The Vamps star Connor Ball has revealed he still can’t feel his leg after slicing it open during Dancing on Ice.
The musician reached the semi-final of Dancing on ice in 2022, but was left with a nasty injury when partner Alexandra Schauman’s blade made contact with his leg.
And Connor has now revealed the extent of the injury he suffered that required urgent medical attention on set.
‘I am always injured. I have scars, still, and my leg is pretty dead. I can’t feel half of my shin still’, he told The Sun.
‘I went through a nerve and they said it might come back, or it might never. I was having physio but I’ve finished it now.’
Connor’s bandmate, drummer Tristan Evans, also revealed that viewers are unlikely to ever see him competing in Dancing On Ice.

‘I actually went ice-skating with Connor a bit ago and he nearly broke my neck,’ he said.
‘I was using one of those kids’ penguins that keep you upright. [Connor] was going crazy and then he went for me. I tripped over and . . . ouch.’
He added: ‘We heard something click and it was my neck.’

Thankfully, both lads are going to be fit enough to take part in The Vamps’ 10th anniversary UK tour, taking place later this year.
Connor is not the first celebrity to struggle with long-term injuries after appearing on the series.
Reality TV star Gemma Collins famously fell to the ice in 2019 and later revealed that she damaged her knee in the process.
Coronation Street star Antony Cotton missed the end of the 2018 series after fracturing several ribs while training with partner Brandee Malto.
TV presenter Keith Chegwin broke three ribs and fractured his shoulder in 2012, while a year earlier rapper Vanilla Ice severely damaged his eye.
Dancing on ice is expected to return to ITV in 2023.
