Dancing On Ice star Graham Bell accidentally SWEARS live on air during ‘hungover’ appearance on Lorraine after being axed from skating show
Dancing On Ice star Graham Bell suffered an awkward blunder when he accidentally swore live on Lorraine on Monday.
Former Olmypic skier Graham, 55, admitted that he was hungover after downing bottles of wine and binge watching A Discovery of Witches when he got home from the ITV studios after being booted from the show.
His swearword happened when he told Lorraine about his past behaviour at the Olympics and spoke about how he once scaled a flag pole.
‘Oh, s***!’ Dancing On Ice star Graham Bell accidentally SWORE live on Lorraine on Monday during ‘hungover’ appearance a day after being axed from ITV show
He said: ‘I climbed up the pole to untie the flag and as I looked down my friends had been replaced by armed police and I just thought “s***”.’
Lorraine, 61, covered her mouth in shock and later apologised and said: ‘Sorry for that wee naughty word that slipped out from Graham there.’
Talking about his final Dancing On Ice performance, he said: ‘I thought we did a really good dance off but obviously the judges didn’t.’
Second to go home: Graham and Karina Manta performed an elegant routine in the Dancing On Ice skate-off on Sunday, but sadly they failed to secure a vote from the judges
And sticking the boot in, Lorraine said: ‘You injured your first partner.’
Graham accidentally took a chunk of 36-year-old Yebin Mok’s leg out in a freak accident which forced her to miss the show.
Graham replied: ‘That was my worst fear, that I’d injure my pro. We had a really close working relationship and I was on the phone to her all the time.

Karina [Manta], 24, came in and did a fantastic job but the fact I didn’t get to skate with Yebin was heartbreaking.
Lorraine asked him: ‘Are you covered in bruises?’
He replied: ‘I can take a hit. The issue is hurting someone else. When I was holding Yebin’s leg and holding this wound together, that was the low point.’
But Graham said he will take what he has learned and will continue to skate.
He said: ‘Oh yeah, it’s actually helped my skiing a lot. A lot of people do the show and hang their boots up but I will continue skating. I’m going to teach Yebin to ski.
‘Rebekah Vardy, when I hurt Yebin, she was one of the ones who supported me. I was pretty low when that happened and she sent me lots of supportive messages.
‘I’m going to teach her family to skate as well, not Jamie because he’s doing football.’
Lorraine also asked Graham about the Olympics.
He said: ‘We’ve got two coming up, Tokyo and Beijing. I’m hoping we can find a way of making it happen. You don’t know how quickly this vaccine will come in.
‘I don’t want them to make a decision too early. I’m hoping there’s a way to make the Olympics happen.’
Farewell: Speaking after his elimination, Graham said he felt he could have given more to the show, but added that he will continue to skate in the future
