Dancing on Ice contestant Denise van Outen has given an update on her shoulder injury, which recently forced her to withdraw from the show.

Speaking on Morning Live earlier today (February 19), the star admitted she suffered "quite a bad fall", explaining she is quite concerned that her shoulder has frozen.

"It was quite a bad fall," she began. "I'm not too bad to be honest. I have to say, I have been trying to move my arm more because the physio advised me to.

"I'm a bit concerned now that I am getting frozen shoulder because I've got very limited movement, I feel like I have taken a little bit of a step back. I've got another scan on Tuesday next week so I should know more."

Denise added: "But it's a weird thing when it's your shoulder because you can't really put a cast on it, you can't keep it in a sling so you've just got to try and keep it moving so I keep forgetting… I still have fractured bones."

Speaking about how partner Eddie Boxshall has helped her, the star revealed: "Do you know what? He has been very helpful I have to say.

"I've been doing everything with one arm including the kitchen disco… raving with one arm because Eddie likes to DJ in the kitchen. But yeah, he's been really helpful… we have just been tootling along."

Denise recently revealed the reason why she and Eddie have decided not to have children together, explaining: "Not at this age. We sort of flirted with the idea of it two or three years ago but then realised that we have a really nice life."

Dancing on Ice airs on ITV.
