NINETIES icon Bez has been such a disaster in training Dancing on Ice bosses are making him wear a helmet when he performs on Sunday night.

The Happy Mondays groover, 57, will be the first celebrity ever to wear safety gear live on the ITV show. He said: “Falling over is a daily occurrence to me.  “If I don't bang my head on the ice, I don't feel I've been doing it properly.” Photos from training have shown Bez’s helmet fly off because he struck the ice so hard.

And bosses are concerned how bad his fall could be under the pressure of live TV, when the show returns on Sunday. A show source said: “Health and safety is obviously of utmost importance and Bez has had some spectacular falls.  “While it’s all part of the show - and he does it with a smile - when his helmet flew off and he bashed his head on the ice, producers took the unusual step of asking him to perform wearing a helmet.  “It’s not ideal, actually it’s quite embarrassing for him, but Bez has taken it on the chin like a trooper.” Bez is dancing with Angela Egan, 34, who reached the final last year with Sonny Jay.

'Took its toll' Brendan Cole's wife Zoe shares struggles of 'solo parenting' amid break
“Ready to roll into 2022 with fresh enthusiasm.“Thanks for looking after us so beautifully.”Brendan and Zoe welcomed Aurelia in 2012.Meanwhile, her husband has been busy rehearsing for his first dance on the 14th series of Dancing On Ice, which kicks off today on ITV.The 45-year-old has been paired up with professional ice skater Vanessa Bauer, and though Brendan has plenty of experience when it comes to dancing, skating on ice could be a challenge for the father-of-one.But unlike his run on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, where he would often snipe back at judges for their criticism, Brendan insists that he has no plans to answer back on the ITV programme.In an interview with PA this month, he said: “I have no interest in answering back any of the judges on this particular show, I am coming in as a novice.“I am going to be listening, I will be taking on their critiques and trying to improve for the next week."He continued: “You won’t see the young upstart that you saw on Strictly, you will see the respectful old senile.”Brendan believes he has an advantage over some of the other contestants because he’s been dancing for decades.And while dancing while ice skating is quite the contrast from ballroom dancing, the New Zealand-born star is ready to tackle the challenge and prove to fans he’s an all-around great dancer.“It is still a very, very different discipline and I think that is the beauty of the show,” he added.“You’re going to see people at different stages and, like on Strictly, you get some fantastic dancers on there – where they start to where they finish is what’s important.“There are three or four of us who have danced in the past.“Yes, it might give a small advantage in some areas.”Brendan concluded: “But in some
