Gemma Collins has been exposed by her own Dancing on Ice partner.
Professional skater Matt Evers revealed the shocking truth about her ‘fall’ on today’s This Morning.
Speaking live from rinkside, the American also dropped an injury bombshell ahead of Sunday night’s live show.
He told presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that Gemma is NOT wheelchair-bound after hurting her knees.
Matt said: "She’s bruised – as you can see from Instagram. She’s icing her knees. She’s back with fighting spirit. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger."

The skater explained that Gemma was using the wheelchair, in pictures exclusively revealed by the Mirror , to help her get in the car.
Matt then revealed that she is back on the ice and has been training with skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
He was also questioned on claims that Gemma ‘took a dive’ and ‘faked’ her dramatic fall last weekend.
"I’ve been skating for 30 years you would never want to fake a fall like that because it hurts," he protested.

Holly admitted she feared Gemma would have a serious facial injury and praised Matt for saving her.
He replied: "Part of my training as a pair skater as a male in the partnership, you’re taught and trained how to save the girl at any cost.
"When I saw her I saw she was close to the edge. First and foremost I had to stop her sliding into the barrier."

However, Phil questioned Gemma’s claims that she ‘blacked out’ ahead of the fall.
He said: "One thing that worried me when I read it. "I didn’t fall, I passed out’.
"I don’t think she did as she put her arms out and her eyes were open.
"That has serious implications if she is passing out on ice."

Defending Gemma’s claims, Matt said: "In high level of sport it’s called the achievement zone.
"Sometimes when you’re in the middle of the performance you have no idea what’s going on and muscle memory takes over.
"I don’t think it was a moment of blackout. She can’t remember what happened as it happened so fast and she was in an incredible performance zone."
