Candice Brown fears Dancing on Ice axe after rib injury

Candice Brown thought she was going to get axed from "Dancing on Ice".

The former "Great British Bake Off" winner has been battling with sore ribs over the past few months while training for the reboot of the skating show, which will hit screens this weekend, and she has admitted there was one point she thought bosses were going to pull her from the competition because she was complaining of so many injuries.

Speaking to The Sun Online, the lipstick-loving baker said: "I think for the girls it is the ribs, I really suffered with my ribs a few weeks ago and just felt like "this is sore, this is sore", and then I sneezed and I thought I was going to pass out.

"Then it was that panic that "they were going to drop me from the show because I'm injured" but [skating partner] Matt [Evers] said it's the same every year.

"It's a really common thing as you're being lifted and it's your body weight and you just have to look after yourself. "I smell like a Sunday League changing room at the minute because of all the Deep Heat I'm using. I get in bed at night and [fiance] Liam's like "My eyes are watering" and I'm like "mine too"."

Despite her aches and pains, the 33-year-old star is looking forward to the start of the competition - and she doesn't even mind if she's the first to leave the series as she's just thrilled that she was able to take part and picked up a new skill.

She explained: "Just being able to say that I did it. That's a big one for me. I want to raise my confidence in another area, push myself and say, "Yes I did that!"
