Wolfenden's painful prop gaffe

Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden injured himself with his prop

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."

If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
