Boy band star Connor Ball suffered a hip injury that didn’t go away, doctors repeatedly repositioned his shoulder as he dislocated, and then a nasty cut in his leg and a scar on his chin.
It’s a bit of a surprise that he’s been labeled a “walking injury” and unfortunately, Connor fears tonight’s performance could be the deadliest.
And it’s not just The Vamps singer who’s been to wars, his Dancing on Ice teammate Alexandra Schauman also needs treatment after slitting her finger on the tongue of her shoe.
However, Connor, 25, believes that may just be the tip of the iceberg as tomorrow night he will face a whole new challenge – props week.

Each famous face is given different items they must have in their routine and the Scottish singer has warned this could lead to some somersaults on the ice.
“I got hurt while walking!” he admitted. “It’s really empowering to have props. Pressure is on. I can imagine there’s going to be some serious mishaps on the ice this weekend, it’s been really tough.
“We were given a mop and a bucket. I fell a lot and because I couldn’t put my hands down to protect myself, I hit my elbows a lot.
Connor is no stranger to an uproar when he admits “life flashed before his eyes” when in 2014 he famously fell off the stage while opening for Taylor Swift at the O2 in London.
This isn’t the only time he’s tripped while playing with The Vamps. Indeed, some fans have even posted montages of all his misadventures.
“Most of the time when I try to do something difficult,” he laughs.
“But with the Taylor show, it was stupid. I just walked off the stage, and fell on my back 7ft, with the security guard looking down at me! “
However, as Connor well knew the show had to go on and he dusted off and returned, just like he did in week three of Dancing on Ice, when he smacked his chin for a split second before falling before prepare to open the live show. .

He didn’t realize at the time that he had dislocated his shoulder, too, but he managed to push through the habit, albeit while bleeding on the ice.
“The adrenaline carried me through that night, I wasn’t even anaesthetic when they sewed my chin together,” he said.
Last weekend, fans watched Connor and Alexandra hit the ice once again, ruining their previously perfect Musical Week process with Stars from Les Misérables.
They scored 32.5 out of 40, but he knew they could do better.
“Honestly, I still feel really gutted about it,” Connor said.
“We don’t know what happened, we rewatched it so many times and we both couldn’t figure out why we fell, it was weird.
“We were called the most injury-prone pair on the show.
“Need someone to wrap us in bubble wrap! I think we definitely terrified our friends and family for a few weeks as well.
“ITV is really getting their money’s worth from the medical team with us.”
Connor joined the Vamps at the age of 16 in 2012. But the one person who has been with him through all the thrills and breakdowns recently is girlfriend of three years Lucee Moore, who works in television.

She comes to the show every week and even helps practice his DOI lifts in their pool.
The so-called curse is definitely not a problem for him. This time, he dropped his head over his heels, in a good way.
Connor said: “There was never a part of me that thought the curse on the show could be a thing because I love my girlfriend so much and she’s never worried either.
“We certainly talked about marriage and children but we thought about it for a few years. It would be nice to live together and figure out each other’s strange habits and habits first! ”
