Brian McFadden in horror fall just ahead of Dancing On Ice debut

He's been left understandably anxious

Brian McFadden suffered a bad fall just before his Dancing On Ice debut.

The former Westlife singer is due to take to the ice on Sunday (13.01.19) for his first performance in the ITV competition but his professional partner Alex Murphy has revealed that a fall during the week has left him feeling anxious.

She told The Sun Online: "We had a fall, it was pretty bad.

"He was really anxious after that but I told him not to worry and hopefully it's out of his system."

However, Alex believes he has nothing to worry about and she can't wait for him to show off his skills on the ice.

She said: "He has come on drastically from when he first started and could hardly stand on the ice.

"He's also lost weight from all the training, but he doesn't think so because he still eats burgers."

Brian's fall comes after fellow competitor Melody Thornton admitted she has had a number of accidents during rehearsals, including smashing her face on the ice.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer said: "The worst for me is there's a little bitty part of the blade in the back of your skate that if you put your other skate on top of that and then move an inch, you will just fall out of nowhere.

"It's like getting shot. It's crazy.

"I was trying to put one foot behinds the other and I stepped on my blade and went backwards flying but landed on my face.

"It was so intense. You immediately want to cry. It's like when you're a kid and you can't help it.

"I've fallen on my hips and things and the bruising is like 'wow, OK'."
