Melody Thornton is still haunted by the "bad accident" she had during "Dancing On Ice" training.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer - who is partnered by Alexander Demetriou - was left with a bruised face after suffering a bad fall on the ice and it still flashes through her mind every time she steps out to skate.

She said: "I had a really bad accident when my face bounced off the ice. My face bounced on the ice and that memory bounced on my head, it still does every time I step on the ice."

The 34-year-old singer admitted she frequently finds bruises on her body after training with no idea how she got injured.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Wednesday (13.02.19), she said: "I just wake up from time to time like, I don't know what that is, I have a huge bruise across the top of my thigh for no reason, I have no idea."

"I was asked about another incident [between Gemma Collins and judge Jason Gardiner] and I was backstage getting ready.

"I described to myself that if we were a dysfunctional family, I'm the older sister who is at college with no idea what's going on."

Though she's doing well on the show, the "Buttons" hitmaker admitted she still struggles with the choreography of the routines.

He said: "I have a performance background, it wasn't as much about dance for me as it was singing.

" I really struggled with choreography whereas the rest had been dancing since they were 3 and even still I have the hardest time, skating and dancing.

"Yesterday they were like, "Do what you would do if you were standing on your feet", and I was like "I would do nothing"."
