Exclamation 'I'm a sadomasochist,' says Heather Mills as she reveals Dancing On Ice injuries

'I'm a sadomasochist,' says Heather Mills as she reveals Dancing On Ice injuries caused by her disability

With just days until the first show of this year's Dancing On Ice, the celebrities are all suffering from their nerves.
But none more so than Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills, who has revealed she has suffered four injuries during rehearsals.
The former model, who has a prosthetic leg, has snapped one rib, fractured another, torn muscles in her shoulder and injured her pelvis.

As she joined the other contestants on This Morning today she announced: 'I snapped off the end of my 11th rib, fractured the left one, torn my rotator cuff and shifted my pelvis.

'But I'm a sadomasochist so that's why I'm still here.'
Heather, who wore thigh-high boots, said her disability had caused specific problems

'You can't feel the edge, you have to sort of guess it and feel through the hip,' she said. 'This knee will bend but that one won't.
'The problem is if I get it angled forward to get the perfect position over the knee then when I do a cross-over my heel hits the ice.

'And 'cause there's so many cross-overs it was 50-50 which one do I go for. So I went for the cross-over and then I just fake it with hip, but it keeps making me stick my bum out.'

Joining Heather on the sofa was former Boyzone singer Mikey Graham.
He agreed to take part following the death of his bandmate, former contestant Stephen Gateley.
'Stephen was involved in it as well a couple of years ago and it's good to do it for him too,' he said.

Mikey said his family were big fans.
'It's a TV show the everybody loves, obviously. My wife and kids and mother etc are all big fans of the show.

'And I suppose secretly at home I always thought, "I wouldn't mind having a go at that."

'When the opportunity came up I said it to my wife and kids and of course they were like "You've gotta do it."'

Simon Cowell's former girlfriend Sinitta said the X Factor boss has asked her 'Are you out of your mind?'
But she said he had been 'very supportive'
'He said he would come and see,' she said. 'He has to.'
Cookery writer Tana Ramsay said she was feeling her nerves.
'Terrified, nervous, but really excited,' she said. 'I was so nervous when Gordon [Ramsay, her husband] came down and brought the children to see.
'I've never performed, can't really dance, and now I'm doing it on ice!'

More on this.....

Busty Heather Mills says she might skate on one leg as she reveals long list of injuries

She's got the rigidly maintained smile, the tassels and the skates.

And as she prepares to compete in Dancing On Ice, it looks like Heather Mills has decided she needs another essential - an uplifting bra.

Posing in her yellow dress, the 41-year-old cut a somewhat different figure from the ladylike image she cultivated when she was married to Sir Paul McCartney.

Gone are the floor-length gowns and softer styles, replaced by a more shapely look reminiscent of Miss Mills's early days as a glamour model. She says in her autobiography that she had a bust reduction in her twenties, going from a 34E bra size to a 34C.
Miss Mills, labelled a perennial self-publicist, described herself as a ‘sadomasochist’ for choosing to compete in the new series of Dancing On Ice.

The blonde - who lost her left leg after being knocked over by a police motorcycle in 1993 - is battling to win back public affection after her bitter split from Sir Paul.

Complaining about her litany of injuries ahead of Sunday’s opening show she also revealed she may have to perform a one-legged routine if her injuries deteriorate - but vowed to persist with the show.

Some days the leg is great and you can run and dance, she explained, ‘Other days I have to stay in and do my paperwork.

‘What people don't understand is you have a socket and that is where you have to stay the same weight all the time.

‘If you put on five or six pounds it swells up and if you lose weight it shrinks, then it pistons and that is when it bleeds and blisters and you have to leave it off for a few days and let it heal.

‘If that happens in a day or two of the show we will have to have a back up routine where we do loads of throws and things.’

She added: ‘I snapped off my rib doing a rolled up lift, I injured my 11th floating rib. They didn't realise it was floating until they found it under the eighth and ninth. I was off the ice for a while.

‘Then I fractured my left rib and broke my rotator cuff. Then I shifted out my pelvis, because I have got a broken pelvis from before. There is not much left to break so I am hoping all of that is behind me. It totally cast doubts over whether I should do the show.

'Then I woke up the next day and thought 'I'm doing this for charity' and I saw my ice boots and sparkly catsuits and thought I have got to do this.’

The former model became a public hate figure because of her angry spats and attacks on her ex-husband.

Miss Mills’ four-year marriage to the former Beatle, 67, ended in May 2006 and the divorce was made final in May 2008.

She was awarded a settlement of 24.3million, plus payments of 35,000 a year, for a nanny and school costs for their six-year-old daughter Beatrice.

The star was widely ridiculed for her continual moaning about the settlement and her treatment at the hands of Sir Paul.

She denied she agreed to go on Dancing On Ice for the publicity insisting she had loved the programme for years, and had been approached after going to watch one of the live shows.
Miss Mills, whose occupation is ‘charity campaigner’, added she felt it was an opportunity for the public to see the real her.

She said ‘I forget the cameras are there when I am on the ice so God knows what is going to come out. I am just looking forward to it.’

The star confessed she may have to perform routines on one leg and has developed a specific routine as a contingency plan.

Miss Mills said she was inspired by a Chinese amputee ballet company which features a male performer with one leg and a crutch performing a routine.

It is understood she is being paid around 50,000 for her appearance on the show but is donating the money to charity.

In 2007 she took part on American TV talent contest, Dancing With The Stars, the U.S. version of Strictly Come Dancing.

Miss Mills is competing against 13 other celebrities including Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana, 35, GMTV’s Dr Hilary Jones, 56, EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook, 36, and 37 year-old Boyzone
singer Mikey Graham.

Mrs Ramsay, who describes herself as an author, confessed she was nervous about appearing on the show.

Seemingly unfazed by allegations of her husband’s infidelities last year, she described him as an incredible support and credited him with encouraging her to do the show.

The mother of four said: ‘Gordon is the one I go home to every night and talk about how I am having a bad day. I need him and the kids there to support me.’

This year’s Dancing On Ice, which is hosted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, is the biggest ever with 14 contestants.

ITV has changed the judging panel replacing West End star Ruthie Henshall, 42, with 33-year-old Spice Girl Emma Bunton.
