Dancing on Ice star Rebekah Vardy admits injuring her partner: 'There was a lot of blood'

Rebekah Vardy, 38, is partnered with figure skating professional Andy Buchanan for the new series of Dancing on Ice. However, the pair had an unfortunate incident during training that left Andy with his “face cut open”.

Rebekah shared: “I spent training today pretty much upside down.”

“It’s intense. It’s dangerous. I cut Andy’s face open [with my skate before]. There was a lot of blood,” she added to The Times.

Andy addressed the incident on his social media account, as he shared an explanatory video.

The pro figure skater described it as a “freak accident” after Rebekah’s blade caught his face while they were performing a flip.

He added: “It’s traumatic when that happens and Becky bounced back and came in ready to go and was a great partner.”

Her oldest child, Megan, 13, is from a previous relationship, and her nine-year-old son, Taylor, is also from a previous relationship.

The new season of Dancing on Ice will air this weekend and is being filmed with a COVID- safe set.

Contestants on the series this year include Denise Van Outen, Myleene Klass, Joe-Warren Plant, Colin Jackson, Rufus Hound, Faye Brookes, Jason Donovan, Sonny Jay, Graham Bell, Rebekah Vardy, Lady Leshurr, and Billie Shepherd.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will return to front the popular skating competition.

The pair have presented the show since the series was revived back in 2018, and they were also the hosts of the original version from 2006 to 2011.

The expert Ice Panel will include Jayne Torvill and  Christopher Dean, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo who all appeared on the show last year.

Torvill and Dean are Britain’s best-known ice-skating duo.

The pair won gold at the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Games, becoming the first-ever non-Russian skaters to win the Ice Dance.

However, the couple will not perform on the ice together due to the new strict regulations in place to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Dancing on Ice returns Sunday, January 17 at 6pm on ITV.
