Joe Swash is said to have suffered a 'nasty accident' on the set of Dancing On Ice, just weeks before he is due to dance on the first live show. The TV star, who is partnered with professional figure skater Alexandra Schauman, reportedly fell and hit his head while rehearsing in the rink. Associate Creative Director Dan Whiston told The Sun: “Joe fell and hit his head in rehearsals, it's horrible when it happens but it does sometimes.”

Joe had an injury during training

It seems Joe is not the only one to have suffered a fall while training for the show, which airs next year. Dan added: “There are cuts bruises, knocks and scrapes. They've all had their fair share, there's nobody that's had one bigger or worse than the others. They've all had that.”

Taking to Instagram to share a selection of snaps from the day, Stacey wrote: “Had such a lovely day with Joe and the boys today. It’s been so long that we’ve all been together and just been carefree and silly. It was so needed. Love you @realjoeswashy we’ve missed you.”

The show’s Associate Creative Director added that footballer Kevin has had his fair share of falls already. He said: “Kevin is so big when he falls, he falls, it's like Blackpool Tower going down, at the beginning he had some really nasty falls when he fell on his back, he went down in the masterclass on his lower back and it was bad.”
