Danica McKellar's dancing future might be in jeopardy as the Dancing With The Stars contestant has revealed that she's actually busted a rib during a rehearsal.
The actress, who starred on The Wonder Years, revealed that she had broken the rib while she was working on a new routine by her partner Val Chmerkovskiy last week.

Danica, 39, tweeted on Friday (April 25): "So…I broke a rib in yesterday's #DWTS rehearsal," and added: "Trying my best to pull thru and could use your prayers!! #wanttokeepdancing."
But while the star was hoping to get on with the dance rehearsals, it was proving difficult. "Had rehearsal today..it's tough dancing with a broken rib," she wrote. "@iamvalc choreographed an amazing routine-fingers crossed I can pull it off!"
Danica and 28-year-old Val have been working hard at the Los Angeles dance studios and have been proving the favourites to win the show after consistently topping the leader board during this season.
The couple managed to get 39 out of 40 for their Beauty and the Beast Disney routine and last week were given 36.
A source has told Us Weekly that the injury usually takes six weeks to heal, but Danica needs to be able to pull this together.
"She is resting and trying to relax," the insider said. "Normally takes six weeks to recover."
While Val has tweeted that it has been very difficult for the dancing partners. "Very very tough week #very," he tweeted.
