Dancing On Ice's Denise Van Outen hits out at 'frustrating' scoring claiming other celebs had secret 'advanced training'

DANCING On Ice's Denise Van Outen hit out at "frustrating" scoring and claimed other celebs had secret "advanced training".

The presenter, 46, was forced to leave the competition last month after suffering an injury on the ice.

But Denise says herself and Myleene Klass – who was the first person eliminated – were judged to harshly as they'd never skated before.

She told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "I found it quite frustrating because I’d never done it before – and Myleene hadn’t either.

“We got quite low scores and were compared to others in the competition who had a lot of experience.

"That’s a bit difficult. I was like, ‘I can’t do any more, I only learned to skate two months ago’.”


The star also claimed others had "advance training" before getting on the rink.

She added: “A lot of people in the competition have trained a lot and had coaching but I think it’s quite obvious to see from home.

“You can see who’s had advanced training because they’re the ones doing all the tricks and lifts and skating on their own.

“We were two mums just giving it a go. It was like, ‘We’ve never done it before!’”

Earlier this week Denise revealed had to skate for 15 hours with her fractured and dislocated shoulder.

Denise made efforts to continue in the show, even singing live for audiences at home – but the pain proved too much for her and sadly had to resign from the series.

Discussing her recovery on today's Loose Women, she told the panellists: "I partially dislocated it.

"Unfortunately after the rehearsal I spent 15 hours with my shoulder being dislocated because we didn’t really want to bother the NHS knowing that they’re so overstretched.

"It wasn't until the pain was so unbearable that they advised that I went in to see them and then they put my shoulder back in, but then it popped out again and then I skated on it in the most excruciating pain, I cannot tell you.

"And then after that had an MRI and it was fractured in three parts, so I've got three fractures and a dislocation."

The former Big Breakfast host also explained why she decided to go ahead and perform in week one with her skating partner Matt Evers despite her injury.

The Towie narrator added: "I didn’t want to let Matt down because I love him to bits."
