Matthew Wolfenden was shaken up after dropping his professional skating partner Nina Ulanova while training for 'Dancing On Ice'

Matthew Wolfenden has been left shaken up after dropping his professional partner while training for 'Dancing On Ice'.

The 'Emmerdale' star had a "shocker" at rehearsals after he accidentally dropped skater Nina Ulanova - who was left winded - on the ice when they practiced a big lift as part of their routine for Sunday's (22.01.12) show.

Matthew - who suffered tendon damage earlier this week while training for the ITV1 programme - wrote on twitter: "Had a shocker of a training session today!.....Dropped @NinkaUlanova out of a big lift that's in our new routine, she's just a bit winded...but it shook me up a lot, just shows how dangerous this ice skating can be!

"She's a little hard nut though! (sic)"

Despite the incident, Nina continued with the training session and later insisted she never gives up.

She wrote: "Great session with @MrMattWolfenden some nice lifts in! Dangerous? Yes! But I love it! Give up not in my dictionary! (sic)"

Following the accident, fellow 'Dancing On Ice' contestant Heidi Range tweeted Matthew to check if the actor and Nina were OK.

In reply to the Sugababes singer, he tweeted: "thanks love, I'm ok, it was @ninkaulanova who took the brunt of the fall! She was fine though. Shook me up though! M (sic)"
