She previously discussed her injury with The Sun on Sunday, saying she has “taken a few tumbles since we started training but with this one I knew immediately it wasn’t good”.

“Straightaway I knew I’d done something. I just thought, ‘Please don’t let it be a break’,” she added.

“The on-site medics and physio checked me over immediately and my shoulder was quickly iced.”

Sunday’s launch episode is scheduled to feature a performance by van Outen alongside five of the other 12 contestants.

Actors Jason Donovan and Joe-Warren Plant, comedian Rufus Hound, media personality Rebekah Vardy and rapper Lady Leshurr are set to perform.

According to bookmaker Ladbrokes actress Faye Brookes, who is scheduled to perform next week, is the favourite to win the competition.

Dancing On Ice airs at 6pm on Sunday on ITV.
