Professional skater Yebin Mok has said her leg is feeling “so much better” after she was injured during training for Dancing On Ice.

It was revealed on Wednesday that while she was preparing for the ITV show with former Olympic skier Graham Bell her leg was lacerated from a stab wound caused by an ice blade.

Bell will skate alone in the group number during the first episode of the new series of the skating competition on Sunday while Mok recovers.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Mok said her leg’s condition is improving.

Alongside a photo of some flowers, she wrote: “Started my rehab exercises, eating nutrient dense foods for wound healing, visualising muscle healing and I’m so pleased to say my leg is feeling so much stronger!”

Mok added: “Thank you for all the lovely messages and get well wishes!

“Everyone is giving me such positive energies and it’s definitely carrying me through. So thank you!”
