Dancing On Ice's Jason Donovan forced to quit show after failing to recover from back injury
26th February 2021

JASON Donovan has been forced to quit Dancing on Ice after failing to
recover from his back injury in time.

Neighbours star Jason, 52, missed the ITV show over a week ago with
bosses hoping their big money signing would be fit enough to return this
weekend.

But he was in too much pain today, and had to tell bosses he could no
longer skate in the hit show.

It means that despite producers for the show pausing the entire
programme for a week so that he could rest, it was in vain.

It also leaves producers of the show back at square one in terms of
numbers with five famous faces being forced to withdraw this series
alone, with no more back-ups available to call upon.

A source said: "It's just utter carnage this year.

"There's injuries left right and centre, and COVID on top of that.No one could have foreseen this level of drop outs."

The latest withdrawal comes after show favourite Joe-Warren Plant and
partner Vanessa Bauer were forced to quit after they both tested
positive for coronavirus.

Bosses are now planning to invite them back to fill the void.
Before that, West End star Denise Van Outen had to withdraw due to a
broken shoulder.

Towie’s Billie Shepherd quit after a heavy fall on the ice, and Rufus
Hound was booted after also testing positive for coronavirus for a
second time.

Coronation Street actress Faye Brookes, 33, is now the bookies
favourite to triumph.
