On Tuesday night, one of the show’s pro skaters Matt Evers explained on Twitter: “today this one @JakeQuickenden injured his thumb quite badly. He went to A&E, X-ray, scans, cleared and braced up. He then got straight back on the ice. Nothing is gunna stop him.”
Today this one ➡️ @JakeQuickenden injured his thumb quite badly. He went to A&E, X-ray, scans, cleared and braced up. He then got straight back on the ice. Nothing is gunna stop him. His attitude is incredible and work ethic is second to non. #believe#achieve
Then, Quickenden, while sporting a cast on ITV’s Lorraine this morning, confirmed that he had injured his thumb while filming, and added that it won’t be enough to keep him out of the final: “I dislocated my thumb yesterday. It’s a lot of fuss over nothing – it’s all precautionary. I’ll be fine, even if they had to put a pot on it, I’d still be dancing in the final.”
It’s his second injury in a week after a Storm Emma-related car crash with co-star Kem Cetinay left him with a “bit of whiplash” this past weekend.
Be careful if you’re out in the snow, had a nightmare morning, skidded going life 5mph and bumped another car that was broken down, everyone ok, but the roads are tragic so please be careful!!
