The 38-year-old injured his upper arm during rehearsals, but has continued to skate on despite the discomfort.

However it seems the dad-of-two might have to hang up his skates after the painful prang took a turn for the worse.

They said: "Brian has been throwing himself into training but is finding it really tough as his back is giving him issues. He has been to see the show's physio, but it's looking increasingly likely that he will have to pull out of the show.

"Obviously he's determined to keep trying but he knows there's only so much he can do without inflicting a serious injury and causing long-term damage."

Brian isn't the only one who's come in to trouble on the ice.
