Dancing On Ice: Dan Whiston nearly looses a testicle!

Beth Tweddle (Dancing On Ice 2013)

A nasty Dancing On Ice skating accident left pro performer Dan Whiston nearly losing a testicle!

The skater, who is partnered with Gymnast Beth Tweddle on the ITV1 series, injured himself whilst training for the first live show at the weekend.

The hunky performer revealed: "I nearly had a life changing accident with Beth.

"We were both rehearsing a trick where she puts her skate right on my crown jewels - but in training her heel got caught right on them.

"My life flashed in front of my eyes but luckily I escaped with both my balls intact!"

Fortunately it all went alright on the night for the pair, who shot through to the next round despite some harsh comments from Jason Gardiner on the panel.

But Dan revealed he was glad to see Jason back as a Dancing On Ice judge, even if the critical ice panelist was only too quick to dish out some barbed feedback on Sunday night's first live show!

He said: "Jason Gardiner is back and I'm so happy. Honest! Funnily enough, most of us really missed him!"
