Dancing on Ice pro shows leg injury after blade slashed her in freak accident

Dancing On Ice professional, Yebin Mok, has given fans an update in her recovery after suffering an injury earlier this month.

The skater is unable to perform alongside her partner Graham Bell at the launch on Sunday, following a freak accident which saw a skate blade stab her in the leg.

She previously said she was "absolutely gutted" to be missing the show.

But the 34-year-old added it was a "miracle" that she was not more injured than she was, writes The Mirror.

The pro posted an injury update on her Instagram today, and thanks fans for their well wishes.

Yebin revealed that she had already begun rehab exercises.

Alongside snaps of flowers she had received, Yebin wrote on her Insta Stories: "Thank you all for the lovely messages and get well wishes! Everyone is giving me such positive energies and it's definitely carrying me through! So thank you!

"Started my rehab exercises, eating nutrient dense foods for wound healing, visualizing muscle healing and I'm so pleased to say my leg is feeling so much stronger!

"Graham and I had a freak accident during our practice on Monday where his blade went into my shin.

"Such unlucky timing but also counting my lucky stars as I cut through the muscles, and not nerves, bone, vessels or tendons! How I didn’t cut any of that they say is a miracle.

"Just insanely bummed about not being able to showcase Graham’s amazing journey together after such long hard months of training, but I know he’s in great hands with @karinamanta to step in until I can get back on the ice, and I know he’s a fighter so he will do all he can to do his very best!

"Continue to vote for @skigraham and Karina! I’ll just be a nervous mom at the side of the rink with multiple devices to vote for them

"I’ll do my very best to heal and recover as quickly as I can with our physio, Sharon who is the best of the best, and if anyone can get me on the ice, it’s her! And I’ll be ready to skate with Graham if the fate allows it, so keep voting for him and here’s to hoping for the best on this unexpected bumpy road. (sic)."
