Connor Ball details all of his injuries after Dancing On Ice

Connor Ball has revealed about his fear that he could suffer permanent damage from his nasty wound in Dancing On Ice.

The Vamps musician, 26, suffered a horrific injury during a skating competition when the tongue of his shoe stabbed his foot, causing him to bleed as he and his professional partner Alexandra Schauman performances.

And now he has revealed that he still has pain in his leg and loss of feeling after the incident.

Speaking six months after the injury, the bassist admitted he still had a big scar and insisted he was “always injured” these days despite undergoing physical therapy sessions.

He said Sun : “I’m always injured. I still have scars, and my leg is pretty amputated. I can’t feel half of my shin.

“I was so stressed and they said it might come back, or maybe never.”

His terrifying injury had the effect of deterring band member Tristan Evans, after the drummer admitted he was no longer interested in starring in the popular ITV series.

Tristan said: “I actually went ice skating with Connor a little while ago and he almost broke my neck.

“I was using one of those kids’ penguins to keep you upright and he went crazy and then he lunged at me. I tripped and… ouch. We heard a click and that was my neck.”

Following his injury, Connor regularly updates his fans on social media about his healing progress.

Shortly after the incident, he told his 818k Instagram followers that the images he was sharing were not meant to be “offensive”.

He wrote at the time: “What a crazy night I really got into the whole pirate thing. Thank you guys for all the messages I really appreciate, i totally feel sad about this routine but so grateful you guys are still totally crazy and voted me through I can’t thank you enough!!

“Again, an accident that never happened during practice makes things worse for me but will put it in the past and get back to practice ASAP!!

“A big thank you to the whole team for bringing me back together as always and supporting everything, it really means a lot. So much love. X.”

Connor and The Vamps are currently in the midst of their latest tour to mark their 10th year as a band – and they don’t want to give it all up just yet.

Commenting on how the band members have remained friends over the years, Connor continued: “We really are still strangely good friends. These are my boys and my friendships with fellows. Your career is hard to find. We may hate each other, but we don’t.”
