Denise Van Outen has quit Dancing On Ice after suffering a nasty injury.
The 46 year old took to the rink on the hit ITV show for the first time last week, where she partially dislocated her shoulder in rehearsals.
She has now revealed she has been forced to pull out of the show, sharing a heartfelt message with her 507,000 Instagram followers.
Alongside the photo of her and professional partner Matt Evers, she wrote: "GUTTED! If you've been watching @dancingonice you will be aware that just over a week ago I had a nasty fall and injured my shoulder.
"I managed to skate my first dance with @themattevers on the live show through a gritted smile because the pain was unbearable.
"I've tried as hard as I can to carry on because I love the show and the amazing team in front and behind the cameras. Initially we thought with rest I could make a return to the ice, but a recent MRI scan has shown that I have 3 bone fractures as well as a partial dislocation. OUCH! No wonder I’ve been in agony.
"I won't be able to do any lifts, tricks or solo skating on the show due to my injury. I'm going to bail out gracefully with my DOI bling sling.
"@themattevers has been the most incredible support and skate partner (a true friend) and I'm so grateful for his expertise in teaching me (ice virgin) the basics.
"I just wish I was well enough to learn all the fabulous tricks my injury won’t allow me to do. Chair dancing on Ice with a massive pie won’t get us points on the leaderboard. I'm actually proud of what I’ve achieved (not much, lowest scores so far).
"If you don't mind I'm going to give myself a couple of points for bravery for doing cartwheels on Ice at 46 with broken bones.
"I wish all the celebs, pros and judges the best of luck for the rest of the series. I'm rooting for you all. Bunch of legends."
