Shame to hear about his accident but at least we won't have Todd Carty number two

Catwoman: "For one if I was a bloke, I would not flirt with you two. I have standards."
Toots: "If I had a figure like Ola's, I'd wear that outfit to Sainsburys!"

Keith Chegwin crashes out of Dancing On Ice

Icey what you did wrong there Cheggers ... Keith drops out of competition


Published: 27th October 2011

TELLY star Keith Chegwin crashes out of Dancing On Ice — after an agonising accident on the rink.

The presenter broke three ribs and fractured his shoulder during his first rehearsal for the ITV show.

He was rushed to hospital by paramedics — and has now been ruled out of the new series, which starts in January.

Our sequence of pictures shows how Keith took his tumble.

Horrified skating stars Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean watched as he did a lap of the ice, then took a dramatic dive.

Keith, 54, told TV Biz: "Torvill and Dean put a speed gun on me as I skated round. I got up to 15 miles per hour, turned left on the rink and then... bang!

Skate expectations ... Keith Chegwin

"I couldn't breathe or talk. I had fractured my shoulder and later found out I'd broken three ribs.

"I am in a film at the moment called Kill Keith and it felt like they were trying to kill me! But Chris was brilliant. He called everything to a halt. He and Jayne were fantastic. I was in awe of them anyway. It was like a private session with God. I ended up having four MRI scans and Chris has given me his personal physio."

Crash course ... Keith Chegwin
Gutted Cheggers admitted: "It has really dashed my hopes.

"I was so excited about doing the show and I can't now.

"But I'm on the mend and I can still do my panto in Swindon."

Cheggers Plays drop ... Keith
Keith, who became a household name in the 70s with kids' quiz Cheggers Plays Pop, has his arm in a sling after the crash at the Lea Valley Ice Rink in East London.

Jayne said: "It's such a shame to lose him. His enthusiasm was infectious."

Christopher added: "Keith is such a great character who had bundles of potential."

Show host Phillip Schofield said: "We've broken a major celebrity."
