Dancing On Ice’s Rebekah Vardy ‘petrified’ as she prepares to attempt headbanger

Dancing On Ice star Rebekah Vardy has admitted she’s “petrified” her headbanger on tonight’s show will end in disaster after so many stars suffered injuries.

The ITV skating show has been plagued by accidents, with two of the contestants being forced to quit and several pros being hospitalised.

Rebekah, 38, is taking on one of the show’s riskiest moves in tonight’s live show – the notorious headbanger in which her partner Andy Buchanan will swing her around by the ankles.

The WAG has admitted she’s scared something will go wrong because DOI has been blighted by so many other accidents.

However, she’s putting her complete trust in Andy and will give it her best shot.

She told The Sun On Sunday: “It’s petrifying, but I’m an adrenaline junkie and I trust Andy completely.

“I know he would never let ­anything bad happen to me. It’s given me a vote of confidence to be able to do those things.

“I have to practise with a helmet, everything we’re doing on the show is dangerous…”

Rebekah added her footballer husband Jamie is especially concerned for her, saying: “Jamie’s been so ­supportive, but he begs me, ‘Please don’t hurt yourself’.

“The amount of contestant injuries is a harsh reminder of how ­dangerous the show is.

“You have to stay focused and ­listen to the instructions properly.”

She has also revealed her hard work in training has paid off in more ways than one.

Rebekah has been losing so much weight, the costume department need to keep taking in her outfits.

She previously admitted she can finally see her abs again, saying: “I think the tan is making them look better than they are but I’ll take it as I never thought I’d see my abs ever again.

“I didn’t look like this before the skate training started and I probably won’t once it’s finished but skating every day for months is an extremely tough workout.

“The professionals make it look effortless but it’s a hardcore sport.”

Dancing on Ice has been dealt a hammer blow after losing so many contestants, with Jason Donovan becoming the fifth celebrity to bow out.

The Aussie star is sitting out tonight’s show after being struck down with back pain but he’s expected to return next weekend.

Joe-Warren Plant previously bowed out after testing positive for Covid-19.

The actor’s exit followed the departure of Billie Faiers, who was forced to leave the show on doctors’ orders after a fall in training.

The former Towie star, 31, suffered a concussion and was not well enough to continue.

Denise van Outen, 46, was forced to withdraw in January after a nasty fall which left her in “unbearable pain”.

She suffered three bone fractures and a partial dislocation of her shoulder and was later told by doctors she had to pull out.

Just days before, Rufus Hound was forced to leave the competition after he come into contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.

Bosses have already used up both of their reserves – Matt Richardson for Rufus and gymnast Amy Tinkler for Denise, so they have no more skaters to put on the ice.
