Had a letter from the ROH yesterday saying that Darcey is scheduled for bone spur operations soon, and will be out for the rest of the season.

I am a little disappointed as we had booked to see her and Roberto Bolle in R&J in June, but I would like to wish Darcey all the best for her op and we hope to see her back soon.

We have Alessandra Ferri as a substitute for Darcey's performance still partnered by Bolle, which I am looking forward too.

Darcey hit by ankle injury

Darcey Bussell is to miss the remainder of the Royal Ballet's Covent Garden season because of an ankle injury.

Bussell was due to star in Kenneth MacMillan's production of Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House.

But she will sit out the rest of the season because she requires an operation to remove bone spurs from the front of her right ankle.

She will need six weeks to recuperate and hopes to rejoin the company in St Petersburg in late July for the second half of its Russian tour.

In March, Bussell was forced to abandon her performance in The Sleeping Beauty because of a foot injury.

Her pain was blamed on a frozen muscle but doctors have since discovered that it was exacerbated by the bone spurs.

Italian dancer Alessandra Ferri will replace Bussell as Juliet.
