Dancing On Ice 2013: Keith Chegwin battling rib injury

Keith Chegwin (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 celeb Keith Chegwin is battling a rib injury ahead of tonight's show.

The comic has been in the bottom two twice already and so will need to impress both the viewers and judges tonight.

But Keith's training has been cut short on doctors orders to make sure he's well enough to skate this evening.

A source told the Sunday Mirror today: “Keith came in for training and was extremely breathless. The doctor gave him the once-over and immediately decided to send him away.

"She said if he tried to carry on with practice there would be no way that he’d be able to compete. He missed an entire day’s training.”

Keith's not the only DOI celeb who's been in the wars this week.

Fellow funnyman Joe Pasquale has been to the doctors with a case of shingles while Gareth Thomas has had to skip training sessions due to a foot infection.

The source added: “It really is like the walking wounded at Dancing on Ice. There are so many knocks, bumps and illnesses that it’s hard to remember who’s fit and who isn’t.

Dancing on Ice 2013 airs on Sunday at 6.15pm on ITV.
