Matt Lapinskas and Brianne (Dancing On Ice 2013)

The Dancing On Ice 2013 celebs haven't even performed live once yet and already there are injuries!

Soap star Matt Lapinskas has been the first casualty of the series, with still more than two weeks to go before the launch.

Matt said: “I have a few bumps and bruises. Early on, I fell over and cracked my hip bone on the ice.

“I fell over a few times on the first day. I now find I fall trying to do the lifts.

“But my biggest fear is something going wrong on the first live show or my costume splitting open.”

His fellow soap competitor Samia Ghadie however is feeling a lot better.

The 30-year-old, who has been partnered with pro skater Sylvain Longchambon revealed she managed to stay on her feet for the first month of training without ever falling.

However she revealed: "My hips are so painful that if I touch them with the tip of my finger, it hurts.

Meanwhile, asked about her perfect skating partner, Sylvain replied: "Coronation Street co-star Chris Fountain because he is my mate and he is brilliant at skating!"
