Gemma Collins has been a controversial addition to this year's Dancing On Ice - but there's no denying she's also trying hard.

Taking to InstaStories on Saturday night, the 37-year-old TOWIE star told fans: "The night before Dancing On Ice, I had another fall today.

I fell again yesterday - my knees - I was SCREAMING.

"I'm in absolute agony, I've been crying like I don't know what."

The next morning she nearly fell yet again while filming a video, shrieking as she climbed some steps and shouting: "Oh help me up, I don't need to fall anymore, not before the big performance tonight. Guys, I'm hanging onto the handrail."

He later also confirmed to The Sun she was in a wheelchair, saying: "She’s in so much pain. The swelling around her thighs and knees is horrific, and she’s black and blue all over.

"She's struggling to walk so I had to carry her to the car earlier, and she's been using Joan's wheelchair on and off all day because she's in so much pain."

On Saturday Gemma - who is partnered with pro skater Matt Evers - revealed she was visiting a "top physio" to help with her injuries. Last week, she also confirmed: "Since doing Dancing On Ice I've got a torn rotator cuff and something's happened to my knees."
