Mills Injured In Skating Show Rehearsals

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's ex-wife HEATHER MILLS is determined to compete as an ice-skater on a British reality TV show - despite fracturing her rib and damaging her shoulder in practice sessions.
The former glamour model, who lost part of her left leg in a traffic accident in 1993, is in rigorous rehearsals for Dancing On Ice, which hits the small screen in the U.K. later this month (Jan10).
But she is already nursing some nasty injuries after a series of falls on the rink.
Mills says, “I’ve snapped off my rib doing a lift, I had eight lessons and was flat on my back for 10 days after a fall, and I nearly had to drop out.
“I fractured a rib, tore my rotator cuff, then shifted out my pelvis. There is not much left to break... My doctor thought it was ridiculous and said: ‘I think you should pull out.’"
However, the 41 year old is determined to participate in the show - as long as her injuries aren't too serious.
She adds, "I woke up and thought, ‘I’m doing this for charity,’ and I saw my boots and sparkly catsuits and thought, ‘I’ve got to do this’. If I puncture a lung I guess I will have to give up.”
