DANCING On Ice star Greg Rutherford has revealed his son was rushed to hospital after losing ‘a tonne of blood’.
The Olympian revealed that his son Rex, six – who he shares with fiancee Susie Verill – had hurt himself and needed medical help with his head injury.
Sharing a snap of the young boy’s bloody cut, Greg said: “Young Rexy took on the door frame and lost… a ton of blood and some tears later we’re in A&E hoping his new head mouth can be closed soon.”
He later posted a picture of the pair together with the caption: “One minute I’m stressing about a silly ice dance, the next mopping up blood and taking young Rexy to hospital.

“Perspective is key.
“PS he was SO brave.
“The wonderful staff and Milton Keynes hospital glued his head back and we were on our way, Rexy hardly flinched.
“Love the NHS.”

Greg also shares Milo, nine, and Daphne, two, with Susie.
Earlier this month Greg issued a health update after his recent chest infection and ‘collapse’.
Before his debut on the ice he was ill, but spoke to The Sun ahead of the live shows.
He told The Sun: “It was more over Christmas and New Year where it’s affected me the most and the guys can confirm while I’ve been at the the rink, there’s been a bit of coughing here and there, but it’s significantly better now to be totally honest.
“Had the weekend off to rest, recover, recuperate and go for all that sort of stuff so feeling significantly better.
“The thing is, this show takes so much out of you mentally and physically that when you have that time like the Christmas period where we were all off for a few weeks, I think just my body decided that it was going to be sickness time, but I’m feeling much better.”
