Strictly star Greg Wise slapped down as 'dramatic' by pro dancer as he reveals rehearsal injury

STRICTLY star Greg Wise was tonight slapped down as "dramatic" by his professional dance partner on live TV.

The actor revealed he'd had an injury in rehearsal – but was quickly put in his place by Karen Hauer.

He'd been joking around on The One Show with host Alex Jones after she asked if his late sister would have been impressed by his group dance on Saturday night.

"Oh no", said Greg – who is married to actress Emma Thompson.

"But Saturday's is woah, love it!"

Alex said: "You're building it up now!", before Greg joked: "Oh it's alright…"

He then went on to tell BBC viewers about sustaining an injury as he prepared for his debut dance.

"I popped my calf this morning," said Greg before he was shut down by Karen.

She said: "Oh, dramatic."

Greg laughed, admitting: "I am so dramatic."

The 55-year-old actor was devastated by the death of his sister Clare from cancer in 2016.

He revealed she was a Strictly superfan before her death and even had a glitterball coffin.

Greg – who had been working 24/7 as her carer – hopes to perform Dancing Queen as a tribute.

"I don't want to let anyone down," he said tonight.

Greg was the 10th celebrity to be unveiled in this year's line-up, which also includes Dan Walker, Katie McGlynn and Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty.

Greg played Lord Louis Mountbatten in Netflix hit The Crown, and has also starred in Sense & Sensibility, Effie Gray, and Walking On Sunshine.
