Mumba may be too ill to dance on ice
Irish singing star Samantha Mumba may be forced to pull out of the forthcoming series of Dancing On Ice after falling ill at her London home.
Just prior to setting off to rehearsals for the ITV show, Mumba was struck down with flu-like symptoms and, according to reports, has since been placed on a drip to combat symptoms of dehydration.
A spokesman for the singer told the Mirror: “She is very sick but we are crossing our fingers that everything is OK.”
The news come soon after Hollyoaks star Chris Fountain injured himself in rehearsals ahead of the show’s Sunday launch.
In addition, Spice Girl Emma Bunton has announced that she is going to support Gareth Gates on the show, while fellow singer Will Young will also be along to cheer on his former Pop Idol rival.
