Dancing on Ice star Nile Wilson gave a spectacular first performance with his skating partner Olivia Smart when the ITV series returned. He scored big with 29.5 points for his routine to Harry Styles’ Sign of the Times, wowing and has already been tipped to be the one to watch in 2023. While Wilson has been working hard to get the routines up to scratch, he has been preoccupied with his family away from the cameras as well.

Dancing on Ice competitor Nile Wilson turned 27 on Tuesday, January 17, but it was also the day of his dad Neil’s brain surgery.

He suffered a bleed on the brain last year after Neil, who is in his mid-50s, had his “second stroke in 10 years” in November 2022.

Wilson’s dad had to undergo surgery earlier this week and thankfully, it seems as if it went according to plan.

The retired athlete took to Instagram to give his 490,000 followers an update on Neil’s health.

He wrote: “27 years young. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

Fans took to social media to wish him a happy birthday and congratulate his family on the good news.

Jono Vegan said: “Prayers for a speedy recovery”, while Melly Gwen added: “Glad Neil is good! Been thinking of him. Happy birthday man.”

Neil himself took to Instagram last year to explain what happened to him, more than a month later.
