The Towie star’s future in the contest has been thrown into jeopardy as she was spotted confined to a wheelchair a day after her nasty fall
Gemma Collins’ future in Dancing on Ice has been thrown into jeopardy as she was spotted being pushed around in a wheelchair by James ‘Arg’ Argent following her nasty fall.
On Sunday night, Gemma suffered a painful looking tumble as she face-planted the ice after struggling to keep up with dance partner Matt Evers during their routine.
Gemma fought back the tears as she stayed to listen to the judges’ critique before being rushed off to a physio backstage.
But less than 24 hours after, Gemma appeared to be still suffering from her injuries as she was
rendered unable to walk
Taking time out of rehearsals for an outing on Monday, Gemma was pictured being aided by boyfriend Arg as she hobbled out of her apartment in Essex on one foot.
The Towie star then gave a light wave and a smile for the waiting cameras as she had to be helped into their car.
Later in the day, Gemma’s injury appeared to worsen as she had to be pushed into her friend’s house in a wheelchair.
The GC kept her left elevated while doting Arg took hold of the handles.
Earlier in the day Gemma took to social media to break her silence on her fall.
Revealing she was ‘absolutely devastated and embarrassed’, Gemma told followers: “My heart is broken but when I went down I thought of @gypsyking101 Tyson Fury and knew I had to get back up & carry on!
“Can’t thank you enough for your support on social media and picking up the phone to vote! Im in a lot of pain but bring on fantasy week!!!”
Viewers watched in horror as Gemma took a nasty tumble on the ice during her third performance with professional partner Matt Evers on Sunday’s show.
But despite the mishap, the pair still sailed through to next week with Gemma receiving her highest score of the series from judges.
While Gemma put on a brave face, after the show she was said to have broken down in floods of tears.
Arg took to Instagram to document the full extent of her injuries.
Sharing a video Gemma’s bruised and battered legs, Arg revealed his girlfriend was swollen from her fall on the ice and covered in scratches.
Following the show, Gemma and Arg enjoyed some down time as they headed out for dinner with friends at a nearby restaurant.
Gemma was seen sporting a huge ice pack on her leg and some comfortable slippers on her feet as she recovered from her ordeal.
It was reported she was forced to skip rehearsals on Monday and would be seeing a private doctor later in the week.
