VIDEO: Jason Donovan Announces Withdrawal From DANCING ON ICE Following Back Injury

Donovan is the fifth celebrity to withdraw from the competition after two were injured and two others contracted Covid-19.

Jason Donovan has announced that he will be pulling out of Dancing On Ice due to an ongoing back injury. He made the announcement in a video on his social media accounts yesterday.

Donovan is the fifth celebrity to withdraw from the competition, after Denise Van Outen and Billie Shepherd were injured, and Rufus Hound and Joe-Warren Platt contracted Covid-19.

"I am devastated to announce that due to this ongoing back issue that occurred on Dancing on Ice about 10 days ago, and at the advice of my medical team in the show, that unfortunately I can't continue in the competition and therefore have to withdraw," Donovan said in his announcement. "We put so much work into getting to this point but I have to respect my health and I have to respect my body moving forward. That is my biggest priority."
