Dallas icon Charlene Tilton, singer Heidi Range and pop star Chesney Hawkes are among the celebrities who have suffered nasty injuries in rehearsals for Dancing On Ice.

Tilton, who will compete against stars including former child actor Corey Feldman on the show, ripped a shoulder muscle during a practise session, while Sugababes star Range was taken to hospital earlier this week.

The singer, whose professional ice skating partner Sylvain Longchambon dropped out of the series after rupturing a bicep, needed medical attention after dislocating a rib and damaging bones in her wrist.

She tells the Daily Mirror: "I had a bone come out of my wrist and it happened to my rib as well. With the rib I was doing a flying cartwheel and I heard it pop - the physio popped it back in for me. I heard it when I did my wrist, too.

"I had to go to the hospital and I was sobbing because I thought I’d be off the show. They thought it was broken but, thank God, it wasn’t."
The One and Only hitmaker Hawkes also sustained a severe leg and ankle injury, leading to concerns he may have to miss the programme's launch this weekend.
