Denise Van Outen forced to pull out of Dancing on Ice after breaking her shoulder in three places

TV star Denise Van Outen was tonight forced to pull out of Dancing on Ice — as scans showed three breaks in her shoulder.

The host and West End performer, 46, told today how her partial dislocation has now been diagnosed as something more severe, forcing her from the show. 

Insiders suggest her replacement is likely to be former Olympic gymnast Amy Tinkler, 21 — who they say might win it.

She has been training with pro partner Joe Johnson in case a contestant has to pull out due to Covid infection.

Denise posted: “I’ve tried as hard as I can to carry on. But a recent MRI has shown I have 3 bone fractures as well as a partial dislocation. No wonder I’ve been in agony.”

Skate partner Matt Evers, 44, told The Sun she wanted to carry on “for her daughter Betsy” but bosses said it was not safe. 

The Sun told earlier this month how Denise fell in training, before battling her pain for the first show.
