Dancing on Ice star Connor Ball is still suffering from pain three months after injuring himself while taking part in the ITV competition.

The 25-year-old star has revealed he's concerned the injuries he's suffered could be permanent.

Fans will remember that he was left bleeding after slicing his leg open in a horrific show accident.

He took a tumble with partner Alexandra Schauman's blade going into his leg.

Connor needed urgent medical attention and required stitches.

The Vamps bass player told The Sun: "I am always injured. I have scars, still, and my leg is pretty dead. I can't feel half of my shin still.

"I went through a nerve and they said it might come back, or it might never. I was having physio but I've finished it now."

Connor sustained a several injuries while training for Dancing on Ice.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on her ITV talk show in March, Connor said: "I split my chin open and I have five stitches in there! I dislocated my shoulder as well.

"I also ripped my leg open and have stitches down there too and there are a lot of bruises."

Connor and Alexandra ended up in fourth place and crashed out of the competition in the live semi-final.

Regan Gascoigne and his professional skating partner Karina Manta were crowned champions of the 2022 series.

Regan, who is a professional dancer and the son of football legend Paul Gascoigne, beat fellow celebrities – former Strictly pro Brendan Cole and Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt – to lift the trophy.

In an incredibly close contest all three finalists were tied after earning perfect 40 out of 40 scores for their two final routines.

As hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield announced Regan was the new Dancing On Ice 2022 Champion, he burst into tears and was congratulated by the other competitors.

After being left speechless and emotional by the result, a flustered Regan admitted he couldn't believe that he'd won.
