Anthea Turner suffers rib injury during Dancing on Ice training
Wednesday 16 January 2013
Dancing On Ice star Anthea Turner is recovering after hurting a rib during training for the ITV show.
The 52-year-old presenter said her on-screen partner Andy Buchanan spotted the problem, telling fans on Twitter: "Lying on my bed with Hot-water bottle strapped to my ribcage. AndyBuchananTV felt it and heard 1 ping Y/day PAIN!!!!"
Turner is on the hit show with other celebrities including rugby player Gareth Thomas, Olympian Beth Tweddle and Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie.
Last week, Turner said her stint on the show was worth all the injuries because it had given her "the best bum I've ever had".
She told ITV1's Lorraine show: "The toning of the body - ice skating - it's skater bum, it's amazing. I don't care even if I crash out on Sunday, I have had three months of the best bum I've ever had since I was somewhere in my 20s. In fact, even in my 20s it probably wasn't this good."
