Kara treated in hospital after Strictly win

Strictly Come Dancing 2010 champion Kara Tointon received hospital treatment for a wrist injury shortly after her triumph on Saturday night.

The former EastEnders star, who beat fellow finalists Matt Baker and Pamela Stephenson to take the Glitterball trophy, injured her wrist during training for the final.

And she went on to admit that her acrobatic show dance was “the most painful thing I’ve ever done”.

She was taken to hospital after Saturday’s show, where doctors revealed that she had torn ligaments in her lower arm.

The 27-year-old is now recovering at home with her arm in a sling.

And following much speculation, Kara hinted at a possible romance between her and dance partner Artem Chigvintsev – saying that she would be having dinner with him at her parents’ home in North London.

I think we are going to literally not go anywhere today. It’ll be quite nice,” she said. “He’s going to cook for me in my mum and dad’s kitchen. They’ve met him and they all get on so well.”

However she remained tight-lipped on whether they were actually now an item. “Fingers crossed,” she said. “We’ll see what happens.”
