Denise van Outen has said she feels like she's taken a "step back" as she recovers from her painful Dancing On Ice injury.

The 46-year-old, who was starring in the current series of the ITV programme, broke her shoulder in three places while training for the show.

She was forced to withdraw from the competition after the painful fall.

Denise has revealed she feels like she's taken a "step back" as she gave an update about her recovery.

During an interview on Friday's BBC Morning Live, Denise spoke about how she was feeling with Gethin Jones.

She explained: "It was quite a bad fall. I'm not too bad, to be honest.

"I have to say, I've been trying to move my arm more because the physio advised me too.

"I'm a bit concerned now that I'm getting frozen shoulder because I've got very limited movement, I feel like I've taken a bit of a step back."

Denise was forced to pull out of DOI last month after she partially dislocated her shoulder and was taken to the hospital to be treated.

Due to her extensive injury, it was determined that she couldn't continue to skate while recovering.

Opening up about the difficult decision, the star shared a picture of her and partner Matt Evers, posting on Instagram: "GUTTED! If you’ve been watching @dancingonice you will be aware that just over a week ago I had a nasty fall and injured my shoulder.

"I managed to skate my first dance with @themattevers on the live show through a gritted smile because the pain was unbearable. I’ve tried as hard as I can to carry on because I love the show and the amazing team in front and behind the cameras."

She added: "Initially we thought with rest I could make a return to the ice, but a recent MRI scan has shown that I have 3 bone fractures as well as a partial dislocation. OUCH! No wonder I’ve been in agony.

"I won’t be able to do any lifts, tricks or solo skating on the show due to my injury.

"I’m going to bail out gracefully with my DOI bling sling. @themattevers has been the most incredible support and skate partner (a true friend) and I’m so grateful for his expertise in teaching me (ice virgin) the basics."
