Dancing on Ice’s Joe-Warren Plant takes a tumble during first skate with Vanessa

Dancing on Ice contestant Joe-Warren Plant took a nasty tumble on the ice as the 2021 series of the ITV show began.

The 18-year-old Emmerdale actor is the youngest contestant to have appeared on the show, but took his mishap all in his stride.

Joe-Warren received a total of 25 points, with the judging panel admitting they had deducted some due to his accident.

However, Dean Torvill praised Joe-Warren for smiling as he fell and smiling as he got back up and finished his routine with Vanessa Bauer.

"He was smiling when he fell down and he was still smiling when he got up – that's what I loved about this performance," he told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Jayne Torvill added: "I loved the performance. I was ready to give you seven but I had to take a point off."

John Barrowman was quick to call out fellow judge Ashley Banjo for only giving Joe-Warren a six.

"A fall is a fall," the Diversity star simply replied.

He then added: "Just know you’re great, more of the same next week just don’t fall over!"

John then added: "You have such ease and such flow on the ice."
