She added: "We were practicing a trick and we changed it slightly from something that we would normally do – and we did it on a daily basis and everything would go right and nothing would go wrong.

"On this occasion, it went very wrong and the back of my heel and my blade sliced his face open.

"He was fine. All he was concerned about was making sure that he could skate the next day, where I was not interested in that in the slightest, I just wanted to make sure that he was OK.

"It was quite scary. But it brings back the realisation that what we’re doing is really bloody dangerous, but he’s fine. It’s a bit dramatic but he’s OK."

Dancing On Ice returns this Sunday, with the likes of Billie Shepherd, Rufus Hound and Jason Donovan all joining Rebekah Vardy on the star-studded line-up.

Dancing On Ice is on Sunday 17 January at 6pm on ITV
