DANCING On Ice star Joe Swash had to race back to hospital for a second time today as he battles a stomach-churning injury.
The 38-year-old actor explained he has undergone another operation to drain yet more infected “goo” from his ear after being kicked with an ice-skate.
However, he said he WILL be allowed to perform at the big finale of Dancing On Ice on Sunday – without the head bandages.
Joe explained: “Went to the hospital and my ear swelled up again and they had to drain it which was honestly the worst feeling in the world.
“But the worst feeling in the world is that I think the bandage has actually got bigger.”
However, the star confirmed that doctors had cleared him to remove it for Sunday’s night big final, complaining: “I look like a nun.”
