RUGBY’s Ace Ben Foden smacked himself in the face during a Dancing On Ice horror crash.
Athletes is swapping the playing field for an ice rink when he competes in this year’s ITV skating competition.
But training for the show, hosted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, wasn’t always planned like a preview clip.
Ben, 36, was previously paired with Canadian professional dancer, Robin Johnstone.
He was seen practicing some moves with the skater before he staggered and fell, when Robin let out a low scream.
Speaking of the shot, Ben told the camera: “Before they called my name to go out on the ice, my butterflies were going to be huge.
“I’m most worried about making myself a fool on national television.”
Ben joins a starry lineup on the show when it returns to screens later this week.
In August 2019, Ben shocked fans by revealing that he was married to New Yorker Jackie Belanoff Smith after just two weeks of “serious” dating.
Ben was previously married to singer Saturday Una Healy for six years and had two children together.
They got married on June 30, 2012, shortly after the birth of their daughter, Aoife Belle.
Son Tadhg John was born on February 2, 2015.
They have been set to move to the US where he would play for a football team in New York.
Dancing on Ice will return to ITV at 18:30 Sunday, ITV and ITV Hub.
