Billie Faiers has admitted she’s “gutted” as she’s forced to quit Dancing On Ice due to a head injury.

The former TOWIE star fell during rehearsals on Friday and obtained a concussion, and has since pulled out of the competition. 

Taking to Instagram following the news, the Mummy Diaries star shared a snap with her skating pro Mark Hanretty, who she branded “a friend for life”.

She wrote: “Our first and last dance 💔⛸ I am so so sad that our @dancingonice journey has come to an end after an accident in rehearsals on Friday causing me a head injury, forcing us out of the competition 😔”

“@markhanretty A true friend for life, you have been the most incredible partner throughout all of this, I mean you taught me to skate for one 😆.”

“Thank you for being so kind, supportive, patient, understanding, and thank you for being such a happy, positive person when I needed it the most 💔.”

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks personally for me and coming back to skating this week has really been a great distraction❤️,” Billie added, following the death of her grandmother last week.

“I am so so gutted we can’t perform tonight, we worked so so hard on this week’s routine 😔 However, although it has sadly been cut short , being part of @dancingonice has been the best experience.”

“I have met some wonderful people and I actually feel quite proud of myself that I pushed myself so far out of my comfort zone and faced some of my biggest fears 🥰.”

“I’m going to miss being part of this incredible show so much 💔 I wish all of the rest of cast so much luck and I will be cheering you all on every Sunday, you are all amazing !!! 🌟✨ 🙌🏻👏🏼⛸🎉❤️”

“Thank you to everyone for your kind messages and support throughout all of this ❤️ It means so much to me and I am so grateful ❤️,” Billie concluded the post. 

Denise Van Outen also left the show earlier after an injury, while Rufus Hound was forced to quit after contracting Covid-19.

Dancing On Ice continues tonight at 6pm on Virgin Media One.
