Gemma Collins returns to training after Dancing On Ice fall

Share article:

Gemma Collins is back in training following her fall on "Dancing On Ice".

The 37-year-old reality star took a tumble during her routine with partner Matt Evers on Sunday's (27.01.19) live show and despite bruises and pain, her partner has insisted she's "back with a fighting spirit" and had participated in a session with skating legends Torvill and Dean on Tuesday (29.01.19).

Speaking on "This Morning", Matt said: "She's good, she's still bruised she's still icing her knees but she's back with fighting spirit so what doesn't kill you makes you stronger that's for sure.

"She saw a physio yesterday and all is well ... We had a session yesterday with Torvill and Dean working on the new judge's challenge."

The professional skater was seen protecting Gemma from hitting the edge of the ice rink as she fell by moving in front of her and Matt, 42, went on to explain that it was simply his "training as a skater" to "protect the girl at all cost".

He said: "Part of my training as a skater as the male in the partnership you're kind of taught in training how to save the girl at all cost. When I saw her slide I was kind of aware that she was really close to the edge so it was first and foremost my job to make sure she didn't slide into the barrier and she didn't."
