And now, Vanessa has confirmed that she will not be taking part in the latest show after medics advised her to rest up, with the star admitting: 'I'm gutted.'

The German performer took to Instagram on Sunday morning to break the devastating news to her fans. 

Alongside a video of herself and a picture with her skating pals, she wrote: 'I think it’s obvious how I LOVE skating on @dancingonice which is why I’m gutted I can’t perform tonight! 

'After banging my head into the wall I feel fine but @itv is super cautious and really takes care of us skaters which is why I went through SO many tests.

'Although I feel ok I am not allowed to skate this weekend. For the sake of my health I have to rest my brain.'

The brunette was not set to compete with Perri this week as they took to the ice last week. However, she was due to perform in a group number.

She continued: 'I am GUTTED but at least @realperrikiely are not competing this week anyways! He will still be part of the group numbers like everybody else so I’m wishing everybody the best of luck and an incredible show! 

'@realperrikiely and I will be back for the next week. As funny as I thought my fall was, head injuries are no joke and the consequences can be very serious.'
