Dancing On Ice 2013: Anthea Turner injured in rehearsals!

Anthea Turner (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 star Anthea Turner is in pain after injuring her ribs in rehearsals.

The telly host follows in the skates of fellow competitor Samia Ghadie after she too broke a rip on the ice.

Anthea spent yesterday on bed rest according to The Sun, having felt one other ribs dislocate during practice for this weekend's first live show.

But Anthea, who was in the bottom two on Sunday night, is keen to get back to training.

"Anthea popped a rib during her duel routine on Monday and has a hot water bottle on her ribs all day, but she hasn’t missed any training — yet," a source told the newspaper.

They explained: “She is really worried about it, as she is in a lot of pain, but she’s a real trooper and is insisting that it will be all systems go for this weekend.

“Her attitude is that the show must go on, and she has told everyone she will be at training over the next few days, regardless of the rib injury.”

Yesterday Anthea tweeted: “Lying on my bed with hot-water bottle strapped to my ribcage. Felt it and heard 1 ping Y/day PAIN!!!!”

Next weekend's third live show will see the remaining ten celebs - Anthea, Oona King, Luke Campbell, Joe Pasquale, Gareh Thomas, Beth Tweddle, Samia Ghadie, Matt Lapkinskas, Shayne Ward, and Keith Chegwin - skate for the first time.

But in a twist, they'll face The Duel which first appeared on last year's show.
