Dancing on Ice’s Bez forced to wear safety gear on launch night in show first after DISASTROUS rehearsals
NINETIES icon Bez has been such a disaster in training Dancing on Ice bosses are making him wear a helmet when he performs on Sunday night.  The Happy Mondays groover, 57, will be the first celebrity ever to wear safety gear live on the ITV show.  He said: “Falling over is a daily occurrence to me.  “If I don't bang my head on the ice, I don't feel I've been doing it properly.” Photos from training have shown Bez’s helmet fly off because he struck the ice so hard. And bosses are concerned how bad his fall could be under the pressure of live TV, when the show returns on Sunday.  A show source said: “Health and safety is obviously of utmost importance and Bez has had some spectacular falls.  “While it’s all part of the show - and he does it with a smile - when his helmet flew off and he bashed his head on the ice, producers took the unusual step of asking him to perform wearing a helmet.  “It’s not ideal, actually it’s quite embarrassing for him, but Bez has taken it on the chin like a trooper.” Bez is dancing with Angela Egan, 34, who reached the final last year with Sonny Jay.  Bez said: “On Wednesday I'd made a huge step and I only fell over once, which is really good for me.  “Today, I'm hoping to get through a full session without falling.  “But I definitely have more Frank Spencer moments than any man I know.” Last year the show was forced to skip a week, and then were forced to cut the show short after seven stars were forced to drop out, including five celebrity contestants, through injury and Covid.  Australian actor Jason Donovan picked up a back injury, while Joe-Warren Plant and his partner Vanessa Bauer had to leave the series after testing positive for coronavirus.
