Strictly Come Dancing star Kelvin Fletcher has revealed the horrifying bruises on his legs earned from his brutal dance training.
The Emmerdale star is the hot favourite to win the BBC One contest, but it seems it hasn't come without its sacrifices.
Kelvin, who played Andy Sugden on the soap for 20 years, posed up in his boxer shorts to show the huge purple bruises all over his legs.
Sharing is on Instagram , he said: "Rugby? No. Paintball? No. Dancing? Yes #didimentionimbruised? #soft #getoveritkelvin #strictly"
Confused pal Ryan Thomas asked: "Hows that happened"
While his professional partner Oti Mabuse told him: "Don’t be a queen about it… get dressed and let’s go dance"
Some found the photo a little distracting though.
One said: "Ok hands up who zoomed in?…"
And another cheekily commented: "Great legs and pouch though"
Kelvin, 35, has been the hot favourite to win the contest ever since he joined as Jamie Laing's replacement.
Made In Chelsea star Jamie was forced to pull out of the contest after being injured during the filming of the launch show.
Last week, Kelvin spoke about how much performing at Blackpool's iconic Tower meant to him.
He said: "It’s made the hairs go up on my neck just thinking about it.
"Before the dawn of budget airlines, you couldn’t think of going to Spain, it was just too expensive. We would go to Blackpool for our holidays.
"So the Blackpool Tower, Winter Gardens, that’s all very much part of my childhood. I just remember it as an amazing resort, absolutely buzzing.
"I’ve been to the ballroom on a Friday afternoon, there might have been a few couples getting up and doing a little dance, you’d sit there, have your cup of tea, and random people would just get up. I just remember thinking how stunning it was inside.
"I think it will be really weird to walk out there in a completely different stage of my life, as an adult. It feels really special for me because Blackpool was a huge part of my childhood."
