmed on Instagram...

After Anastacia’s tough weekend on Strictly Come Dancing,  we’ve been given an update about the US singer.

On Sunday, we saw the 48-year-old star opt out of the dance-off after landing in the bottom two along with fellow contestant Melvin Odoom.

At the time, Anastacia cited her injury from earlier in the week (her double mastectomy scar tore) as the reason she felt unable to perform.

Anastacia reportedly ‘broke down’ backstage shortly after this scene…

But the decision by Strictly judges to boot off Melvin instead – even though Anastacia didn’t compete in the dance-off – lead to a bit of controversy.

However, there’s been a happy update from the I’m All Out Of Love hitmaker’s camp, as they’ve told fans that she WILL be performing on this weekend’s show.

‘Anastacia visited the clinic of a specialist in breast reconstruction surgery’, a note on her Instagram page read.

‘The doctor again confirmed that there was a tear in the scar tissue, which although painful is not permanent.

‘She was given the all-clear to dance this weekend with the caveat that the routine is carefully choreographed and she has been given the appropriate medication.’


Anastacia said she was worried to do the dance-off after her injury…

Anastacia’s rep added that a specialist will be ‘monitoring her condition regularly and she will revisit them on Monday.’

As expected, fans of the singer were overjoyed to hear that she would be continuing with the competition, and left tonnes of messages of support on her page.

‘Go Anastacia! You’re so beautiful and strong! Take care!’, wrote one. ‘You carry on so proud of you xx’, praised another.

The singer has battled and beaten breast cancer twice in the past, and has publicly announced that her fee from Strictly will be given to a breast cancer charity.

We can’t wait to see this hot lady dance again!
