Dancing On Ice 2023 star rushed to hospital after horror fall

The ITV show’s creative director Dan Whiston revealed that there were lots of falls, including Sylvain needing to be rushed to hospital. He reportedly had his chin glued after hitting it on the ice during rehearsals.

The professional skater is the husband of Mollie‘s Coronation Street co-star, Samia Longchambon. Mollie is known for her role as Nina Lucas on Coronation Street, although fans have found her unrecognisable since ditching her two-tone hairstyle.

Dan told The Sun: “We’ve had lots of falls this week, with pro-skater Sylvain rushed to hospital after hitting his chin on the ice during rehearsals.”

Despite the horror fall, Mollie and Sylvain impressed the judges in Musical week and took home a score of 28.5. The pair performed an emotional routine of She Used To Be Mine from the musical Waitress, written by Sara Bareilles.

Not the first horror fall this year

Pop star and member of The Wanted Siva Kaneswaran passed out in a horror accident in December. He cracked his head on the rink during training. He was diagnosed with a mild concussion but continued to perform.
