Sam Attwater admits drunken injury after Dancing On Ice victory

Dancing On Ice champion Sam Attwater has admitted his celebrations were a bit too spirited, after he drunkenly injured his back and hamstring doing the splits.

The former EastEnders actor skated to victory with partner Brianne Delcourt on Sunday's final, after impressing Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean with their version of the Bolero.

But Sam's victory celebrations ended painfully, after he decided to show off his new-found skills on the dance floor.

Sam and Brianne opened the final by performing a routine to Footloose, and when the song came on during the show's after-party an inebriated Sam couldn't resist launching into the splits – but ended up pulling his hamstring and hurting his back.

'I was drinking Jack Daniel's and Coke and then after four of those someone offered me a shot,' Sam told The Sun.

'We drank and partied a lot, then Footloose came on and Vanilla Ice was filming it all.

'I was so excited I jumped into this double jazz splits thing and now my hamstring has gone and my back hurts. I was probably more injured from that.'

Sam was already in bad shape after a nasty injury to his ribs last week left him needing heavy strapping and painkillers to get him through the final.

But despite his new injuries, Sam has assured fans he will still be able to skate during the Dancing On Ice tour.

Meanwhile,  runner-up Laura Hamilton has revealed she had been carrying a nasty ankle injury during the last few weeks of the competition.

Laura posted a photo of her heavily swollen ankle on her Twitter page, with the caption 'the ankle I've been hiding away...'

The former Nickelodeon presenter revealed her ankle has had to be strapped up for about six weeks, but said she hadn't wanted to draw attention to her injury during the show.
