DANCING On Ice finalist The Vivienne was left in agony after suffering another nasty fall just days ahead of the live final.
The Sun can reveal the drag queen had been working hard to perfect their routine on Thursday morning before going down hard on the ice.

A source said: "Injuries are to be expected this far into the competition but Viv's knee is turning into a bit of a nightmare.
"Thursday's rehearsal was going really well up until she lost her balance and her knee buckled while trying to perfect her routine.
