Dancing On Ice’s Brian McFadden suffers bad fall just hours before big debut appearance on the showJanuary 12, 2019
DANCING On Ice’s Brian McFadden has suffered a bad fall just hours before his big debut appearance on the ITV show.
The former Westlife singer will take to the ice alongside five other celebrities on Sunday night, after the first six performed on the opening show last weekend.
However Brian, 38, is feeling “anxious” after the nasty fall during rehearsals this week.
His professional skating partner, Alex Murphy, told The Sun Online: “We had a fall, it was pretty bad.
“He was really anxious after that but I told him not to worry and hopefully it’s out of his system.”
Despite the accident, Alex, 29, is impressed with Brian’s progress.
She added: “He has come on drastically from when he first started and could hardly stand on the ice. “He’s also lost weight from all the training, but he doesn’t think so because he still eats burgers.”
Last year, Alex made it all the way to the semi-finals with Love Island hunk Kem Cetinay, and revealed that there are definitely similarities between him and new partner Brian.
She said: “He is so funny, he’s like a bigger version of Kem.

“He sings all the time too, and he brings everyone bananas to snack on. He’s the loveliest guy.”
Meanwhile Alex also praised Brian’s fellow celebrity skater, Gemma Collins, telling the Daily Mail: “I am so proud of Gemma.
“All of those who say she can’t do it, or that her weight was a disadvantage, all those awful remarks – Gemma still did it.”
