Chris Ramsey has said his “body is in bits” after his cartwheels on the Strictly dancefloor.

The comedian performed a Charleston with his professional partner Karen Hauer on Saturday night’s instalment of the BBC show, and said he was left with some injures.

On Sunday, he shared a picture on Instagram showing strapping around his arms and shoulders.

Thanks so much for all of your lush comments and support last night. I’ve worked flat out this week and my body is in bits! Pulled my tricep, shoulder and glutes (arse muscles for the scientists among us). . I’m all strapped up like a real dancer! I haven’t done a cartwheel since junior school and I had to do about 200 this week. Kids don’t get enough credit for just being able to knock them off out of nowhere... they are a nightmare when you’re a 33 year old lazy comedian! And the cartwheel lift is how I got my injuries. . Hopefully last night’s performance was the final cartwheels of my dancing career, and I can move onto something else if I’m still in the show next week... tune into the results show tonight to find out. Either way... I had a blast. What a night! Big love to @karenhauer for not farting while I had her legs round my head too. You da real MVP 👍🏻
