Denise Van Outen looked relaxed as she munched on a bag of crisps in the back of a cab after leaving the Dancing on Ice studios last night.
It was touch and go as to whether the West End star could perform on Sunday’s show after she ended up dislocating her shoulder during rehearsals.
The actress ended up in hospital after falling face-first onto the ice while training with dance partner Matt Evers.
However, Denise put on a brave face and battled through the performance with her shoulder strapped up.
Despite receiving quite low scores from the judges, Denise looked in good spirits as she left the studio to go home.

Dressed in a grey jumper and black joggers and trainers, the former soap star enjoyed a packet of cheese and onion crisps as she sat in the back of a taxi.
Asked how she had been holding up since the incident, Denise shared: ‘It’s really sore, but because of the adrenaline I can’t feel it.’
She joked: ‘I’m more concerned that I couldn’t shave my armpits for four days! So if you saw any spiders legs…’
The judges noticed she was visibly nervous throughout the performance, with Chris saying: ‘You’re holding on to Matt a little bit.
‘Once this arm is better and you get more confidence I know you’ll come out fighting.’
Diversity star Ashley added: ‘I’ve got so much respect.
‘It was interesting seeing the two halves. The energy was on point when you were on the stage but you got onto the ice and it was way more reserved.’
Dancing on Ice returns next Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
