'Dancing On Ice' star Denise Van Outen suffered a serious shoulder injury in the rehearsals before the live show being forced to hospital after 'going flying' on the ice.
Denise Van Outen has suffered a gruesome injury while rehearsing for Dancing On Ice, dislocating her shoulder and being forced into hospital just before the launch of the ITV skating competition.
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
