BILLIE SHEPHERD FORCED TO WITHDRAW FROM DANCING ON ICE AFTER FALL
Reality star Billie Shepherd has been forced to withdraw from Dancing On Ice after a fall during rehearsals left her concussed.
An ITV spokesperson said: "During rehearsals for this week’s show, Billie Shepherd has had a fall. Taking the expert advice of the Dancing on Ice medical team, she sadly cannot perform this weekend and will therefore now withdraw from the competition...
"We wish Billie well as she now takes the time to recover."
It follows the news earlier this week that Rufus Hound has also withdrawn after testing positive for COVID-19. Comedian Matt Richardson joins the show this weekend as his replacement.
As both back-up celebrities have now joined the competition, Billie will not be replaced.
Dancing On Ice continues Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
