Gemma Collins has revealed what caused her fall on Dancing on Ice.
The GC took to the ice at the end of her Celine Dion skate two weeks ago – leaving her with a shocking injury on her knee which meant she couldn’t skate for two days.
It turned out the fall was caused by a reason other than what her partner Matt Evers said, as he suggested Gemma blacked out and hit the ice in a surprising moment.
But Gemma has revealed the truth – and it’s far simpler than that.

She told Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "Being the nearly pro skater that I am, and looking back at the footage at the time, I was like, ‘What the hell has happened?’
"Watching it back in a calm stage of mind… I just got over-excited and when you’re performing in ice skating you have to keep your movements small, they say you have to stay in the tube.
"But I got so excited I was out of that tube and it just went horribly, horribly wrong.
"I was thinking, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, this is over for me, I’m done."

Susanna then wanted to work out exactly what happened with Gemma – and why her skating partner said she blacked out on the ice before the tumble.
She explained: "When is on to Matt after I said I felt like I blacked out and he said, ‘When you’re called an athlete, you go into this zone and you almost do have a sort of a blackout, because you’re in performance mode.’
"I was in excruciating pain but I was so embarrassed, I had to get up and put a brave face on it."

At this, Piers continued to leap to her defence and tell her how much he admired her decision to keep going despite her injury, which set her back for days in the following week of rehearsals.
Dancing on Ice airs Sundays at 6pm and Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
