The 'Dancing on Ice' star has admitted he'd really like to slip into a pair of skates when he ties the knot with his fiancee Danielle Fogarty this autumn and they've both agreed that they'll have their first dance on ice if he wins the skating show this weekend.

And, to ensure it's a moment they'll never forget, Jake's professional partner Vanessa Bauer has said she will teach Danielle how to skate and choreograph the routine.

Speaking to The Daily Mirror newspaper, Jake said: "Danielle can't skate but Vanessa says she will coach her and choreograph our first dance."

However, although he's determined to give it his all this weekend, he was left devastated earlier this week when he accidentally dislocated his thumb during training.

Taking to his Twitter account at the time, he said: "So I hurt my thumb today had to go for xray and MRI scan but I will [100 per cent] be skating on Sunday, I have not come this far to let a sore thumb stop me! Thanks for the nice messages. (sic)"

Viewers were no doubt hoping that Jake would pull out something spectacular for the final considering he was awarded the perfect score - 40 out of 40 - by the judges last week, but he's decided he'll now have to "play it safe" because of his painful thumb.

He explained when a fan asked why he'd had an MRI scan on his thumb: "Dislocated so just being on the safe side with lifts and stuff mate (sic)."

And, although he spent all afternoon in hospital, Jake couldn't wait to get back on the ice and professional skater Matt Evers has praised him on his "work ethic."

He tweeted: "Today this one @JakeQuickenden injured his thumb quite badly. He went to A&E, X-ray, scans, cleared and braced up.

"He then got straight back on the ice. Nothing is gunna stop him. His attitude is incredible and work ethic is second to non. #believe #achieve (sic)"
