The dancing granny who learnt to salsa after the death of her husband says she will perform in Britain's Got Talent after all.

It is after Paddy Jones pulled out on Thursday, after cracking a rib rehearsing in Spain.

She had flown into the UK to watch the show but woke up feeling better.

A consultation with a doctor in London showed the injury was less serious than had previously been feared.

Now she is expected to perform a less strenuous routine tonight, along with partner Nico, before resting up and hoping she has done enough to make it through to the final.

Paddy told reporters: “I hurt my rib almost two weeks ago whilst rehearsing my routine with Nico. After resting, since then over the last few days I have been feeling much better and today I spoke to Britain’s Got Talent and told them that I felt I would be fit enough to dance.

"After seeing a top doctor in London this afternoon I have been given the all clear to perform on tomorrow night’s show and this is something I very much want to do.“

A spokesperson for Britain’s Got Talent said: “We can confirm that after Paddy spoke to us about feeling fit enough to perform, and following further medical advice and tests from a top London specialist, who has advised that she is able to dance, she will be performing. 

"Alongside her dance partner Nico she will be performing a modified version of the routine they had originally planned.“
