The 46-year-old star's tumble was documented as she rehearsed with partner Matt Evers, which left her on the floor and wincing in agony before medics rushed to her side.

Suffering a dislocated left shoulder, damage to her tendons and plenty of bruising, she has since posted to Instagram to thank everyone for their support along with a series of snaps from the ordeal.

Denise wrote: "Thank you for all your lovely messages this morning. Told you I’m clumsy on the ice!"

"Massive thanks to everyone @itv. (Medics & production) and our glorious @nhswebsite for looking after me because I know how overstretched you are at the moment."

"Also thank you to @themattevers for being a true friend and taking care of me and making me laugh when I feel like crying."

Denise revealed to this tabloid she knew she had seriously injured herself the moment her fell happened.

She said: "I’ve taken a few tumbles since we started training but with this one I knew immediately it wasn’t good.

"I was rehearsing with Matt, hit my toe pick and went flying."

“Straightaway I knew I’d done something. I just thought, ‘Please don’t let it be a break.’"

"The on-site medics and physio checked me over immediately and my shoulder was quickly iced."

Ever the trooper, Denise still put on a serious show, skating to Proud Mary
