Rebekah Vardy has revealed she injured her professional partner so badly during Dancing On Ice rehearsals that he had to go to hospital.

Vardy, who is married to Leicester City's Jamie Vardy, is teamed with Andy Buchanan for the ITV show.

She said: "I seem to be the only one who's ended up hurting my pro, putting him in hospital.

"I do apologise. No, it was awful; I think I've just come to terms with scarring his face."


She added: "We were practising 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.

"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."

Vardy has also appeared on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! but said braving the ice was far more terrifying.
