Antony Cotton Suffers Fractured Ribs After Falling During Training

Antony Cotton Suffers Fractured Ribs After Falling During Training”

Just as Antony was getting to grips with the ice, he fractured two ribs whilst training with partner Brandee Malto.

"I've never phoned in sick - not once, not ever - and I don't intend to start now", he told his Twitter followers.

Brandee has revealed that she thought she had "killed him" during the fall because he didn't appear to be breathing.

It's believed Antony smashed his ribs after he fell backwards with Brandee while they were practicing a hard lift and they both ended up crashing into the ice.

Describing the accident, Antony said: 'The worst part was that I couldn't breathe'.

'I cradled around Brandee so that my head was up, ' he said on Friday's show.

The "Coronation Street" star - who plays flamboyant underwear factory worker Sean Tully in the soap - is set to take to the rink in just two days' time, but his future on the show is now up in the air after he was rushed to hospital on Wednesday with fractured ribs following a nasty tumble during rehearsals.

While his skating partner Brandee Malto escaped unharmed, Antony had to be rushed to hospital.

Explaining the scary moment, Antony said: 'On Wednesday, Brandee and I were training for this week's show when we lost our balance and both fell backwards on to the ice.

He added: "Hopefully the painkillers and sequins will see us through".

ITV released the following statement: "Antony fell on the ice during training and as a precaution was taken to a nearby hospital".

It's not yet known if Antony, 42, will be well enough to get his skates on for this weekend's show.

She was told to rest for a day, but was back on the ice for Sunday night's episode of Dancing On Ice. This Morning airs 10.30am weekdays on ITV.
