Speaking to MailOnline this week, Lady Leshurr said: ‘I can’t believe it I’m drained. I really liked [Jason], everyone loved him. It’s the 13th round and you know what they say, that’s an unlucky number.
“I didn’t think there would be any injuries. I went directly into this business, I did not think of any repercussions. I twisted my knee and that’s how I am now.
“You have to take care of your body, stretch and warm up before going on stage. We had a whole week [off] so that was good. Some people have lived worse than others. It was just too bad for Jason.

The hitmaker said one of the reasons she participated in Dancing On Ice was in memory of her sister Carmen, who died in late 2019 at the age of 39 following a battle with breast cancer. .
Lady Leshurr admitted that she briefly considered giving up her music career after Carmen’s death, but then took to TV shows like Celebrity MasterChef and Dancing On Ice as a distraction.
She said: ‘Losing my sister I lost my confidence. Every time I tried to write a song I felt really sad, it just wasn’t me. I thought, “I can’t go on.”
“ As an artist you have to keep going otherwise everyone will forget you but I felt like I couldn’t. One of the things that helped me get out of it was doing TV shows, things that I would never do.
