Gemma Collins struggles with knee injury in sneak peek at Dancing on Ice rehearsals

Gemma Collins has been seen struggling with a knee injury in rehearsals for Dancing on Ice .

The GC sadly collapsed onto the ice last week, which she later said came after a "blackout" which she believes came from low blood sugar, after she spent time linked up to a heart monitor before her dance.

It left her with a damaged knee, and her boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Argent was snapped pushing her around in a wheelchair.

But nothing will hold her down, as she has been seen back on the ice with her partner Matt Evers and ready to combat the snow.

  • Gemma Collins’ Dancing On Ice fall pay day revealed – and she’s set for big money

On Good Morning Britain, a preview shot of her skating was shown, where she talked about how her injuries were causing her problems.

As Matt told her what to do for their routine, Gemma said: "I can do it more, but I can’t push down too heavy on that knee."

Later, Matt was seen trying to spin Gemma around, but she struggled to do this and was given further instructions from Matt, who told her to move further away rather than too close.

During this move she even slightly stumbled, meaning her knee weakness may continue to cause her issues, and possibly even another fall.

Gemma was then seen doing another move, for which Matt congratulated her as she held his hand and moved in a circle, which looked pretty seamless.

  • Gemma Collins WAS cleared by medics before Dancing On Ice face-plant

The TOWIE star took Monday off to recover, but Matt revealed she had a choreography session with Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean on Tuesday and rehearsed with him on Wednesday.

After some viewers accused her of "faking the fall", Gemma tried to claim she "blacked out" moments before the incident.

She said: "It definitely wasn’t faked, one million per cent. If they knew the pain I am in with my knee, they would understand.

"I didn’t fall, I passed out. I was just going and then, next thing, on the ground. What is scary is my teeth could have been smashed out.

"It was so weird. I don’t think I tripped, I think I blacked out."

Gemma claimed a show medic advised her not to skate after she complained of chest pains in the run-up to her performance.

However, a Dancing On Ice spokesperson insisted that no one skates without medical clearance: "The safety and welfare of our contestants is of primary concern to us and no one performs on the ice without medical clearance."

Dancing on Ice airs on Sunday at 6pm and Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
