Siva Kaneswaran suffered a head injury after a "serious fall" while training for 'Dancing On Ice'.

The Wanted singer experienced a "mild concussion" after taking a tumble on the ice and admitted the accident has knocked his confidence ahead of the show's return on Sunday (15.01.23).

He told reporters: "Friday just passed, I had a serious fall, I hit the back of my head so I've been diagnosed with a mild concussion as of today.

"To get back on the ice it can really shake your confidence.

"But I expected this and we're just trying to stay focused and determined and I know that this is part of the whole journey."

The 'All Time Low' hitmaker - who is paired with professional skater Klabera Komini - didn't need hospital treatment because there was a medical team on hand at the rink.

Asked if he had been to hospital, he said: "No, luckily we have a medic beside the rink and we have a physio in the building too.

"So they had my blood pressure, blood taking and they checked my eyes, so they were all there.

"I'm still here and I'm OK."

Siva previously admitted he was inspired to take part in the show in honour of his late bandmate Tom Parker, who died from a brain tumour last March.

He said recently: "I wanted to take what happened with Tom, you know losing Tom and I was inspired by him and his fight, and take that bravery onto the ice to show people that when you fall down you can get back up.

"I’m doing it obviously to carry on his memory."
