It has been reported that he has been practicing in preparation to appear on the live tour in Wembley.
Donal said: "I was in severe pain and I couldn't skate for about two weeks but I have gone back on the ice in preparation for the tour. I am doing a couple of days in Wembley."
The Irishman confessed that he was a late-edition to the popular live tour as bosses thought that he would not be good enough to participate.
He explained: "They had signed-up people about half way through the show and the tour organisers said 'Listen Donal we are making a decision, we don't think that you are going to make it very far and we may be wrong', and I was delighted to prove them wrong but... I think that they were obliged to take myself and Florentine on for at least part of the tour."
He added: "I was keen to do at least some of the tour because Florentine, if she is able to drag her man from being a hopeless beginner to the Bolero, then she deserves some extra work. The professionals work so hard."
The investigative journalist, who finished as runner-up to Ray Quinn, admitted that he thought that he would never make it through to contest the title.
Donal said: "It was all very nervous, from being in the first and the last skate-off and starting off myself and Todd rubbing our beer bellies and praying for some corsets to survive our spandex and sequins.
He added: "Making it all the way to the final was a fantastic achievement for me and for Florentine. We enjoyed every second, it was a very special journey."
