In a post on Instagram after the accident, Mok explained what had happened and admitted she was “gutted” to have left unable to skate on Dancing on Ice.
She wrote: “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.”
The star is now recovering with rehab exercises and nutrient-dense foods to help the wound to heal.
