Uh! Rachel Stevens, 43, shared her thoughts on her upcoming appearance on Dancing On Ice and admitted she was ‘terrified’
She revealed that the only time she spent on an ice rink was with her children, where she âfalteredâ with them.
She continued, “I’ve danced and performed for years, but doing it on the ice means starting from scratch.”
âBut I can’t wait to go and have fun – and I love working with Brendyn. He is simply lovely and such a brilliant teacher.

Rachel was forced to defend herself after being accused of having an advantage due to her stage experience.
She previously told The Sun, âThey said the same thing when I did Strictly. I’m not a dancer by training, so getting into this area was totally out of my comfort zone and a different way of playing.
