Dancing on Ice saved her skiing career.Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the sportswoman, 39, revealed that she used the opportunity to appear on the show as "self-investment" to get back to a professional level of skiing after suffering injuries in a horror accident.Chemmy starred on the seventh season of Dancing on Ice in 2012 alongside her professional skating partner, the late Sean Rice.One year prior, the sportswoman sustained serious injuries to her leg following a horror crash that shattered her leg.After the collision at 80mph the star feared that she would never walk again let alone get back to the sport she loved.Detailing her injuries as a result of the crash, Chemmy said that she was "written off" by people in the industry.She said: "I'd been dropped by UK Sport beforehand."And not many people believe that I could get back to the sport that I love."And I really was adamant I wanted to ski race again."You know, people wrote me off," she added.However, the star jumped at the chance to star on the ITV ice-skating show as a way of getting back on to the slopes.Chemmy explained: "That gave me a chance to increase my profile, which helped me get sponsors so I could go on the tour and afford to ski again."So, you know, it was all kind of self-investment."The mother-of-two told how she took her time on the show seriously.She said: "That's almost why I probably didn't enjoy it as much as I would now because I had a goal."I needed to get to a point where I could get back to skiing, there was a purpose with it."I wasn't just a celebrity taking time out of life and having a jolly," she explained.Chemmy added that if she were to appear on the show again now she'd probably have more fun."I was quite serious about

'She always fought for us' Dancing on Ice judge Oti Mabuse credits mum for dancing career
Oti Mabuse, 31, was born in South Africa, growing up in a "really dangerous" area due to riots.The Dancing on Ice judge has credited her mother for the many "opportunities" she was offered, including even opening her own dance school as there wasn't one at the time for "Black kids".Oti had a successful career on Strictly Come Dancing, being the only professional to lift the glitterball trophy for two consecutive years.She now judges on Dancing on Ice, bringing her dancing knowledge to the talented panel.Appearing on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Oti detailed how her mother Dudu is the reason for her successful career.Oti explained how her mother wanted her to have every "opportunity" due to the "segregation" when she was a child.She said: "But also in those years, Black people weren't allowed to even be in the same room or the same dance floor as white people."This motivated Dudu to start her own dance school, as "no one was teaching Black kids how to dance" where they lived at the time.The community they grew up in was also "really dangerous", so Oti's mother started her own transport system to bring children to and from school.Growing up at her mothers dance school meant that dance was "all she saw'' and her mother kept a very strict regime which only included school, sports and dance.Oti said: "She just didn't want us to grow up and feel like we didn't have opportunities and she wanted to make sure that we were always busy so that we wouldn't have been on the streets, we weren't getting up to any mischief."She always fought for us and she taught us to fight for ourselves and not take no for an answer and be as ambitious and dedicated and competitive as we are."Oti described her mother as "amazing" and
AJ Pritchard's girlfriend Abbie and pal ‘almost killed each other' in Dancing On Ice stunt
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby gasp in horror, Abbie Quinnen opted not just to watch Dancing On Ice, but to emulate it in her bedroom.Together with a friend, she donned her roller skates and the pair tried to replicate the risky lifts."I would absolutely love to do Dancing On Ice," she enthused by way of explanation."I remember when I was younger, when Dancing On Ice was on, I would pop on my roller skates and I would dance around my room and try and do the dances myself."I actually had a friend who used to come round and we would try to do the dances and lifts ourselves."We almost killed each other, but it was so much fun."She added: "It's definitely a passion of mine and I would love to do that show for sure."Unfortunately for Abbie, however, she hasn't been on the ice rink lately.She and fellow dancer boyfriend AJ Pritchard, who was a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing for four years in a row before bowing out in 2020, had been planning to get their skates on and refresh some of their moves."We just couldn't fit it in with my pantomime," she lamented, "and I might break a leg or something."I don't fancy hurting myself any more than I did last year to be honest."Abbie is referring to a traumatic accident during which she endured horrific third-degree burns trying to replicate a perilous TikTok hack.The flames had been used for cutting a glass bottle in half to transform it into a vase, but the result was an explosion that severely harmed her face and body.However, Abbie assured Express.co.uk: "I definitely have been a lot more careful [since] with everything I do."She has struggled with the emotional impact of learning that her scars might never totally disappear, and with the discomfort of wearing a

Dancing On Ice star Brendan Cole was almost kept off the rink altogether after suffering a series of perilous falls over the weekend's rehearsals. Now he has taken to Instagram to reveal the full extent of his painful injuries."A***-ice!" Brendan Cole exclaimed to his followers."Rehabbing an ongoing injury that nearly stopped me skating on Sunday!"Thanks to the incredible @sharonmorrisonuk for keeping me and @vanessabauer_skates on the @dancingonice rink despite me trying my hardest to injure my hip by falling on it so many times."Thank you Sharon!"The star posted a photo of himself alongside the text, which excluded his face, but displayed his now worse for wear body stretched out on the sofa with an ice-pack over his bottom.He inserted the word 'Cheeky!' over the top to preserve his modesty a little more, with a peach emoji alongside it.There's no denying that Dancing On Ice has been risky in the past.Due to his inexperience, Baz of the Happy Mondays was forced to teeter nervously with shin-pads, a helmet and a variety of other protective equipment to safely survive his first week on the show.Even host Phillip Schofield has admitted to the environment being perilous, previously commenting in the Sun: "I've watched a video of Bez on his second day fall over backwards so hard that his helmet flew off."Dancing On Ice is really dangerous.
