He’s one of the favourites to walk away with the trophy during this year’s competition.

However, James Jordan suffered a major blow in his quest for Dancing On Ice glory after he accidentally dropped professional partner Alexandra Schauman on her head during rehearsals this week. 

Images released by ITV show the former Strictly Come Dancing star, 40, attempting a complicated lift with the Finnish born skater, 38, as they practised ahead of Sunday’s live show.

But things went disastrously wrong as James appeared to lose his footing and fall, dropping poor Alexandra on her head in the process.

The pictures show James holding Alexandra upside down between his legs for the move before he slipped, falling on top of her.

A horrified James was seen looking deeply concerned for Alexandra as paramedics rushed onto the ice to help. 

As the medics checked over the ice skater, James watched on, supporting Alexandra’s head.

The dramatic scenes come after James, married to fellow Strictly alumni Ola Jordan, previously confessed that his biggest fear on the show was to drop his partner. 

However, James isn’t the only celebrity to drop their skate partner on the show. 

His ice rival Brian McFadden previously suffered a blunder on ice after dropping pro Alex Murphy during their routine. 

After what had started off as a flawless performance, things went pear-shaped towards the end when the Irish singer got her leg and flipped her upside down in a dangerous lift, but he failed to catch her leg at the end, resulting in Alex falling to the ice.

Yet, like a true professional, Alex quickly got up from the fall and they were able to finish their routine.

With the competition tougher than ever, only five couples remain as they battle it out to be crowed champion.

Alongside their partners, James, Brian, Wes Nelson, Saara Alto and Melody Thornton will skate in the next round of the popular show. 

Dancing on Ice airs Sundays at 6pm on ITV.
