Simon Rimmer has said his leg is “killing” him after he fell on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Sunday Brunch star slipped over during the dance-off on Sunday night’s results show but managed to escape elimination, with Brian Conley getting the chop.

He later posted a message on Twitter saying he was feeling a bit sore after the mishap.

“Thank you for all the lovely messages for @karen_hauer and me @bbcstrictly – still in it!” he wrote.

“My leg is killing me after my slip in dance off.”

Rimmer also shared a picture of his leg covered in blue strapping.

“Quad strapping post @bbcstrictly fall – OW!!!” he said.

He said on Instagram that it was “ice and compression time”.
