Dancing On Ice coaches reveal real reason Gemma Collins fell amid ‘fake’ claims

The Dancing On Ice judges have revealed the reason they believe Gemma Collins fell over during her live performance.

The TOWIE star shocked viewers on Sunday night’s show when she fell face first onto the ice towards the end of her routine.

Brave Gemma immediately got back to her feet and finished her performance, but was left in tears and in agony backstage.

Some viewers are not convinced the fall was genuine and have accused The GC of ‘faking’ it – with a slowed down video appearing to back the theory.

Speaking on today’s This Morning, former contestant Kem Cetinay explained what the judges had told him behind-the-scenes.
