Denise Van Outen could be forced to miss the Dancing on Ice launch show after dislocating her shoulder.
The actress and her ice partner, Matt Evers, have changed their routine following the fall.
But it's still "touch and go" whether she'll make it through tonight's show, which will go ahead despite a covid-19 outbreak.
Denise, 46, was rushed to hospital after falling during rehearsals. She suffered a "partial dislocation and tendon damage" to her left shoulder, according to The Sun on Sunday.

The mum-of-one shared a string of pictures on social media, thanking the "overstretched" NHS for caring for her.
And her partner, Matt, for "being a true friend".
She joked, "Told you I'm clumsy on ice!"
Despite the fall, an insider close to Denise has said she'll do all she can to perform on tonight's launch show.
"Denise had a huge scare, but she's determined not to let a dislocated shoulder stop her from performing on the launch show," the insider told The Sun.
"She's had huge support from her skating partner Matt Evers. He's going to be on hand to make sure tonight goes to plan, despite the difficult circumstances."
And she's got the support of all her fellow Dancing on Ice contestants, including Billie Faiers who had nothing but kind words for her co-star.
"You are so amazing And brave !!! nothings going to stop this lady 🙌🏻💃🏼⛸❤️ I am soooo excited to watch you and @themattevers later."
A show insider revealed the whole cast and crew are behind her, and think she's a "trooper" for carrying on.
"Denise was incredibly brave. She’s a real trouper. The ice is harder than concrete and very unforgiving.
She had a nasty fall so she’s impressed the whole crew by getting back on her skates. Everyone is rooting for her.”
Go on, Denise!
