He was rushed to hospital after the freak accident in rehearsalsInstagram

Greg, 37, was rushed to the hospital after he suffered a ‘freak accident’ whilst rehearsing for his final routines.

After the final – which saw former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas crowned as the winner – he reflected on what could have been.

He previously uploaded footage of the rehearsal of his last showcase performance onto his Instagram grid page.

This was alongside a long essay caption as he paid tribute to Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean as well as the crew behind the scenes of the show.

Underneath, fans flooded the comments section to lavish the star name with praise.

Although, some fans couldn’t help but ask what exactly happened which caused Greg to sensationally pull out of the show at the last hour.

His fiance Susie Verrill replied to one of the fan as she attemoted to put the rumours to bed.

She explained: “It really isn’t anything gory or horrifying; just very painful and a bit of a freak accident.

“He hasn’t gone in to it because specialists have been working out how to pinpoint it/work out next steps so I think the show were keen not to say anything until they have official report back.”

She added: “Hope that clears it up!”

When one fan joked that the incident may have involved his private parts, the vlogger revealed the pair understood all the speculation.

Susie admitted: “No in fairness, it all sounded so suspicious we’re not surprised people wanted to know!

In his gushing Dancing On Ice post, the athlete wrote: “Here we gooooo.

“This is the showcase we didn’t get the perform due to injury. The point where I dive through Colin and Brendyn’s legs is where everything went wrong last Sunday.

“This is from either Friday or Saturday so I was still ironing out a few timings issues (which I’m sure you will notice ).

“I utterly loved this showcase. Everyone involved had worked so hard. Just look at the set too!! The guys behind the scenes never get enough credit, what they build in such a short amount of time is mind blowing.

“To have @torvillanddeanofficial choreograph a full routine for us too was so special. I loved working with them.”

He added: “Although I won’t be able to skate for maybe a couple of months. I intend on getting back on the ice and keeping it up. I really do love it.”
