The 41-year-old professional dancer climbed into a car after training for nine hours with celebrity partner Eddie Kadi.
Karen, who also ditched her wedding ring at the Pride of Britain Awards red carpet, wore a vibrant yellow coat and flashed a smile before she was driven off.
The longest serving Strictly professional also waved as she headed away from rehearsals, clearly showing the missing ring on her left hand.
Comedian Eddie also clambered in the car with Karen to leave the studio.
While walking to the car, Karen carried a pack of doughnuts from Krispy Kreme, which we’re sure would have helped them refuel after such a long time in the studio.

Karen and personal trainer Jordan tied the knot just 16 months ago, but speculation they had parted ways began recently.
It has been claimed that Karen and Jordan had a ‘tough time’ of things lately.
A source told The Mirror: ‘Karen and Jordan have had a tough time in the past few months and decided to split.

‘It’s obviously very sad for both of them. But there’s no ill will whatsoever.’
Karen and Jordan married at the luxurious country retreat of Hampshire’s Chewton Glen in 2022, with fellow Strictly stars Janette Manrara and Luba Mushtuk as bridesmaids.
On their first anniversary, she shared a gorgeous wedding photo with the caption: ‘I love you ♥️ You’re my human. Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary 💍 7.6.22.’

When previously asked for the secret to having a happy marriage, Karen credited ‘counseling’ for keeping them on track.
‘You know what I think communication is massive but learning how to communicate, you know, so we get outside help,’ she revealed to Hello magazine.
‘So whenever we’re having tricky moments or anything like that, it’s just seeing the vulnerable side of each other and understanding it and knowing that both of us are working on things because nobody is perfect.’

Karen was previously married to fellow dancer Kevin Clifton from 2015 until 2018. Kevin is now in a relationship with his Strictly partner Stacey Dooley who won the show in 2018, and the couple share daughter Minnie.
Prior to Kevin, she was married to former dance partner Matthew Hauer for nine years until 2009.

Karen had a tough time on Sunday’s episode of the BBC series, as she landed in the dance-off with Eddie.
Luckily for Karen and Eddie, 40, it was Paralympian Jody Cundy who was eliminated.
Following the show’s third elimination, Metro.co.uk‘s body language expert Judi James delved into Karen’s behaviour amid her ‘week from hell.’
Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday and Sunday on BBC One and iPlayer.
