A pox on both your houses

Coronation Street's Tina O'Brien has been forced to pull out of this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing live show after contracting chickenpox. Producers now fear that the 'star' (and we use the term lightly), may have infected other contestants.

Tina told The Daily Mail, 'I am devastated. I was so looking forward to this week's show. Jared and I have spent so much time and effort on a really fantastic routine and I just couldn't wait to perform it on Saturday. Hopefully I will bounce back quickly and be on top dancing form soon, ready to come back straight into the next routine. I will be watching them all this weekend.'

Or maybe this is a cunning plan to wipe out the opposition. Good work, O'Brien...
