Dancing On Ice: Max Evans’s partner hospitalised

Max Evans’ Dancing On Ice partner Ale Izquierdo was rushed to hospital after he dropped her while practising a tricky lift.

The Mexican figure-skating champion was seen clutching her head in agony and lying on her back after falling through Max’s arms while rehearsing on Saturday.

Medics told the 30-year-old to get some rest after releasing her from hospital – casting doubt over whether the couple will perform in the live show on Sunday.

   

Painful: Max Evans’ Dancing On Ice partner Ale Izquierdo was rushed to hospital after he dropped her while practising a tricky lift

Scottish rugby star Max was seen looking on in horror as Ale tumbled to the ice and lay flat on her back.

He and their aide rushed to her side to try to help her back up, before a paramedic arrived to tend to Ale – who grimaced and appeared to be in a lot of pain.   

The professional skater was taken to hospital after the fall and is now back home recovering having been told to rest for 24 hours, an ITV spokesman said. 

Max may get a pass through to next week or may have to perform with another professional skater.

Ale’s injury is the latest in a string of casualties to hit the competitors in the notoriously dangerous skating show. 

Love Island star Kem Cetinay was seen tending to a painful-looking wound on his thigh during training earlier in the week.

A representative for the star confirmed to Metro: ‘He has been injured during training – he has a cut on his leg.’ 

Meanwhile, Max and Ale have been getting on famously on the show, prompting Dancing On Ice judges to comment on their chemistry  after their romantic dance ended in an almost-kiss last week.
