Jamie Laing's place on Strictly Come Dancing 'in jeopardy as leaked explicit images do the rounds'... as Made In Chelsea star ALSO suffers foot injury
Jamie Laing is reportedly concerned about explicit photos of his genitals being circulated, fearing it will get him into trouble with the producers of Strictly Come Dancing.
And adding to the drama, the reality TV veteran, 30, has also been diagnosed with a foot condition called plantar fasciitis - which could affect his ability to train.
Jamie recently announced that he had signed up to take part on the BBC dancing competition and is said to be 'mortified' as 'd**k pics are doing the rounds in various Made In Chelsea Whatsapp groups, and among a few friends.'
A source told The Sun: 'Some are just funny, boys being boys stuff. But others are more sexy shots. It is these he is terrified about going viral.

'He doesn’t want his family seeing this side of him. And it’s hardly ideal for a family show on BBC.
'Jamie is adamant the pictures are quite old though, and he hasn’t taken anything naughty recently.'
A seperate informant also told the publication about the foot condition Jamie has been diagnosed with - something he admitted to on his podcast Private Parts.
They said: 'Obviously having an underlying foot injury is less than ideal for Jamie as he goes into Strictly rehearsals. It's just weeks before the show begins, and training has already started so it's concerning that Jamie has had to have treatment for fasciitis which could easily affect his ability to dance.'
A source since clarified that Jamie's injury is something he suffered in the past and has now healed; while the photos in question are years old.
This comes after Jamie was accused as having an unfair advantage on Strictly after revealing he studied contemporary dance for a year at Leeds University.
Worried: The reality TV veteran, 30, who has signed up to take part on the BBC dancing competition this autumn, is said to be 'mortified' as 'd**k pics are doing the rounds in various Made In Chelsea Whatsapp groups, and among a few friends'
A source told The Sun: 'Some are just funny, boys being boys stuff. But others are more sexy shots. It is these he is terrified about going viral'
Jamie, who studied theatre and performance, said on The Greatest Dancer podcast: 'When it came to finally enrolling in my course, people had already picked what they wanted to do and the only thing that was left was contemporary dance.
'So for the whole first year I had to do contemporary dance. As I was the only boy, I had to be the bulb in the flowers and all the girls were petals.
'All of my friends were sitting in the front row and they were all laughing at me and I thought "this sucks", so my experience of dance has been skewed a bit by that.
'It was the worst thing in the world, I'd wake up every day and think 'why have I done this.'
The Made In Chelsea star, 30, who is part of this year's line-up, reminisced how he was a flower bulb in a routine called Summertime
Strictly alum Mollie King questioned if his previously fore-goings into the world of dance will aid him in the competition- especially as contemporary has been introduced as a new genre.
But, Jamie said: 'Contemporary dance you can do anything you want, I feel like if you're given some ribbons and you roll about on the floor, everyone is going to be like "that is contemporary".
It comes after Jamie and his girlfriend Sophie Haboo put on a defiant display at the Made In Chelsea launch on Tuesday, firmly shutting down rumours they had split over him joining Strictly.
The couple have already had to weather a few storms in their relationship so far, after it was claimed they had split over fears they would be hit by the 'Strictly Curse' during his time on the dancing show.

It was claimed that the Made In Chelsea beauty, was nervous of her co-star beau, getting up close to a bevy of beautiful dancers as he 'struggles with monogamy at the best of times'.
A source revealed to Mail On Sunday: 'As Sophie knew fellow Made In Chelsea personality Jamie had been chosen to appear on Strictly Come Dancing, she gave him the elbow, claiming lothario Laing struggles with monogamy at the best of times, let alone while he's dancing the tango with a beautiful woman.'
However, a spokesperson for Sophie revealed the couple were still on, stating: 'they are very much together.'
Awkward: Despite his university dance experience Jamie struggled to do the worm on Loose Women earlier this month

Jamie announced he will be taking part on Strictly during Loose Women, where he was immediately grilled about the prospect of the ominous so-called Strictly Curse.
'Sophie and I are dating but we are not boyfriend/girlfriend. I haven't told her [about Strictly]. Surprise!' he said, adding: 'I'm not too worried about the curse. I'm sure nobody wants to kiss me.'
This whetted fans appetites even further regarding what to expect from MIC when it returns.
The reality star will take on the grueling Strictly training regime alongside filming duties for MIC which normally shoots its autumn season in the lead up to Christmas, wrapping at the end of November.
This will overlap heavily with Strictly, should Jamie do well on the dancing series, meaning a packed schedule no doubt.
