Tina O'Brien returns to Strictly

Tina O'Brien is returning to the Strictly dancefloor

Tina O'Brien is back in rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing after doctors gave her health the all-clear.

The actress was forced to miss last week's live show after she developed chickenpox.

She had been told she could miss one programme but if it was any more than that, bosses said she would have to leave the series.

A show spokeswoman said the former Coronation Street star was "fighting fit". She was cleared by a doctor on Tuesday and has resumed training with dance partner Jared Murillo.

They are working on a Charleston routine for the live edition of the BBC One show this weekend.

Tina said: "It is good to be back dancing, and I really want to catch up this week. I am a little tired, but I am so looking forward to Saturday when I will Charleston back to Strictly."

Magician Paul Daniels was the latest contestant to waltz off the ballroom dance show last weekend.

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
