Love Island Star Danny Williams Breaks Ankle During TikTok Dance
Danny, 21, had donned a pair of sky-high red heels to have a stab at a TikTok dance alongside his co-stars Chris Taylor and Jordan Hames.
While Chris and Jordan ended the challenge upright, Danny toppled over on his ankle and fell onto the floor.
An update on Chris' Instagram Stories later that day said Danny had actually broken his ankle during the incident, and that he was 'sleeping off' the pain.
Sharing the clip of the dance, Chris wrote: "HATS OFF GIRLS... this is A LOT harder than we thought. Ask @itsdannywilliams left ankle @jxrdanhames.
He added: "Any one need x3 pairs of size 11 heels? Worn once, barely damaged. Comes with three toes and half of Danny's ankle. DM me cos I never want to see them again. Getting PTSD.
"Actually starting to wonder if these boys will ever say no to my ridiculous suggestions. Mad respect though."
Danny commented on the post: "First Tik Tok with you lot and it cost me my ankle ffs. Is this what's its gonna be like living with yous?
"Also I'm awfully suspicious as to how Jordan got that confident strutting in heels."

Their fellow Love Island star Maura Higgins also said: "Absolutely BRILLIANT girlies."
In the clip, Chris and Jordan burst out laughing as their friend fell, clearly not realising how serious the injury was.
Danny shared it on his own page, writing: "Man down ref, I think I've done me metatarsal."
He added: "Genuinely intersted to know if there's any decent physiotherapists around? Think I'm out for the season."
When Chris later revealed that they were actually dealing with a broken ankle, Danny posted the video of him asleep and said he'd been given morphine for the pain.
"The morphine must've knocked me clean out," he said.
"Don't even remember falling asleep."
Impressive to see that the lads are risking their necks to give everyone their Love Island fix, given that the show has been postponed until next summer.
Confirming the news last month, a spokesperson for ITV told LADbible: "Love Island UK will return bigger and better than ever with an extended run in summer 2021."
While Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV, explained in a statement: "We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer, but logistically it's just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.
"In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that's now out of the question.
"We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021. In the meantime Love Island fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox."
