Strictly & # 39; s Anneka Rice jokes that she became a helicopter at the last minute in the launch show after fans saw her disappear and then & # 39; magically reappear & # 39; during group dance after an injury
Anneka Rice has tackled the fact that she appeared to disappear during the launch of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night and then resurfaced in the group dance.
Viewers noticed that they were nowhere to be seen during the dance – in which all the celebrities and the professional dancers could be seen – to suddenly manifest themselves between Saffron Barker and Anton Du Beke when the camera images changed.
A fan tweeted Anneka, 60, posted: & # 39; I've watched @bbcstrictly's launch show 4 times and can't see you in the group dance with @TheAntonDuBeke until the end. Do you have helicopter inside? & # 39;

To which the blonde broadcaster answered: & # 39; Yes! Helicopter at the end. I was not allowed to dance because of my shoulder injury, but fortunately to report that I was declared fit for training with Kevin on Monday! & # 39;
Kevin [Clifton] was announced this year at the show as Anneka & # 39; s partner, which shocked many, given that the Treasure Hunt star is bigger than him.
But Anneka had previously expressed concerns that she would not be able to participate in the ballroom show at all, after having just had a nasty fall, just six weeks before the rehearsals began.
The daring action women told MailOnline that she had undergone steroid injection treatment to help her inflamed shoulder.
Ta-dah! Viewers noticed that they were nowhere to be seen during the dance – in which all the celebrities and the professional dancers could be seen – only to suddenly manifest themselves
Anneka gave the parachutes in exchange for the pas du bourré and admitted that she had a difficult start to the race.
& # 39; About six weeks ago I fell down a pretty slippery slope in my neighbor's garden, it was after I signed up and was ready to go, but in the middle of my good fitness training, so the last six weeks I really had to let it rest, & she said.
& # 39; It has a small tear and it is inflamed, but it is nothing so bad that I cannot continue, it will be fine, it is just swollen, & # 39; she added, explaining that she is undergoing treatment.

& # 39; I have had steroid injections and hopefully it will be okay. Typical timing … It's the law of the sod! May I just say that this is the definition. & # 39;
The star, who is the oldest of this year's most famous stars at the age of 60, admitted that her injuries have only increased since the group rehearsals started last month.
She explained that she had recently gone for a massage and the therapist was shocked by her bruises.
& # 39; I'm covered with bruises, and the lady said: & # 39; how are you? & # 39; I was literally covered, and that was literally from Anton who was lying around like a bloody rag doll! & # 39;

Anneka previously recognized the & # 39; empty nest & # 39; syndrome and encouraged her to be more courageous than ever before. She eventually accepted the offer of producers to participate after years of decline.
& # 39; I feel a great release of mother duties. It has made me a little reckless this year & # 39 ;, she explained.
& # 39; [The thought of the costumes] scares me, I am not at all interested in frilly or flounces of clothing! & # 39;
Strictly Come Dancing starts at BBC One on Saturday at 7:10 PM.
