Dancing On Ice star Jake Quickenden has seriously injured himself during practise ahead of the final this Sunday

We reckon we call all agree that Jake Quickenden is the favourite to win the Dancing On Ice final this Sunday.

The former X Factor star has become hugely popular on the show - and while any of the three finalists could win the show and we'd be happy, there's definitely a soft spot in our hearts for our Jake.

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.

HOWEVER. Everything has been flung into the air after Jake revealed on Lorraine this morning that he's only gone and got injured.

Jake, are you aware there are only a FEW DAYS til the final?! Be more careful!


ESPECIALLY after he was in a car accident last week due to the snow, suffering from whiplash after the bump.

Back to the matter at hand - the poor lad has dislocated his thumb, but told Lorraine that he wasn't letting it bother him: "I dislocated my thumb yesterday. It's a lot of fuss over nothing - it's all precautionary, I'll be fine!"
