Wes Nelson's chance of winning the Dancing On Ice final could be hanging in the balance after the Love Island star suffered a horror wrist injury today.

In clips shared on social media, Wes looked to be in top form on his last day of training before Sunday's big finale.

But the reality star, who is partnered with pro skater Vanessa Bauer, was involved in a nasty accident on the ice on Saturday, which resulted in a small bone popping out of his wrist.

The injury will be a huge blow to the reality star who recently revealed he had lost a 1.5 stone due to the gruelling training sessions.

My body is in bits, but hopefully the hard work pays off and we smash the performance this Sunday!

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he said: "This is the first week my body's started to break down completely. I've lost 10kg of muscle, it's a lot.

"But even though I've got smaller in size I think I've got stronger."

Last week, he also said he's "never trained so hard" as he urged his fans to vote for him.
