Dancing On Ice’s Lady Leshurr says she’s ‘gutted’ so many stars have quit during ‘unlucky’ 13th series
DANCING On Ice star Lady Leshurr has said she is “gutted”so many stars have quit during the ‘unlucky’ 13th series.
Jason Donovan was the latest star to quit the turbulent series after failing to recover from a back injury.
Lady Leshurr has spoken honestly about how she thinks 13 is an “unlucky number” for Dancing On Ice after five celebrities have been forced to withdraw from the 13th series.
The rapper, 32, is one of five stars left in the competition which will resume this Sunday after stars were given a week off for recovery.
She told the MailOnline : “I can’t believe that, I’m gutted. I really loved [Jason], everybody loved him. It’s the 13th series and you know what they say, it’s an unlucky number.
“I didn’t think there would be any injuries. I came into this just straight in, I didn’t think about any repercussions. I twisted my knee and that’s currently how I am. “
Speaking as part of Sport’s Direct’s #LiftWeightDonate campaign, she added: “You have to look after your body and stretch and warm up before you go out on stage. We’ve had a whole week [off] so it’s been alright. Some people had it worse than others. It was just unfortunate about Jason.”
Meanwhile Myleene Klass has compared Dancing On Ice to the Hunger Games and said the winner will be “the last person standing” on the brutal show.
The presenter, 42, who was the first person to be voted off this year, spoke out as the series was plunged into further crisis with more people pulling out because of injury or testing positive for coronovirus.
Myleene has predicted the winner of the ITV competition will be the “last person standing” after five celebrities had to leave the programme early due to injury or testing positive for coronavirus.
Comparing the show to the hit film franchise where Katniss Everdeen fights for her life, mum-of-three Myleene told HELLO! magazine: “It was pretty brutal.
“I thought I was signing up to learn to dance on ice, but it was like ‘The Hunger Games’.”
Asked she thought would win this year’s series, she said: “The person I tip to win will be the last person standing.”
It comes as The Sun revealed Dancing On Ice bosses could be forced to cut this series short – unless axed stars are brought back.

There are five more shows yet to air – with only five remaining celebrities in the competition.
It’s now impossible for three stars to compete in the final.
It could mean producers will have to end the series early after running out of replacements.
But fans are hopeful that actor Joe-Warren Plant could make a return to the show.
He was forced to pull out after testing positive for coronavirus.
Other stars to drop out included Jason Donavan, Billie Faiers, Rufus Hound, and Denise Van Outen was forced to leave the show after a painful arm injury.
A source told The Sun: “It’s just utter carnage this year.
“There’s injuries left right and centre, and Covid on top of that. No one could have foreseen this level of drop outs.”
