Strictly Come Dancing pro Brendan Cole is to make yet another return this weekend, to replace Anita Dobson's crocked partner.

Brendan was knocked out of the competition when Lulu was voted out of the show, but made a comeback to dance with Holly Valance when Artem Chigvintsev was injured.

Now he is due for yet another appearance after Robin Windsor suffered a foot problem. Robin is thought to have an infection.

The disappointed dancer told spin-off show It Takes Two that his foot began to hurt on Friday and he thought it was just a knock, but he managed to get through Saturday night's Wembley show on adrenaline.

However later that night his foot had swollen up and he has now been prescribed antibiotics and advised by medics not to dance. Robin said he was "gutted", but that "knight in shining armour" Brendan would be stepping in so Anita can keep dancing.

Anita and Robin managed to avoid finishing in the bottom two at the weekend, which had been their fate the previous week.
