Dancing On Ice contestant Jennifer Ellison ended up cutting her head open on this evening's latest live show.

The 28-year-old actress managed to injure herself with her own skate whilst performing with professional partner Daniel Whiston.

Jennifer disappeared after the performance as the judges revealed their scores and comments.

Daniel explained to host Phillip Schofield: "Jennifer's so flexible... she did a scorpion kick and hit the heel of her blade into the back of her head."

Karen Brady added: "It emphasises just how dangerous this is, the adrenaline is pumping and it went a bit too far tonight. It was an accident."

After returning from an ad break, Daniel continued: "[Jennifer's] just left now, she's in good hands and she's going to be OK.

"It was a very scary moment. I looked down and her whole head was just red [with blood]."
