Loose Women panellist and TV presenter Saira Khan has revealed that donning a sequinned leotard in preparation for her forthcoming stint on Dancing on Ice has done wonders for her marriage to hubby Steve Hyde.
The 48-year-old cheekily revealed that getting up close to pro skating partner Mark Hanretty in the rink left her feeling “horny” and ready to heats things up with her advertising agency owner beau once she gets home.
Speaking to OK! magazine she said,”All this skating is making me feel horny!
“When they have to hold you and look into your eyes, you think, that’s what’s missing in my life!
“I go home to my husband and say, ‘I think we need to do some skating.”
Saira and Paul have been married for thirteen years – tying the knot in 2005 just three years after meeting – and have two children, Amara and Zachariah. And despite getting past the classic ‘seven-year-itch’ it seems there’s always room for improvement.
Continuing to gush about the benefits of taking part in the series – which returns to ITV this Sunday – she added:
“You forget what holding hands and looking into somebody’s eyes feel like.
“My bum and thighs have got slimmer, I’m toning up. I’m eating more as I’m burning it all off.”
Saira also went on to reveal that her fellow Loose Women stars were cheering her on, but not before scaring her with their own tales of their time the show.
“But of course, it’s a sisterhood, they want me to do well.”
The TV presenter will be joined show by a roll-call of fellow celebs including Coronation Street actress Jane Danson and former Westlife singer Brian McFadden.
We can’t wait to see how she gets on!
