Ryan Sidebottom has been ruled out of this weekend’s Dancing On Ice due to injury.
The cricketer has been told to miss the show on medical grounds as a result of a Grade I adductor strain.
As a result he will receive a bye to next weekend’s show.
Everyone at the show wishes him a speedy recovery.
Meanwhile, Ryan was recently pictured with his new married girlfriend.
The former England cricketer’s new love, Maddie Costigan, is still living with her husband and son in their £500,000 home, it was recently revealed.
“We’re not divorced yet but still live together," the 37-year-old told The Sun.

But the difficult situation doesn’t seem to have dampened Ryan’s affections, with the smitten couple spotted strolling through a park with their arms wrapped around each other on Tuesday.
And while she’s got no plans to move in with Ryan, the events manager did confirm that she and her estranged husband Sean are in the process of selling the family home.
"I’m gutted we’re losing the house but I’m moving nearby. I’m just happy to be near my little boy. Ryan and I have no plans to move in together," she continued.

The couple started dating following the end of Ryan’s nine-year marriage to ex-wife Kate in 2017 – the same year he retired from cricket.
