Dancing On Ice’s Joe-Warren Plant returns to training after a painful injury

Joe-Warren Plant has taken to social media to share that he is back in action less than a week after suffering from a gruelling knee injury.

The Emmerdale actor last week announced he had to miss training for the upcoming season of Dancing On Ice and instead had to seek urgent treatment from a physio after his ongoing injury continued to cause pain.

Joe, 18, has been keeping his social media followers updated with his progress as professional skating star Vanessa Bauer puts him through his paces.

The actor took to his Instagram Stories as he shared his excitement after being reunited with Vanessa.

Sharing a photograph of his bright red trainers as he sat in the driving seat of his stationary car, Joe captioned his post: "First training session back complete,

"Got some catching up to do but I'll get there."

The Blackpool-born actor updated his followers on his condition last week, in a video taken while undergoing an intense physio session.

He said: "Yo, what's going on guys I'm currently at JamPhysio, got my cold compression on my knee, it sucks we had to miss training this morning it really does.

"For the past two weeks since we started, my knee hasn't been causing me any pain or discomfort whatsoever so I automatically thought it was healing and getting better."

Joe went on to say: "Yesterday I took it a little too far and I feel like I am back to square one with it."

"It's an injury I've had for months and I have found myself in a cycle where it gets better, it's healing, then boom it happens again.

"I just need to take the precautions necessary and get it under control."

Joe and Vanessa were almost dealt another shattering blow when the UK went into lockdown on November 5, putting the future of Dancing On Ice in jeopardy.

Ice rinks across the nation were forced to close their doors in a bid to contain the coronavirus which continues to wreak havoc across the nation.

However, a spokesperson for ITV confirmed that training will still be going ahead following approval from the government.

"ITV takes the safety and welfare of everyone involved with its programmes extremely seriously and follows all Government guidelines regarding Covid-19," the network said.

"The government has confirmed that TV production can carry on throughout lockdown, to that end we will be hiring the local ice rinks on a private and exclusive hire basis."

Dancing On Ice is expected to return to screens in January 2021.
