Kem Cetinay was rehearsing with Alex Murphy on Friday when it all went horribly wrong and she ‘badly damaged’ her ankle.

Alex is said to only have a 50/50 chance of being fit enough to perform on the live show this evening.

A source told the Daily Star: “This is a nightmare for Kem and Alex. They’d worked really hard on their routine for this week’s show but now everything is hanging in the balance. It’s 50/50 whether she’ll be able to perform.”

According to reports, Dancing On Ice producers lined up a ‘reserve skater’ to work with Kem but now they’re thinking about letting them bypass tonight’s performance completely by ‘fast-tracking the pair to next week’s show’.

The news of Alex’s injury comes just days after reports that a selection of contestants have been hit by the flu.

Lemar, Kem and Donna Air are said to be “racing against time” to be well enough to perform this weekend.

A source revealed this week: “It’s a race against time to get fit again ahead of this weekend’s show.

“Not a day goes by when there isn’t someone else being laid low. It has never happened this bad on the show, especially as it happened at the start of the show too.”

Dancing On Ice continues tonight on ITV at 6PM.
