Jake Quickenden will skate in final after dislocating thumb

Share article:

Jake Quickenden has confirmed he will skate in Sunday's (12.03.18) "Dancing on Ice" final after he was rushed to hospital with a dislocated thumb earlier this week.

The former "X Factor" star worried fans when it was revealed that he'd injured his hand while practicing for his routine yesterday (06.03.18) but, despite the pain, he is adamant he'll be hitting the ice with his partner Vanessa Bauer this weekend.

Taking to his Twitter account last night, he said: "So I hurt my thumb today had to go for xray and MRI scan but I will [100 per cent] be skating on Sunday, I have not come this far to let a sore thumb stop me! Thanks for the nice messages. (sic)"

Viewers were no doubt hoping that Jake would pull out something spectacular for the final considering he was awarded the perfect score - 40 out of 40 - by the judges last week, but he's decided he'll now have to "play it safe" because of his painful thumb.

He explained when a fan asked why he'd had an MRI scan on his thumb: "Dislocated so just being on the safe side with lifts and stuff mate (sic)."

He tweeted: "Today this one @JakeQuickenden injured his thumb quite badly. He went to A&E, X-ray, scans, cleared and braced up.

"He then got straight back on the ice. Nothing is gunna stop him. His attitude is incredible and work ethic is second to non. #believe #achieve (sic)"

Jake hasn't had much luck recently when it comes to training as he was involved in a minor car accident last week when the snow hit the UK hard for a week.

He wrote at the time: "Be careful if you're out in the snow, had a nightmare morning, skidded going life 5mph and bumped another car that was broken down, everyone ok, but the roads are tragic so please be careful!! (sic)"
