Gemma Collins will miss Dancing on Ice rehearsals today after suffering horrific injuries after fall

The Towie star was in agony after her knees were 'banged up' following her crash on the ice during last night's show.

Gemma will skip Dancing on Ice rehearsals today to recover after suffering horrific injuries following her fall.

Her dance partner Matt Evers told The Sun Online: "Gemma will miss rehearsals today, and we'll see how she is tomorrow.

"Her knees were banged up, she was in a really bad way.

"She had an ice pack on her knee at dinner with Arg and friends until midnight."

Matt,who is always partnered with the show's biggest signings from Pamela Anderson to Denise Welch and Jorgie Porter, revealed what happened directly after the fall when Gemma, 37,  was rushed off stage to paramedics.

Matt said: "Gemma was really upset, we hugged it out. She felt she had let me down, but not at all. She was a true star the way she picked herself up and finished the routine."

Speaking about what caused the painful crash, he said: "She was wearing a longer dress which is harder to skate in. But after I watched it back I saw she caught the toe pick –  the spiky bit at the front of the boot, on the ice –  and that sent her flying.

"Paramedics checked her wrists and chest to give her the all clear and put an ice pack on her knees for 20 minutes. She banged her knees really bad, but she knew she had to do the skate off and was determined to do it still."

Matt added: "To all those people who said she staged it, that is just ridiculous. If she had, she's in the wrong show. She should be a stunt woman. That's just the furthest from the truth.

After she calmed down she joked:  'Do you know what, that's TV gold.' "

Gemma thanked her fans on Instagram and wrote alongside a clip of her fall: "Absolutely devastated & embarrassed. My heart is broken ❤️ but when I went down I thought of @gypsyking101 Tyson Fury and knew I had to get back up & carry on! Can’t thank you enough for your support on social media and picking up the phone to vote! I'm in a lot of pain but bring on fantasy week!!! "
