Dancing on Ice contestants struck down with flu

Share article:

The "Dancing on Ice" contestants have been wiped out by a virus.

Bosses are hoping that Kem Cetinay, Donna Air and Lamar will be fit enough to compete in this weekend's live show after they were left bed ridden with the flu.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's a race against time to get fit again ahead of this weekend's show.

"Not a day foes by when there isn't someone else being laid low. It has never happened this bad on the show, especially as it happened at the start of the show too."

And it's not just bosses who are concerned as professional skater Matt Evers - who was booted out of the competition along with his partner Candice Brown last month - is worried that he'll come down with the bug and it'll put him out of the group routines.

Writing in his Best magazine column, Matt said: "We are over halfway through and the relentless pace takes its toll. Donna Air said she feels like her body needs a week in bed. It's what we're all feeling."

And this isn't the first time the contestants have been rocked with illness as Candice, Stephanie Waring and Alex Beresford were all knocked out with a virus just days before the show hit screens last month - but luckily they all recovered in time.

An insider said at the time: "People are dropping like flies."

The competition has also been plagued with injury as Max Evans" partner Ale Izquierdo was rushed to hospital two weeks ago when the rugby hunk accidentally dropped her during rehearsals and she smashed the back of her head on the ice.
