Dancing On Ice 2013: Samia Ghadie suffers whiplash in training

Samia Ghadie (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 contestant Samia Ghadie has suffered concussion and whiplash in training after a nasty fall.

Twelve celebs will be competing in the new series of the show which starts on ITV1 this Sunday night.

And it sounds as though it's been a tough few weeks for the stars as they train for their first live show.

Despite her fall, Coronation Street actress Samia claims that she's finding the hard parts of the routine easy.

She said: “I find lifts easy – although I get frustrated with some of the basic moves. Some days you want to cry.”

Meanwhile Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle has been installed as the favourite to win the show with the bookies, but she reckons her first live performance could get some nasty comments from the judges.

She admitted: “We have to have straight legs in gym but on the ice that is the worst thing. So I use a tape recorder in training to tell me, ‘Bend the knees!’ ”

And TOWIE's Lauren Goodger said she was also nervous about being judged by the panel.

She explained: “I am nervous because they may look at me and think I am from reality TV and there won’t be much respect. I hope the judges take me for who I am.”
