The Voice 2013: Danny O’Donoghue breaks ribs & on sex ban before new series!

Jingle Bell Ball 2010 - Day 1 - Arrivals

Danny O’Donoghue won’t be getting jiggy with any female beauties over the next few weeks it has been revealed.

The hunky Script singer has been forced to abstain from any sexual activity, after he managed to break his ribs while enjoying a luxury holiday over New Years.

Danny had just finished working on new auditions for the 2013 series of The Voice when he jetted off to Barbados, but the getaway ended in some serious pain, after he fell off an inflatable boat and injured himself.

O’Donoghue told The Sun:

“I came off the back of an inflatable boat being towed by another boat.”

“I was bouncing around on the f****** thing and I popped out the back and crashed on to my ribs.”

The scary incident hasn’t just left him in extreme pain but also sexually frustrated, because the star has been told to take it easy for the next few weeks. He added:


“I can’t take deep breaths to sing or have sex. I don’t have a girlfriend to complain, though.”

Danny also confirmed the news on Twitter writing:

“Hey guys thanks for the support, yes my ribs are fractured , asked for a body cast but all I got was pain killers #showgoeson”

The new series of The Voice returns in April and the first stage tryouts were held at the end of December 2012. The official Twitter account for the show mocked the Irish star a little after one talented singer left the stage when they tweeted:


“It must be hard being the hairs on @thescript_danny’s arm. Always standing up when people sing nicely. They must be knackered.”

It sounds like they all had fun during filming too, as they added:

“.@RealSirTomJones is singing an impromptu version of ‘Sex Bomb’. @thescript_danny is grinding. It’s going off like a yogurt on a radiator.”

We’re pretty excited about the prospect of gorgeous Danny back on our screens on a weekly basis. Are you? Leave your comments below…
