The 28-year-old former Brookside actress was emotional as she was taken away for medical treatment, but has posted a message on the show's official site insisting that she is "absolutely fine".

"This is a message to everyone who has been in touch to see if I'm ok. I'm absolutely fine and I've been glued together," she said.

"I've got a bit of a headache and I'll probably feel even worse in the morning, but thanks for all the support, it means so much to me. Hopefully I won't have to do the routine again."

Her pro partner Daniel Whiston spoke about how the incident occured, commenting: "At the end of the routine Jen does a scorpion kick. She threw her leg really high and the heel of her skate has gone into the back of her head.

"Her whole hair was just red because obviously the heart's pumping and a lot of blood's come out. But she's in great hands now."
