Dancing On Ice 2019: Wes Nelson suffers injury just before the final

dancing on ice 2019 training - 8

Wes Nelson has suffered a nasty injury just ahead of the Dancing On Ice 2019 final.

Love Island's Wes is one of three finalists left in the show together with former Strictly Come Dancing pro James Jordan and X Factor singer Saara Aalto.

In training for Sunday's show, Wes has sustained a wrist injury just one day before the Dancing on Ice final.

He has since been seen and treated by the show physio having been told he had popped a small bone out of his wrist.

This week all three finalists will start by performing two routines each. The first will be a showcase, choreographed for them by Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, and the second the celeb's favourite skate from the series.

One celeb will then be eliminated before the top two perform the Bolero.

Although judges will comment, it'll be viewer votes alone that determine the winner on the evening.

Ahead of the live show, James is the overwhelming favourite to win Dancing on Ice this weekend according to bookies Ladbrokes.

The former Dancing on Ice star is chalked up with odds of just 4/9 to be crowned as the 2019 victor, leaving former long-term front runner Wes to settle for second spot at 7/4.

Unfortunately for Saara she finds herself as the rank outsider to cause an almighty upset as a 25/1 chance with the bookies.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "James has wowed the judges, viewers and bookies with his perfect routines in the semi-final, so given his background it's not a huge surprise to see him emerge as the clear favourite for glory at the right time."

The Dancing On Ice 2019 final airs this Sunday night on ITV.

Alongside the performances and results from the finalists, there will be a special group skate from all this year's contestants.

Plus, Jayne & Torvill will return to the ice with the show's professionals.
