Dancing On Ice’s The Vivienne in horror fall leaving final skate in jeopardy

Dancing On Ice finalist The Vivienne has suffered a nightmare fall right before she takes to the ITV rink for her final skate.

The RuPaul's Drag Race UK champ is hoping to add another win to her list, but she may have jeopardised her chances after injuring her knee again.

The drag queen – real name James Lee Williams – had been working to get her final routines perfect when she slammed down hard on the ice.

Viv landed on the same knee that she had injured when falling during last weekend's semi-finals, to make matters worse.

The fall resulted in rehearsals being cut as worried medics quickly checked her over.

A source told The Sun: "Injuries are to be expected this far into the competition but Viv's knee is turning into a bit of a nightmare.

"Thursday's rehearsal was going really well up until she lost her balance and her knee buckled while trying to perfect her routine.

"She hit the ice hard and landed like she did on last week's show – going down on the same knee."

It turned out alright though, as the publication reports that Viv was fine and was just instructed to rest up and apply ice to help with any pain or swelling.

However there is still the fear that the recurring injury could make the finale harder for Viv – especially if something happens again.

Last weekend, The Vivienne fell on the rink during her performance but, ever the pro, quickly got back up and carried on the routine.

She said after the performance: "My knees are hurting a bit, but I'm fine. We're dancing on ice, things happen."

Host Phillip Schofield agreed, adding: "That's live skating for you!"

The Viv will skate against TOWIE icon Joey Essex and gymnast Nile Wilson in the final.
