Coleen Nolan may have to miss Sunday’s Dancing on Ice quarter-final after injuring her wrist in rehearsals, according to the papers.
The Mirror reports that the Dancing on Ice presenter – who has battled against the odds to make it to the final five of the show – hurt herself after tumbling over on the ice and landing heavily on her left hand.
She and partner Stuart Widdall had been practising some complicated moves for Sunday’s routine at the time.
“I knew I’d done something bad when I hit the floor,” Coleen told the paper, “the pain was excruciating.”
“It’s your worst fear to have an injury at this stage of the competition.”
X-rays revealed Coleen may have a small fracture in one of the bones in her wrist.
Producers are due to decide over the weekend whether Coleen is fit to skate on Sunday.
“It would be a nightmare to pull out of the show so close to the final,” she admitted.
“I’d feel I’d let everyone down who has supported me. And my family would be really sad.”
If she does skate, Coleen is favourite to be eliminated on Sunday, with bookmakers Paddy Power offering odds of 11-10 on her getting the boot.
