Heather Mills' has left her dancing partner "black and blue"
- Macca's estranged wife keeps stepping on her partner's toes with her artificial leg

Troubles for Heather Mills in Dancing With The Stars. Macca s estranged wife has left her dancing partner black and blueThe former model has revealed the waltz rehearsals on the hit US TV show were a painful experience for her professional partner Jonathan Roberts.

She confessed in her online diary: "At the beginning of the week, I was rubbish at the waltz. Jonathan was in a quandary and wanted to change the beginning of the routine because every time I stepped backward, I would scrape his Achilles tendon with the heel of my shoe. But then when I stepped forward, I'd make his toes black and blue, not realising my artificial leg was standing on his foot whilst I inquired why he was screwing his face up."

Heather - who lost her left leg below the knee in a police motorbike accident in 1993 - also revealed she looked more like a "waddling duck" than a "graceful swan" during her preparations.

She added: "Jonathan said that he wanted me to be as graceful as a swan. Yet he kept saying I was impersonating a waddling duck. He said that I kept sticking my butt out, which I was actually pleased about, as I always thought I didn't have much of a butt."

Despite a rocky week, Heather and her partner impressed the judges with their waltz on Monday (09.04.07) and remain in the competition with seven other couples.
