Kem Cetinay's Dancing On Ice performance 'in doubt' after partner Alex Murphy suffers ankle injury

KEM Cetinay's Dancing On Ice performance has reportedly been put in doubt after his partner Alex Murphy suffered an ankle injury.

Alex hurt her leg during rehearsals on Friday and it looks like she might not be able to perform.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, Alex's ankle was "badly damaged" and she could be forced to pull out of tonight's performance if she hasn't recovered.

She's had plenty of help from show physios but a source said there is a "50 per cent chance" she won't be able to take to the ice.

Producers have reportedly lined up a "reserve skater" just in case and are "also considering fast-tracking the pair to next week's show".

A source said: "This is a nightmare for Kem and Alex. They’d worked really hard on their routine for this week’s show but now everything is hanging in the balance. It’s 50/50 whether she’ll be able to perform.”

Dancing On Ice bosses will only be able to decide what to do mere hours before the live show.

There are worries Alex could injure herself further live on air.

It comes after the contestants were said to be "dropping like flies" after a nasty virus swept through the show.

The Mirror reports that Kem, Donna Air, Lemar and his skating partner Melody Le Moal have all been "hit for six" by the mystery illness.

A source told the publication: "It’s a race against time to get fit again ahead of this weekend’s show.

“Not a day goes by when there isn’t someone else being laid low.
