She's one of the stand-out talents on this year's Dancing On Ice - and it seems that Laura Hamilton was determined to stand out during her work out today too.

Not only was the children's television presenter having a personal training session in broad daylight in the middle of a park, despite the freezing weather, she carried out a bizarre public clothes-changing display.

The 28-year-old changed into a skimpy blue vest top which showed off her frilly bra as she stepped out of the rink to be put through her paces by middleweight boxing champion Darren Barker.

Quick change: The childrens' TV presenter couldn't decide between a pink or blue skimpy vest top so changed half way through her work out


We can see you: A nearby tree was not quite wide enough to hide behind as she changed 

However, the odd thing was, her previous top was an equally skimpy vest top, only in pink.

Still, there's been no confusion about the progress of Laura through the ranks on Dancing On Ice however.


The previously novice skater presents morning show Wake Up World on childrens' cable channel Nick Jr, but with help from partner Colin Ratushniak, has consistently found herself near the top of the leaderboard since the show began last month.

Perhaps because of her superior skills compared to some of her competitions, Laura also defended Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner on This Morning earlier today.

She said: 'That's his job. He's there for a reason. I try not to take it too much to heart, to be fair.'

The star - who boasts on her official website that she's also been a property developer since she was a teenager - said that she hoped being on Dancing On Ice would lead to more high profile jobs.


Not shy: Laura seemed quite happy to show off her skills in the open air

She told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on today's This Morning: 'Obviously you are growing a wider fan base - everybody is - from being a part of the show."

Laura also said she hoped to follow in the footsteps of Dancing On Ice hosts Holly and Phillip who also both started out on children's television.

She said: 'I've worked in television for nearly eleven years. I worked behind the scenes for five years and then got into children's presenting.

'So it's great working with Holly and Phil who also s So it's great working with Holly and Phil who also started as children's TV presenters and a natural progression like that would be amazing.'


Scoreboard: The pair landed the second-highest mark of the competition last weekend - just 1.5 points behind Sam Attwater and Brianna Delcourt
