STRICTLY star Helen Skelton collapsed on the dancefloor after a sweaty dance rehearsal with pro partner Gorka Márquez.
The TV presenter, 39, looked shattered after a gruelling training session ahead of her second performance on the BBC One dance competition.
Sharing a clip from the rehearsal studio, a sweat soaked Gorka said: “And that’s a wrap.”
Facing the camera to a collapsed Helen, he said: “Are you alright?”
Sprawled out on the floor, Helen gave an unconvincing thumbs up and replied: “Good.”
Professional dancer Gorka joked: “You’re going to crawl to your bed,” to which Helen added: “To bed, I haven’t seen one in a while.”
The contestants have been pushing themselves to their limit.
Earlier this week, Helen revealed her painfully sore feet with blood on the heels.
She wrote: “And the aim of the game is to be sexy… not with these trotters #nopainnogain,” followed by laughing emojis.
Despite her injury, the Strictly star seemed in good spirits as she posed for a selfie with dance partner Gorka Marquez as they trained.

Helen beamed as Gorka stood smiling away in the background, and Helen wrote: “Feet on fire and head exploding but loving every second of this journey…
“Somehow Gorka finding time to prank everyone – thank god there’s room to laugh. It’s been a big old week of training so far and still a lot to do… here’s to the feet and hips doing what the boss says.”
Helen’s foot snap comes after the star revealed she broke down in tears and tried to escape ahead of her Strictly debut last Saturday.
Speaking on her Radio 5 show today, Helen reflected: “I had a little cry. I’m normally cool, calm and collected
“I got on the dance floor and they said, ‘When the audience come in…’ and I went, ‘Oh crikey, yeah, there’s people. I was like, ‘There’s a fire door, there, I can get out of it,’ and I did.
“And Gorka found me and said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘Just having a minute.’ I literally ran. It was like when I did Celeb SAS, I tried to escape that.”
The mum-of-three also admitted that she was still getting used to life on the show because of the lack of personal space she gets.
She explained: “I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but it’s very weird. Personal space? You wave goodbye to that. Boundaries are non-existent.
“You walk in and they go, ‘Do you want a fake tan?’ Before you know it you’re naked with a load of people spraying you.”
Helen and Gorka delivered an elegant American Smooth for their first dance.
