Gemma Collins using wheelchair after fall

Gemma Collins is having to use a wheelchair after her horror fall on "Dancing On Ice".

The "Only Way Is Essex" star was skating to Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" when she slipped up and fell face first onto the ice and now her boyfriend James "Arg" Argent has revealed she is using her mother Joan's wheelchair as her knees are very bruised.

He said: "Gemma couldn't sleep last night because she's in so much pain. The swelling around her thighs and knees is horrific, and she's black and blue all over. She's struggling to walk so I had to carry her to the car earlier, and she's been using Joan's wheelchair on and off all day because she's in so much pain.

"She's seeing a private doctor tomorrow who will determine what will happen next. It will be her worst nightmare if she's forced to pull out of the show, she doesn't want to be a sick note, she wants to continue and we strongly believe she's a real contender to win."

And Arg has slammed those who have accused Gemma of staging her fall, insisting they are "idiots" for thinking that way.

He added to The Sun Online: "Anyone who thinks Gemma faked the fall and risked life-threatening injures is an idiot. She had a feeling that something was going to go wrong on the night ... and she was right!"

Gemma had previously admitted she was "absolutely devastated and embarrassed" by the fall but couldn't wait to get back onto the ice.
