Injury toll rises to five

Ulrika Jonsson has become Dancing On Ice’s fifth casualty.

The former weather girl, 39, injured her spine while attempting a daring back-flip during training for the ITV1 show.

Contestants Clare Buckfield, Lisa Scott-Lee and Emily Symons have already broken ribs while Kay Burley has suffered severe bruising.

A friend of Ulrika’s tells The Sun: ‘It was a daunting move but she bravely agreed to do it. Unfortunately she didn’t manage to pull it off and heard a crunching sound as she hit the ice.’

We feel sorry for you, girls, but frankly we’re not surprised. If we stay upright for one lap of the local ice rink it’s an achievement.
