Rebekah Vardy accidentally put her 'Dancing on Ice' partner in hospital.
The 38-year-old model was left mortified when she sliced open Andy Buchanan's face with her ice skates during training for the upcoming series of the skating competition.
She said: "I seem to be the only one who’s ended up hurting my pro, putting him in hospital. I do apologise. No, it was awful; I think I’ve just come to terms with scarring his face.”
The pair were rehearsing a new routine for their ITV debut when Rebekah caught the ice skater's face with her blade.
She explained: "We were practising a trick and we changed it slightly from something that we would normally do – and we did it on a daily basis and everything would go right and nothing would go wrong. "On this occasion, it went very wrong and the back of my heel and my blade sliced his face open."
The former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' star – who is married to footballer Jamie Vardy – was worried she had badly injured her dancing partner, but Andy was determined to get back on the ice.
She said: "He was fine. All he was concerned about was making sure that he could skate the next day, where I was not interested in that in the slightest, I just wanted to make sure that he was OK. "It was quite scary. But it brings back the realisation that what we’re doing is really bloody dangerous, but he’s fine. It’s a bit dramatic but he’s OK."
