Strictly’s Shirley Ballas puts herself on drip after ill judge’s death threats

Strictly Come Dancing's Shirley Ballas has put herself on a drip due to being struck by an illness this week.

The 59-year-old has been in the press as she allegedly received death threats after the results show on Sunday.

Viewers were furious after Radio One DJ Dev Griffin and his partner Dianne Buswell were dumped from the competition.

The ballroom dancing extraordinaire decided to get rid of Dev alongside fellow judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Bruno Tonioli.

Shirley, who was criticised for her choice on Sunday, has shared a series of snaps on Instagram after she attached herself to a drip.

The post also included a video clip of the media personality as she sat in a large armchair with her feet up.

She shared the images with her 136,000 Instagram followers.

Shirley wrote in the caption: "Very happy to receive this drip today to help me get well.
