Dancing On Ice's Kimberley Wyatt smashes face-first onto the rink in nasty rehearsal accident

HORROR pictures show the moment Dancing On Ice star Kimberley Wyatt smashed face-first onto the rink while rehearsing.

The Pussycats Doll sensation, 39, was training with partner Mark Henretty for the hit ITV show when she suffered a dramatic tumble.

Singer Kimberley was dressed all in black with white skates as she was snapped getting to grips with skating and learning moves.

But while the blonde bombshell looked confident as she took on lifts with professional partner Henretty, she appeared to lose her balance for a moment and plummeted face-first to the ice – attempting to break her fall with her hands.

Despite her setback, Kimberley looked elegant as she sported a practical ponytail and gloves for her training session – pulling off in sync moves with Henretty.

The American dancer is one of 12 stars to have been announced for the upcoming installment of DOI – due to hit TV screens in January.

Included in the daring dozen is Love Island favourite Liberty Poole – who was also pictured hitting the ice during training.

The reality star was pictured lying flat on her back on the ice after one of her new skating tricks got the better of her last week.

Although she appeared to be a natural on the ice in prior sessions, Liberty proved that she's still learning as she lost her balance and fell over in the rink.

Despite her momentary loss of balance, the ITV starlet appeared in good spirits and smiled as she got back to her feet with the help of her coach without injury.

All 12 celebs are busy polishing up their skating skills before the hit ITV dance competition returns in the new year.

Vamps star Connor Ball will be taking to the ice to compete, with Coronation Street’s Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster, and former Dancing On Ice pro dancer Brendan Cole also joining up to take part.

They will be going head to head with TV presenter Ria Hebden, BMX Olympic silver medallist Kye Whyte, Happy Mondays dancer Bez, former S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens and former England rugby player Ben Foden.

Completing the line-up are dancer Regan Gascoigne, son of footballer Paul, and long jump Paralympian silver medallist Stef Reid.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will be back as hosts, alongside judges Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo.
