    Strictly Come Dancing star Nancy Xu has taken to social media for the first time since fans were left concerned after spotting blood on her neck during the first live show of the 2023 series.

    The professional dancer was seen pressing tissue on her neck after she finished her routine with celebrity dancer Les Dennis on Saturday (September 23). After finishing their performance, they headed up the staircase to chat to host Claudia Winkleman and blood could be seen oozing from her skin.

    However, Nancy continued on like a true professional and listened on as judges Shirley Balass, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke offered their feedback on her dance with TV legend Les.

    Putting on a brave face on Sunday (September 24) morning, Nancy returned to social media with a hopeful comment. Sharing a picture of her and Les on the dancefloor, she penned: "That's week one done. Hope we did bring a bit of smile on your face."

    Fans immediately began to share the best wishes and ask Nancy about her injury. One social media user asked: "What happened to your neck, hope you are ok." Someone else typed: "Hope your neck is okay after it was bleeding," While many others shared positive messages to the dancing duo claiming they hoped to see them stick around in the competition despite some of the judges critiques.

    Although many had high hopes for Les due to his performance background, it was clear he let the nerves get the better of him as he delivered a shaky performance. This was later reflected in the judges' scores.

    When critiquing the star, judge Craig Revel Horwood said he "gave it a good go." Meanwhile, head judge Shirley Ballas said he should be proud of himself. However, the scores didn't reflect Les' complimentary comments from the judges. Les received a total score of 16.

    Seeing his wholesome display fans headed straight to the X to support the former Family Fortunes star. One viewer said: "Oh, I’m absolutely here for Les Dennis! so much fun."

    Another said: "Oh Les! He’s not a natural ballroom dancer but seems to be a throughly lovely guy. Highly recommend his appearance on @KathyBurke’s excellent podcast, Where There’s A Will There’s A Wake."

    While another fan commented on the fact that judge Craig gave Les a two in his scores. The viewer wrote: "Well done Les Dennis!! Craig cruel with that 2!!"
