The Hairspray star and former talk show host is competing on the U.S. series alongside David Arquette, Cher’s son Chaz Bono and George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.
She has now become the first celebrity to be injured during the new season after hurting her shin while practising with dance partner Derek Hough.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, alongside an image of her bruised leg, she writes, “Look, my first injury… Don’t ask how it happened… Not sure how my bruise turned into a medic showing up? I’m fine!!”
