He was rushed to hospital and ruled out of last night’slive Halloween show– and possiblythe rest of the series.

Last night a crew member who witnessed the fall said: “It was horrific to see close up.

“It was immediately clear that something very serious had happened.

“The crew rushed to get him medical help. Everyone has their fingers crossed but it looks very bad for Will.”

The star has arthritis in all his limbs, causing weakness and balance problems, after being born with the condition arthrogryposis.

His injury will prompt concerns atthe BBCover their care for contestants on the show.

possibility of a celebrity dropping out will also throw it into disarray.

The source went on: “Will doesn’t want to cause any trouble.

“He is just praying for a miracle, and in the meantime wishes all his Strictly pals the very best of luck. Poor Will is absolutely heartbroken.

“He had really been coming into his own of late, and has been having a ball backstage with everyone.

“Of course he is also terrified he’s done lasting damage to his knee, which could have all sorts of repercussions.”

Sun Doctor’s Verdict

Carol Cooper says …

WILL looks unlikely to continue – and that’s bound to be a huge blow.

He was born with arthrogryposis which causes multiple curved joints.

He might not have torn a meniscus had his knees worked normally.

A meniscus tear is a common injury in sport.

The medial meniscus is the shock absorber of the knees and prone to damage.

Small tears may heal but bigger ones usually need surgery.

Will, who picked up 32 points for his emotional contemporary dance last weekend, landed on the leg he straps up playing table tennis.

Insiders claimed hisAmerican partner Janettehad earlier picked up a minor injury – and looked on as he practiced with another pro.

She can heard screaming “no, no, no” from behind the camera as he fell.

Will was given an MRI scan and is feared to have badly torn his meniscus ligament, which can take up to six months to heal.

The2016 Olympic gold medallistis now anxiously awaiting the results of the scan tomorrow.

He was given a bye last night and viewers were told he had hurt his knee in training.

Will explained: “I jumped off a table and as I landed I landed with straightened legs. I thought I broke my leg because I never felt anything like it before. ”

He added: “To hear the words I absolutely can’t dance was just really gutting for me. But I need to recover now and come back even stronger next week. ”

Battler Will not only fought arthrogryposis as a child but was also diagnosed with blood cancer.

His brilliant dance last week had judgeMotsi Mabusein tears and Will told viewers it was one of the “best, most memorable nights of my life”.

Will, awarded an MBE in 2017, recently said: “I don’t have any ankles, so I’m having to use my knees and soften them, to try to create the effect.

“It’s so hard, but I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.”

Will dated actress and modelFiona Yorkfor three years and had a daughter with her, but the pair are now reported to have split.

He could be the first celeb in 17 years to be ruled out by injury after the series started.

It could also throw it into disarray, as each show is planned around a specific number of timed dances.

Any drop-out would also mean an eviction may have to be cancelled in order to leave four celebrities in the final.

Last night a BBC insider said: “Will is a sportsman and extremely capable physically.

He has never sought special treatment, and week-in, week-out has been given routines which are challenging, but well within his capabilities.

“The incident on Friday was a freak accident which could have happened to anyone.”
