Singer Chesney Hawkes has withdrawn from Dancing on Ice after sustaining an injury to his leg whilst training for the current series.

The One and Only singer was practising basic skating steps with professional partner Jodeyne Higgins when he took a tumble suffering a severe ankle sprain and fractured fibula.

Hawkes was seen by medics before the Dancing on Ice physio refused to sign him off to return to the rink. Former - X Factor contestant Chico will be taking his place on the new series.

Chesney said: “I am gutted not to be taking part in Dancing on Ice. I was having a brilliant time and couldn’t wait to finally be skating live on national TV!

“It wasn’t even a spectacular fall, it was a slight stumble as I practiced with my skating partner. I think my children are the most disappointed they were so excited at the prospect of watching me skate.

“I’m determined to be back on the ice, I might not be able to appear in this series but hoping I will be able to appear in the show next year!”

Chico added: “Whilst I'm really excited about being part of the new series of Dancing on Ice it's not necessarily in the best of circumstances.

“I wish Chesney all the best and a speedy recovery. I will not just be skating for myself I will be skating for Chesney as well and do him proud.”

Hawkes is not the only one to be injured in training, according to reports.

Sugababes singer Heidi Range was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken wrist, but it was her professional skating partner Sylvain Longchambon who appears to come off worst with a torn bicep.

Jennifer Ellison has had her leg strapped up in hospital after twisting her kneecap while trying to do the splits, and EastEnders' actress Laila Morse has torn muscles in her shoulder but is postponing surgery on it so that she can still appear in the show.

Keith Chegwin was forced to pull out of the show months ago after breaking his collarbone in his first ever practice session.

The new series of Dancing on Ice starts on Sunday 8 January at 6.30pm on ITV1 - - Telegraph -

It's Chico time! I don't mind him, he's a bit cheesy but I watched him on celebrity flight attendant or summat and he was really nice

What a shame...I hope Chico has some potential

I think Chico can dance.   He's a bit cheesy, and isn't much cop as a singer, but seems like a good guy.

I agree - he always seems like a really nice guy on anything I've seen him on. 

I'm sure his was the last series of X Factor I watched.  Not sure how long ago that was.

Chico has some dance in him and has better upper body strength I would imagine, lets just hope he can skate.
