Another Dancing On Ice contestant has been left with a serious injury following rehearsals

This series of Dancing On Ice has been seemingly PLAGUED by injuries and accidents.

Before the show had even started, England cricketer Monty Panesar was forced to pull out after breaking his ankle, and poor old Kem cracked his head on the ice.

More recently, Max Evans' professional partner Ale Izquierdo was on bed rest for 24 hours after smashing her head while practising a lift - and Antony Cotton's performance two weeks ago was hanging in the balance after he fractured two ribs in rehearsals.

James Jordan, 2019

James Jordan and Alexandra Schauman won 2019's trophy despite some fierce competition from Love Island's Wes Nelson and his partner, last year's winning professional Vanessa Bauer.Judges called their rendition of the famous Bolero "the best the show had ever seen" despite the first dance of the final failing to top the leader board. Early on in the 2019 competition, James was criticized for having an unfair advantage over the other contestants because of his extensive dancing experience.

Joe Swash, 2020

Joe Swash and Alex Murphy took home the 2020 trophy, despite Diversity's Peri Kiely being the bookies favourite since the beginning of the competition.However, it wasn't all plain sailing for Joe throughout the competition. Not only did he find himself at the bottom of the leaderboard in week three and have an ear infection, he also had to swap professional dance partners after Alexandra Schauman fell and injured herself during rehearsals, forcing her to drop out of the show.

But the latest injury is even more serious, as Cheryl Baker has been left in agony after seriously injuring her arm in rehearsals.

The 63-year-old, who was booted off the competition two weeks ago, has admitted she can barely bend her right arm after a fall, and now needs an emergency MRI scan to get to the root of the injury.

Poor Cheryl says the injury completely shattered her self-belief, and could have been the reason she was knocked out of the competition so early.

Dancing On Ice

She told The Sun: "It knocked my confidence completely and I was terrified then of falling again because it really hurt me. It sent a signal up my spine and gave me an instant headache.

"I still can’t roll over onto my right side when I’m in bed. When I put my coat on, I can’t bend my right arm enough to get it in my sleeve.

"I didn’t realise the danger element, I didn’t understand how dangerous ice skating can be."

Oh dear...

Thankfully, a potential broken arm hasn't ruined Cheryl's memories of the show, as she added: "I saw the excitement and the challenge. I don’t regret it at all. I think also I don’t want to say goodbye to my new family."

Thank goodness for that!

Get well soon, Cheryl!
