Brian McFadden’s future on ITV’s Dancing on Ice has been left in doubt following an injury in rehearsals.

Here’s what happened to Brian McFadden and the full extent of his injury.

What happened to Brian McFadden on Dancing on Ice 2019?

Brian McFadden suffered a painful shoulder injury during rehearsals on Saturday, January 12 ahead of his first Dancing on Ice live performance.

Dancing on Ice is due to air on ITV at 6pm on Sunday, January 13 and McFadden was scheduled to perform with partner Alex Murphy for the first time.

An ITV spokesperson revealed the singer has “partially dislocated his shoulder” which forced him out of rehearsals.

ITV said: “Brian had an injury today. He’s partially dislocated his shoulder and damaged his rotator cuff, he cannot rehearse anymore today.

“They are reassessing tomorrow,” ITV said, leaving McFadden’s future on the show in doubt.


Brian himself has had his say on the injury ahead of the live show, saying: "This is really frustrating for me because for a week I’ve been nervous about getting here and nervous about just doing my first dress rehearsal in the studio.

"I do it and I love it and I was so happy, so relaxed, ready to go and this stupid shoulder has literally put me right back to the start again. But now I’m nervous and I don’t know what’s gonna happen.

"It’s so annoying cause all the work I’ve put in to get here and I felt so good after the dress rehearsal I was like ‘yes I’m ready to go’ and then now to possibly not even being able to do the show because of an injury. So annoying. So frustrating. And such a stupid thing to do as well. If I’d have fallen over on my skates or something but just to have been practicing lifts and pop out a shoulder is ridiculous.

"Right now it’s not my decision it’s gonna be the physio’s decision. She’s gonna look at it in the morning and if she’s happy for me to skate then I’ll do it but we’re probably gonna have to fix a few things because there a lot of things where I lift her straight above my head so we are gonna have to alter the routine going on how my shoulder is in the morning".

While Dancing on Ice show bosses will reassess his injuries on the day of competition, healthcare providers Bupa recommend rotator cuff injuries should be treated with rest.

Bupa’s official website states: “There are a number of things that you can do to help yourself.

“Rest your shoulder as much as you can. Try not to lift heavy weights or do activities that involve lifting your arm over your head.”

Whether the injury will rule McFadden out of the entire contest is yet to be seen.


Who else will appear on Dancing on Ice 2019?
