Janette, who is married to fellow show pro Aljaž Škorjanec, posted a clip of the gruesome injury on her Instagram, squealing: "Will, you are bleeding! You are bleeding through your socks!”

The squeamish scenes saw blood oozing from the tips of his toes, after a nail had been rubbing against the skin.

Despite the wounds the table tennis player appeared undeterred.

Smiling through the pain, the 31-year-old replied: "I'm a real dancer now!"

Strictly star Janette introduced the injury clip with the words: "I know I should be more of a supportive partner but Will just said his feet hurt and I said, 'Do you want to take your shoes off for five minutes?'

"And this is what it's like."

Clearly impressed with Will's dedication, prior to the opening show of the series, she posted the injury clip in full to her page and accompanied with the caption: "Wow!! What a hard worker!

"He only noticed when I suggested he could give his feet a break from his shoes!

"I cannot say enough how impressive this mans attitude is. Feeling so inspired by him everyday!

"What a champ! Love ya @willbayleytt & thank you for working so hard! We’ve got this champ!"

Will revealed his new role on TalkRadio and the table tennis champion, who suffers with arthrogryposis which affects all four of his limbs, told how he wants to inspire fellow sufferers while on the dancefloor.

Arthrogryposis is the term for conditions that cause multiple curved joints in areas of the body at birth.

It usually results in stiff joints and muscle weakness, and it is not seen as a genetic condition.

The official start date for the live Strictly Come Dancing shows is Saturday, September 21, with the final coming on Saturday, December 14.

However, this year's Strictly returned with an official launch show on September 7, 2019 at 7.10pm where fans found out which professionals and celebrities were paired up together.
