DENISE Van Outen could return to Dancing On Ice next year after a horror injury forced her to leave the show, pro-skater Matt Evers has told The Sun.
Fans were left devastated by the premature exit, begging for her to make a comeback in the 2022 series.
In an exclusive chat with The Sun, 44-year-old Matt has confirmed that this is a definite possibility, and he’d “love” to join the 46-year-old star on the ice next year instead.
He told us: “There’s been a lot of comment online for ‘Denise and Matt 2022’, they have never really done that before.
“At this stage we are just looking at next week, but there is a lot of support for Denise to do the show again next year. I would love that.
“That’s because I get along with Denise so well, we just laughed so much.”
Last year, Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing reached the Strictly Come Dancing final after he was forced to drop out of the 2019 series when he badly injured his foot during training before the show launch.
Dancing On Ice have pulled a similar move once before, with 2008 contestant Michael Underwood 財神捕魚returning in 2009 after he broke his leg during the first set of training, which had forced him to pull out before the live shows.
Matt held on to hope as he referenced Michael’s experience, explaining: “The last person to return was Michael Underwood. He broke his leg in rehearsal prior to the show starting but he did come back the next year, because he never made the live show. Now I don’t know if th真人娛樂at would even be on the cards.”
He added: “Denise lives by the motto it is what it is, what will be will be… So who knows?”
Earlier this week, Denise admitted that she was “gutted” to pull out of Dancing On Ice after she dislocated her shoulder ahead of the first live show earlier this month.
The star was left in agony but powered through the launch, however, an MRI scan later showed that her injury was much more severe and she had actually fractured her arm in three places too.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Denise財神娛樂城 told us how she vomited from pain after her and Matt’s live performance.
She explained: “With an injury like this it is too dangerous to go back on. I didn’t want to end up on a surgeon’s table with pins.
“I obviously didn’t know at the time that it was fractured as well, but now it all makes sense because of the level of pain.
“I came off after that show and vomi線上娛樂城ted, and I nearly passed out because I was in so much pain.
“At the same time it was still good to be part of it. It’s just such a shame. I would love to have carried on. I’ll never ever know what I’d be capable of doing.”
