BRENDAN Cole has revealed tension behind the scenes at Dancing on ice. The former Strictly dancer says his skating partner Vanessa Bauer is having to "calm him down" as Sunday's launch show edges closer.

Brendan, 45, suffered concussion after a nasty fall on the first day of rehearsals. And he says "accidents happen all the time" as stars work hard to avoid being voted out first.

Comparing this experience to his time as a professional dancer on Strictly, Brendan said: "I've performed in this scenario for 15 years where I've been the one in control and having to calm my partner down. "Thankfully I've got a partner who can calm me down on Sunday.

Dancing on Ice’s Bez forced to wear safety gear on launch night in show first after DISASTROUS rehearsals
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.  Bez said: “On Wednesday I'd made a huge step and I only fell over once, which is really good for me.  “Today, I'm hoping to get through a full session without falling.  “But I definitely have more Frank Spencer moments than any man I know.” Last year the show was forced to skip a week, and then were forced to cut the show short after seven stars were forced to drop out, including five celebrity contestants, through injury and Covid.  Australian actor Jason Donovan picked up a back injury, while Joe-Warren Plant and his partner Vanessa Bauer had to leave the series after testing positive for coronavirus.

The last series had been increasingly fraught with tension, after Denise van Outen, Billie Faiers, and Jason Donovan all bowed out due to injury.In light of the catastrophes, Phillip recently admitted he had been banned from hitting the rink himself out of fears he would lose his footing and succumb to injury too.Holly was forced to share the sad news that 47-year-old Denise van Outen had suffered a dislocated shoulder and three bone fractures barely two weeks into the competition.Shockingly, she battled through the pain and continued skating for 15 hours after the dislocation so as not to "bother" the NHS.Soon afterwards came 31-year-old TOWIE star Billie, who had a terrifying head injury and, finally, 53-year-old Aussie actor Jason Donovan, who made it to the sixth week of action before a back injury ended his Dancing On Ice dreams.The string of injuries, together with contestants testing positive for Covid and reserve participants having to be drafted in at the last moment, all caused stress and anxiety for Holly.Baby-faced Emmerdale star Joe-Warren Plant and his pro partner Vanessa Bauer both succumbed to the virus and were forced to leave amid fears the entire series would collapse if Covid spread any further between the cast.Meanwhile, the show was unnervingly quiet, as due to social distancing restrictions, it was filmed without a live studio audience.However, it was nothing that a stiff G&T wouldn't solve.Holly was quick to point out to MailOnline: "We don’t do this on every ad break but for the final there was no wrap party and after the last series we all needed it."Meanwhile, Phillip was careful to avoid the rink after being warned of liability issues ever since he first began hosting the show.Claiming that
