Phillip Schofield has revealed Holly Willoughby “almost threw up” after seeing Connor Ball’s Dancing on Ice injury in the flesh.
Connor, 25, fell while performing with his partner Alexandra Schauman last Sunday night and ended up bleeding.
The duo skated with a mop and a bucket as part of Props Week, but unfortunately Connor tripped and one of the skate’s blades cut him.
Ahead of Connor’s performance tonight, Phillip, 59, opened up about mother-of-three Holly feeling unwell.
“It’s time for a short break, but when we come back … he tripped, got stitches, he’s next.
“Last week when Holly saw his injuries she almost threw up!” he added when Holly confirmed it was true.
Phil explained that he and Holly had looked over the balcony as the paramedic tended to Connor and ended up seeing the full extent of his “gruesome” injury.
And before Connor’s taped VT was shown, Phillip told viewers, “If you’re squeamish, maybe you should look away from that.”
In the clip, Connor admitted that the paramedics stitched him up and everything was a blur as he couldn’t even remember the judges’ comments after his accident.
“I had 19 stitches in total, which I think is a Dancing on Ice record!” he added.
Luckily Connor didn’t fall over this Sunday during Torvill and Dean Week as he and Alexandra Schauman danced to Simon and Garfunkel’s Cecilia.
The duo earned an overall score of 35 and sailed through to the semifinals when Stef Reid was voted out as the last celebrity.
Connor will join Brendan Cole, Kye Whyte, Kimberly Wyatt and Regan Gascoigne in week nine of the competition – where there will be the first double elimination of the series.
Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV and the ITV Hub.
