The 'Love Island' star was rehearsing with Alex Murphy on Friday (09.02.18) when the skater hurt her leg, and she's said to only have a 50/50 chance of being fit enough to perform on the show tonight (11.02.18).

A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "This is a nightmare for Kem and Alex. They'd worked really hard on their routine for this week's show but now everything is hanging in the balance. It's 50/50 whether she'll be able to perform."

Producers reportedly have a "reserve skater" lined up to work with Kem, but they are also "considering fast-tracking the pair to next week's show" and letting them bypass tonight's performance completely, but they will not make a definite decision until just a few hours before the programme airs live on ITV.

News of Alex's injury comes just a few days after it was reported a number of stars on the show had been hit by a virus.

Kem, Donna Air and Lemar were all said to have been facing a "race against time" to be fit enough for this weekend.

A source said earlier this week: "It's a race against time to get fit again ahead of this weekend's show.

"Not a day goes by when there isn't someone else being laid low. It has never happened this bad on the show, especially as it happened at the start of the show too."

And it's not just bosses who are concerned as professional skater Matt Evers - who was booted out of the competition along with his partner Candice Brown last month - is worried that he'll come down with the bug and it'll put him out of the group routines.

Writing in his Best magazine column, Matt said: "We are over halfway through and the relentless pace takes its toll. Donna Air said she feels like her body needs a week in bed. It's what we're all feeling."
