Christine Lampard makes cheeky dig at The Masked Dancer star after clumsy injury

The Masked Dancer stars David and Frankie Seaman had to leave the competition early due to an injury – which Christine Lampard poked fun at.

The former footballer and ex Dancing On Ice star were forced to pull out of the ITV competition after Frankie suffered an injury in training.

Both stars appeared on ITV's Lorraine on Monday (October 3) and were interviewed by stand-in host Christine.

The presenter asked the couple how they found the experience and how they managed to keep it all top secret.

She then moved on to Frankie's injury and said: "Clearly, you're just better on skates, Frankie.

"You're just safer on skates – that's the opposite for the rest of us but you just need skates ."

Frankie then responded: "I said to them for the first costume fitting that I was so terrified of the shoes.

"Everyone thought I was just being silly because they're like 'that's so funny because you're an ice skater.'

"And I'm like 'no, I'm terrified of shoes.'

"Literally, I was wearing trainers and holding his hand when I fell over so they're just no saving me."

David and Frankie met when he starred on the ITV skating show and they two were paired up in 2008.

Later down the line, Frankie was axed from the show and was told via email.

She once told The Sun: “The show was really great to me for the first 10 years but when it came back, there was a lack of communication.

“But entertainment is really difficult – one day you're hot, the next you're not.

“I was coming to the end of my career anyway and it was difficult to deal with not being a professional skater anymore, because that defined me since I was 10 years old."

She also added how she feels "so lucky" to have a lovely home situation and a great husband, both of which were helped by the show.
