That’s where she was diagnosed with the lumbar synovial cyst – a condition she had “no idea” about.
“It was pea-sized and under the skin, so I would never have known about it if it weren’t for the scan,” she said.
Alongside the pain, Torvill found that the condition was extremely tiring and led to feeling depressed by the sheer pain of it.
But that didn’t stop her. Before she was cured, Torvill got through filming the series in 2012 and even performed live thanks to steroid injections.
