Easy does it: Jennifer Ellison clutches partner Dan Whiston as she regains her confidence on the ice during rehearsals yesterday
Miss Ellison skated gingerly at first with the help of her partner, but it wasn't too long before she was gliding again with ease and her smile had returned.
The confident moves were a far cry from the distraught actress breaking down on the ice just the day before.
Jennifer was pictured in tears during rehearsal, saying that she feels she is 'back to square one' after suffering a blow to the head on last week's show.

She admitted that she'd had a mini
meltdown after Sunday's accident, revealing she's been crying non stop
and is struggling to prepare for this weekend's showdown.
Ellison stunned viewers when she smashed her skate's blade into her skull during her daring 'scorpion kick' move.
Jennifer managed to finish the rest of the routine, even receiving the highest score of her season so far on Sunday's show.

But she was later pictured being attended to by medics, and as she left the Dancing On Ice
studios her scalp could be seen covered in blood while she clutched her
head during her lift home.
Brookside star has since attempted to get back on her skates ready to
compete in the next episode of the celebrity competition.
But she has now spoken out to reveal the difficulties she is having, revealing she is still getting over the shock.

Meltdown: The actress has barely practised this week's routine as she tries to regain her confidence
Appearing on ITV1 chat show Lorraine on Friday morning, she told the host: 'I went into a bit of shock and it's kind of set me back a little bit.
'I feel like I've gone back to square one. I'm like Bambi.'
And the star has barely had any time back on the ice because she keeps on crying and having to halt rehearsals, revealing she's so far only had two hours' rehearsal with only two days to go.

She told ITV's Daybreak on the same day: 'After the accident I went into shock and that's had a bit of a knock-on effect and we still haven't started our routine for Sunday.
'Monday, I was in shock (when) I went back on the ice. I kind of took a funny turn so they cancelled training. Then Tuesday I went on and just couldn't stop crying.'
