Katie McGlynn, 28, has taken to her Instagram stories to inform fans she has suffered an injury ahead of her comeback to Strictly at the weekend, alongside dance partner Gorka Marquez. The Coronation Street actress was eliminated second in the dance competition, but is set to join her co-stars for one last group dance to celebrate the series in the grand finale.

Katie was replying to a fan in a Q&A session when she made the revelation.

In a short clip she recorded herself, the star confirmed she will be dancing this weekend, but that she is worried about her injured knee halting her progress.

She said: “I am and it’s very exciting.

“Although I may have injured my knee, so I will be a little bit nervous about that.

“But it’s all good. I am so excited to have one final dance with everybody.

“It’s going to be so much fun.”

Katie played Beth Tinker’s (played by Lisa George) niece Sinead in Coronation Street for six years.

Sinead was initially in a long-term relationship with Chesney Brown (Sam Aston).

However, she later started dating Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) who she went on to marry.

The couple shared baby Bertie together.

But during the pregnancy, the couple were struck with some tragic news.

Sinead was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

She later died in October 2019 leaving Corrie fans in tears.

Katie said wanted to raise awareness for cancer with how Sinead’s story ended.

She told OK! Magazine: “I said we should finish with the saddest ending because life’s not a fairy tale.

“I’ve been affected by people in my family who had cancer and I wanted to showcase that.

“I think a soap should reflect real life, I’m saddened that I’m leaving, but I want to create awareness.”

During an interview on This Morning, the actress confessed she was in tears on set as she filmed her last episode.

She said: “It’s heartbreaking, but it’s real life.

“When we were doing scenes that day, I thought that I can’t imagine this happening to me.”
