Tointon rehearsals derailed by flu?

Kara Tointon has been suffering from flu and is worried it will damage her chances of waltzing away with the Strictly Come Dancing trophy, according to reports.

Saturday's hotly-anticipated final pits the former EastEnders actress, 27, against Matt Baker, who is the bookies' favourite, and Pamela Stephenson.

An insider told The Sun: "She is desperate to win and fears this will ruin her chances."

Kara has been lined up to perform four dances, but has been too ill to rehearse with Artem Chigvintsev, who recently said he was waiting for the BBC One show to finish so he can date his dance partner.

Eliminated celebrities such as Gavin Henson and Ann Widdecombe are said to be returning to the Strictly stage do a group dance on Saturday's show.
