Dancing On Ice star ‘in black cab crash’ ahead of show semi-final

Dancing On Ice professional skater Matt Evers, has shared a traumatic experience on social media after the black cab he was travelling in was involved in a crash.

The 43-year-old made British TV history when he partnered Steps singer Ian 'H' Watkins in the ITV skating show, to become the first single-sex pairing.

Dancing On Ice has reached the business end of the competition, with the semi-finals being judged live on Sunday evening.

Matt and H were unfortunately knocked out of the competition a few weeks ago, with Matt now taking part in the professionals' group numbers.

He was left a little shaken by the accident on Saturday night but more for the actions of the other drivers involved in the smash.

Taking to Twitter , Matt revealed that his cab driver was left feeling "p***ed off" as the other drivers fled the scene without exchanging details.

Matt wrote: "My Black Cab has just been in an accident. After the collision both parties have driven off. This surely is not standard practice. I’m ok but WTAF…. who do I contact? My driver is to say the least p***ed off."

The skating pro was flooded with suggestions from fans as to what actions he should take, with a number of them saying that he should contact the police.


One fan suggested: "OMG what is wrong with people! Definitely would report it to the police. Hope you're doing OK."

Another was concerned for Matt's wellbeing: "OMG so glad u r ok hope u were still checked over. WTAF indeed as everyone says police and possibly taxi guys office hope they r caught."

Matt has recently spoken out about the effect of Dancing On Ice co-host, Phillip Schofield, coming out and "normalising" the process.

Matt was married to a woman before coming out in his 20s – and says Phil’s brave honesty will help others internally struggling with their sexuality.

“It has to not be a thing to come out,” says Matt.

"There are a lot of people who are struggling with their identity and struggling with their sexuality, and just making it more normal helps people ease into that process."
