Is her future on the show in jeopardy?

The former Pussycat Dolls singer alarmed fans after posting a photo of her severely bruised chin after taking a fall during rehearsals.

Not only did the fall cause the star to badly injure her jaw, but the collision also left the singer barely able to use her limbs.
Speaking to her fans on her Instagram story, she said: 'Just at the studio, here’s my chin, it’s swollen. There’s some bruising but I can cover it with make-up today.
‘I can’t hardly use my arms at all, which is great because who needs arms when you’re ice skating?'
Could this be the end of the road for Melody's Dancing On Ice journey?
Well despite being so badly hurt, it seems the injuries haven't stopped her spirit, with the skating hopeful vowing to find a way through Sunday's performance.
She added: 'I’m just working on staying positive. I gotta try to find a way to get through this performance on Sunday. If I look good, I don’t feel good.'
