So, Rebekah, are you glad you signed up for the show?
It’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve enjoyed every second of it. Stepping out on to the ice is the most amazing feeling. You don’t have to worry about anything else and it’s quite liberating.
Any injuries to report?
I’m the only person who’s injured my pro! It was awful. We were practising a trick and we changed it slightly, and it went very wrong. The back of my blades sliced his face open. I think he’s just come to terms with the scar on his face.

That sounds horrific! Did he have to take time off?
No, he was fine. Oddly he was concerned about making sure he could skate the next day. I wasn’t interested in that in the slightest, I just wanted to make sure he was OK. It was quite scary but it made me realise what we’re doing is really dangerous.
Is braving the ice more intimidating than being on I’m A Celeb?
Yes, 100%. The jungle is so different. This is far more terrifying. I spend more time upside down than I do on my feet!
Who are you hoping to impress on the judging panel?
They’re all looking at different aspects, so I want to impress them all. I struggle with the performing side. It’s not my background, so being able to put emotion with skating is hard. But I think we’re getting there, we’re breaking those boundaries.
Have any celeb friends been in touch?
Melody Thornton from Pussycat Dolls has given me some really good tips. She’s been helping me with the performance side of it and giving me stretching exercises.

Have you been practising the lifts with your husband, Jamie?
No, I couldn’t imagine him being any good at something like that. My eldest daughter is the queen of drama. I swear she’s going to be an actress when she’s older, so I’ve been picking up a few tips from her.
Are you in it to win it?
I have a competitive side, but I’ve tamed the demon inside of me. I just want to see everyone do well. Everyone brings something special to this show, so I’m really excited to see what everyone’s got.
Dancing on Ice is on Sunday, 6pm, ITV
