Dancing On Ice is finally back on our telly screens this January and we can’t wait!
And ahead of the first episode on January 5th, Coronation Street star Jane Danson has opened up on how she feels about being partnered with her best friend’s husband.
The actress is currently training with Sylvain Longchambon who is actually married to her Corrie co-star and BFF Samia Ghadie after the pair fell in love during the 2013 series.
And the 40-year-old has told us she’s loving taking to the ice with Sylvian, but has admitted he definitely isn’t treating her any differently because they’re pals.
“It’s great because the foundations are already there we know each other,” she told us at the Dancing On Ice launch.
“It’s like being at school again. Just because we’re friends doesn’t mean he’s going easy on me.”
When asked whether it was awkward doing romantic routines with Sylvian, Jane added, “No not really because we’re actors we’re so used to being in close proximity to other people.
“While you’re dancing all you’re thinking about is omg is my leg straight are my shoulders down is my leg long so yo’re so busy thinking about the moves.” Fair enough!
As well as chatting about her friend Samia, Jane also opened up on the real reason she decided to join the line up, revealing that she wanted to try something new.
The soap star explained, “I’ve been in Corrie for so long I’ve always been someone else and now my kids are at an age where they’re a little bit more independent, I’ve got some more time to myself.”
“I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago and I thought right it’s a bit if a milestone let’s do it, let’s learn something new. And I just think it’s an amazing challenge and something I’ve always wanted to do.
She then added, “It’s like a personal challenge and I thought they might never ask me again. I’d regret it if I didn’t say yes.”
Well, we’re very excited to see Jane on the ice.
