Graham Bell's Dancing On Ice partner Yebin Mok has been forced to withdraw from the launch show after a horrific incident during training.
The professional skater suffered a "freak accident" that saw her inadvertently stabbed with an ice blade - an injury so serious that it left her tendons exposed.
"We had a Zoom meeting yesterday with the team and they showed us a picture that we can not show you on TV," said Schofield.
"Holly couldn't even look at it, she had to look away - and it was a very nasty stab wound from an ice blade.
"You could see the tendons, it's a very dangerous show."
A DOI spokesperson confirmed: "This week Olympic Skier Graham Bell and his partner Yebin had a freak accident which resulted in her having a laceration in her leg.
"Effectively it's a stab wound from an ice blade which has meant she will be out of the show for a few weeks.
"Yebin received immediate medical attention and is now resting and healing."
Dancing On Ice launches Sunday night at 6pm on ITV.
