Coronation Street's Mollie Gallagher crashes to the ground in nasty Dancing On Ice accident | The Sun

CORONATION Street star Mollie Gallagher suffered a nasty fall during Dancing on Ice rehearsals this week.

The actress – who plays Nina Lucas on the ITV soap – was seen on the ice for the first time practising with her partner Sylvain Longchambon in Manchester.



She has been paired up with Sylvain, who is married to her Corrie co-star Samia Longchambon.

Mollie, 25, showed off her technique as she practised her balancing skills on ice.

But it wasn't long before the soap star began to feel unsteady on her feet and took a tumble.

Mollie looked in good spirits as she smiled through the pain after falling flat on her bottom.

In October it was revealed that Mollie had joined the Dancing On Ice 2023 cast.

Speaking about getting the job, she told ITV's Lorraine: “I’m really excited. I’ve not really felt nervous yet, strangely. But being here today, I am now feeling it a little bit!” 

On seeking advice from her Coronation Street co-stars who have previously taken on DOI, Mollie said: “I’ll be getting all the tips I can because I’m going to need it!”

The actress has become a firm favourite with Corrie viewers since arriving on the cobbles in 2019.

Mollie revealed how her boyfriend Dan helped her switch off from her Corrie role during her dramatic storylines last year after she struggled to switch off from Nina’s emotional scenes. 

Nina’s boyfriend Seb Franklin was kicked to death by Corey Brent and his gang of thugs in a harrowing hate crime attack reminiscent of the real world attack on Sophie Lancaster in 2007.

But speaking out about how her role has taken a huge emotional toll, and how she’s struggled to switch off from all of Nina’s trauma at the end of the day, the soap star revealed: "Obviously when the Nina and Seb storyline started we were all still in lockdown so nothing was open. 

"You couldn’t go to the pub and see your friends. Luckily I live with my boyfriend so we would do little things together after work and at the weekend," she continued to The Sun's TV Mag.

"But because I wasn’t really doing anything apart from work I was literally being Nina more than I was being Mollie."
