Enmmerdale hunk Matthew Wolfenden is said to be nursing an eye-watering injury after a whip routine for Dancing On Ice went wrong.

The soap star was given the prop for this Sunday night's circus-themed show, in which he will play a lion tamer.

But The Sun reports that Matthew was forced to take a break from the rink after accidentally whipping his groin area during rehearsals.

A source revealed: "The whip's quite long and he accidentally caught himself between the legs. It would have been all right if it had happened just once, but after three times he was in serious pain."

Remaining contestants Chico, Jennifer Ellison, Jorgie Porter and Chemmy Alcott will also be skating with props.

Ski racer Chemmy is clearly enjoying her magician routine, which will see her skate with a rope, cards and a cane.

She told Twitter followers: "Very excited love my prog and prop and partner."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
