Strictly sensation Nancy Xu sparked concern from fans during Saturday’s live show after she appeared to suffer a nasty injury.

The professional dancer, 32, was partnered with Les Dennis, 69, and was seen cleaning off blood from her ear while the duo was being interviewed by Claudia Winkleman after their debut performance.

The choreographer was captured mopping up the injury while having a chat with the presenter, as she was handed a tissue.

During a moment when the camera was not focused on her, Nancy cleaned up as it appeared the blood run down her chin and neck.

The dancer did not comment on the injury as she listened to the judge’s feedback, with herself and Les finishing at the bottom of the leaderboard with 16 points.

Ouch! Strictly sensation Nancy Xu was left mobbing up blood live on the show after she suffered an injury mid-dance during week one's episode on Saturday

Elsewhere during the sensational episode, Nigel Marman emerged as an early favourite to win as he topped the leaderboard during the first live show.

The actor, 50, was proclaimed by judge Shirley Ballas as ‘the one to beat’ after he performed an outstanding pasodoble with dance partner Katya Jones.

The Casualty star danced to Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit and received universal praise from all four judges and received a score of 32 out of 40.

‘That was the dance of the night,’ proclaimed Craig Revel Horwood while Motsi Mabuse added: ‘This at the end of the night was spectacular, amazing.’

Anton Du Beke also praised the actor and reminded the audience it’s not easy for the star who has to close the show.
