Dancing On Ice's Rachel Stevens opens up on 'frustrating' injury as she misses debut
Rachel Stevens has told of her frustration at not being able to rehearse after fracturing her wrist while training for Dancing On Ice.The former S Club 7 star, 43, who sustained the injury last month, was due to be among the second batch of celebrities taking to the ice this Sunday, but ITV announced on Wednesday she will not skate due to the break.Speaking after the update, a disappointed Stevens, who is partnered with professional skater Brendyn Hatfield, said that her wrist is “healing really well” and she hopes to make her skating debut in week three of the show.She said: “I’ve had amazing advice and support from all the medical team but, unfortunately, I’ve missed a chunk of ice time, which has been frustrating."“I’m so excited to get back on, and me and Brendan have been doing everything we can off-ice, and have been working so hard so that we are fighting fit when we get back on the ice, which I can’t wait for.“I just feel so grateful to still be able to be in the show and be a part of it.”Stevens is hoping to get the all-clear from doctors so she can return to the ice this week.While she said getting hurt was “frustrating”, she accepted the threat of injury when learning to figure skate is a “risk you take”.She said: “It’s such a balance, getting to learn the basics and making sure you’re strong and you’re fit, but also pushing yourself enough that you can get out of your comfort zone.”Stevens, who finished second on Strictly Come Dancing in 2008, said that her experience as a pop star and on Strictly “definitely helps” – but feels performing on ice is an entirely new skill.She said: “I think the main thing about this show is that you’ve just got to bring yourself to this show.“And we’ve all got our different

We were safe.”Since being posted, the unusual hair cutting technique has racked up a whopping 13.9 million views and 1.3 million likes.Thousands of comments have also been made about the hair chopping antics, where many people have questioned the choice of using an axe.One person commented: “Taking “I’m going to chop off my hair” very literally.”Another user added: “I’m just thinking about all the split ends that’s gonna come.”A third person questioned: “Was…this a sober decision.”However, others saw the funny side of the very choppy hair do.One person voiced: “It grows back.
Lady Gaga: My sex scene with Salma Hayek was cut from ‘House of Gucci’
didn’t disappoint enough viewers, star Lady Gaga recently revealed that the crime drama’s overseers cut a steamy sex scene involving the pop icon and co-star Salma Hayek. The Grammy winner dropped the bombshell during a panel discussion.“There is a whole side of this film that you did not see,” divulged Gaga, 35, who plays Patricia Reggiani, a real-life swindler who was convicted of conspiring to kill her husband Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver).The “Poker Face” singer claimed that the unused footage depicted her character developing a “sexual relationship with Giuseppina ‘Pina’ Auriemm” played by Hayek, 55, who was also present on the interview panel.“I remember being on set with Selma and going ‘so….after Mauricio dies, maybe it gets hot'” recalled the New York native, to which Hayek responded, “you think she’s kidding.” Gaga also gave props to “House of Gucci” director Ridley Scott for “allowing us to go there.”And while the on-screen fling never made the film, the “A Star Is Born” actress hinted that it could be included in the “director’s cut.”However, the fan-servicing scene might not have been enough to save the fashion thriller, which The Post called “abysmal,” and holds a middling 63% fresh rating among critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
