Denise van Outen was rushed to hospital earlier this week after a fall during Dancing on Ice rehearsals.

The 46 year old actress dislocated her shoulder after falling face first as she practiced her performance with her skating partner Matt Evers.

Dancing on Ice medics gave Denise, who previously revealed she moved her skating partner into her home, urgent treatment but she had to go hospital to investigate her injury.

There are now fears that Denise may not be able to take part in Sunday night’s opening show on ITV.

Denise said: “I’ve taken a few tumbles since we started training but with this one I knew immediately it wasn’t good.

“I was rehearsing with Matt, hit my toe pick and went flying.

“Straightaway I knew I’d done something. I just thought, ‘Please don’t let it be a break.’

“The on-site medics and physio checked me over immediately and my shoulder was quickly iced.”

Denise was taken to hospital following the fall at ITV’s ice rink at Bovindon Airfield, Hertfordshire on Thursday 14 January.

The Only Way Is Essex voiceover Denise, who's ex recently revealed he didn't earn a penny last year, received an X-ray, which revealed she had dislocated her shoulder and received damage to her tendons.

Doctors have ordered her to rest up to speed up her recovery, but it’s unsure if Denise will make the opening show.

If she does perform with partner Matt, the performance will be adapted to account for her injured shoulder.

She continued to The Sun on Sunday: “Ultimately I had to have a trip to hospital where I was told I had a partial dislocation and tendon damage.

“It’s really affected my ability to move my left arm. It’s touch and go as to whether I can skate tonight.

“I’m working on recovering and hoping and praying I can do my routine.

“We are taking it hour by hour, I'm resting as much as I can and hoping for the best.

“I’m having ongoing physio and I’m determined that nothing is going to keep me from getting on the ice.

“I’ve got everything crossed that I can heal enough.”

She added: “I’m so proud of the routine we’ve worked on and I just really want to put on a good show.

“We’ve had to make some changes to not put any additional strain on my shoulder.

“At a time when the NHS is so overstretched, I must say an enormous ‘Thank you’ to them for looking after me.

“Matt has been brilliant and he’s taking good care of me. We’re working so hard to put on an amazing show tonight.”
