Dancing On Ice star, Vanilla Ice was knocked out cold after hitting his head on the ice during training. The rapper, who’s real name is Robert Van Winkle, was dancing with partner Katie Stainsby, when he tripped and smashed his head on the ice.
The star suffered a deep gash on his temple and a cut on his cheek leaving blood all over the ice. After been rushed to A&E and stitched up Vanilla told a newspaper, ‘I [felt] like I got hit by a train,’
‘Katie scraped me off the ice.
‘I had no idea what happened at first – I was out for a few minutes.
‘There was blood everywhere.’
The 43 year old rapper won’t let it stop him though, and in true showbiz style, the show must go on.
‘It’s the greatest show on earth until you crash,’ he during his appearance on Daybreak this morning.
‘I’ve got some bruising here and some make-up and a nice few stitches here and a cut, but I’m going to be alright.
‘I race dirt bikes, this is something that happens, you crash you get up, you dust your shoulder off and you get back out there.
‘This fall is not going to set me back at all.
‘I’m giving it 110% and hope that’s good enough to get me through.
‘The show must go on!’
Let’s just hope after all that pain that Vanilla doesn’t find himself voted off tonight.
