Karen Hauer, who competed in Strictly Come Dancing this year, recently injured herself during rehearsals. The Venezuelan-American dancer admitted that she’d already “had a cry” when she posted an update about her MRI results on Instagram.
Karen, 39, is a professional Latin dance specialist and World Mambo Champion.
The star recently took part in Strictly Come Dancing this year alongside Sense and Sensibility actor Greg Wise, who is married to his former co-star Emma Thompson.
Taking to social media, she shared a health update with her 282,000 followers.
“Hello, hello, hello, so I got my MRI results back,” Karen began.
“Not the best news, not the worst news,” she confirmed.
“But I have to go see a specialist because apparently there’s a little cartilage flap underneath my kneecap, or something like that, that’s causing the pain.
“So I have my little brace on and I’m going to go see the specialist in about an hour or so and see what they say.
The dancer, who joined Strictly Come Dancing 2012, went on to explain that the whole ordeal came as “a shock”.
“I guess it’s a bit of a shock in a way because I’ve never had anything like this in my whole career,” she said.
“But you know there’s always a first time and I just feel a bit… I feel sad, you know? Had my cry already.”
“But I have amazing people around me, amazing physios around me.
“There are lots of good people that are advising me and treating me already, which is good, and I have the support of Jordan, my boyfriend.”

Karen is currently dating Jordan Jones Williams, who is a fitness professional from Australia.
Before that, she was in a relationship with opera singer David Webb for two years until their split in September 2020.
The star has also been married twice: first to former dance partner Matthew Hauer and then to fellow Strictly professional Kevin Clifton between 2015 and 2018.
Taking on a more positive note in her Instagram video, Karen went on to say: “I am motivated to get healthy, I think that’s what’s important.”
“This happens to a lot of dancers out there and, you know, it’s a little set back but at the same time it’s a little bit of time for you to kind of assess – reassess – and see where you’re at, and prioritise.
“Because if I don’t get it fixed now and I just push through it and try to be brave, then, if anything, it’s just going to get worse.
“But I’m in good hands and thank you for all your lovely messages. Sending lots of love, hope you guys are doing well today and I’ll keep you guys posted,” she concluded.
This year, Karen only made it to week four of Strictly Come Dancing with her celebrity partner Greg, whose spirited Samba to the Macarena was not enough to save them from the dreaded dance-off.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7:05pm on BBC One.
