Jayne Torvill said the Dancing On Ice production team is sad

The celebrity skating competition is on a week-long hiatus after a number of participants suffer injuries or contract a coroan virus.

Torvill, a judge on the program, told ITV’s Lorraine she hopes to see some “great routines” when the show returns, as attendees will have to prepare for longer.

Emmerdale star Joe-Warren Plant and his professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer were eliminated from the competition after testing positive for coronavirus, as was comedian Rufus Hound.

Reality TV star Billie Shepherd also left the show early after injuring herself in a fall, while actress and singer Denise Van Outen retired after partially dislocating her shoulder during workout.

Actor Jason Donovan missed last week’s episode after injuring his back.

Torvill said, “We have this little saying, if you don’t fall, don’t try, but in that regard we don’t want people to push themselves too far to get hurt.

“We always take precautions and give advice.”

Co-judge Christopher Dean told Lorraine that Donovan had “rested” and was “fit and all right, we’ll see him next week”.

“He loves the show, he loves what he does, and he loves to come back. We look forward to seeing him back on the ice soon,” added Dean.

On Friday, Van Outen discussed her recovery from an injury with the BBC’s Morning Live.

She said it was “a pretty bad fall,” adding, “I’m a little concerned now because I have a frozen shoulder because I have very little movement. I feel like I’ve taken a small step back.

“I have another scan on Tuesday next week, so I should know more.

“But it’s a strange thing, if it’s your shoulder because you can’t really occupy it, you can’t hold it in a sling, so all you have to do is try to keep it moving so that I keep forgetting … me. I am.” Still broke bones. “
