Whizzing On Ice! Jennifer Ellison takes break from practising her spins as she larks about with partner Dan Whiston

She's no doubt been hard at work practising her figure skating for when she takes to the ice in a week's time.

But we all know the saying about 'all work and no play', something which Jennifer Ellison was clearly determined to avoid.

The actress was snapped having a great time on the ice with her Dancing On Ice partner Dan Whiston yesterday afternoon.

But the pair weren't practising their spins or lifts or any other difficult move ahead of the ITV show.

They instead decided to take some time out from their training and have some fun, even though they didn't stray too far from the ice.

The pair were seen laughing their heads off as they whizzed down an ice slide on inflatable rubber rings at a fairground in Liverpool.

Jennifer clung on to the ring and screamed in delight as she shot down the slide with Dan by her side.

The slide was part of a fun fair in Liverpool city centre which also included an old-fashioned merry-go-round.

Jennifer and Dan couldn't resist a ride and munched on some candyfloss as they each mounted a wooden horse and chatted away as they went round and round.

The pair have been partnered together for the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice which starts on ITV next Sunday evening.

Jennifer has already been seen practising her blade action on the ice as she was given some training by ice skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

And she is in pretty good shape for the gruelling training sessions and hard work after a very strict exercise regime which saw her lose five stone after ballooning from a size 8 to an 18.

This coincided with her new workout DVD called Fat Buster Workout, which went on sale on Boxing Day

The former Brookside star dropped five dress sizes as a result of overhauling her diet and sticking to a strict exercise regime after gaining weight during her pregnancy which she said she struggled to lose afterwards.

Reflecting on her weight gain, she said: 'I got huge. I looked like a hippo.

'I had absolutely no idea how I had ballooned during my pregnancy. All I thought about was eating plenty of food to keep my baby healthy.

'I was pregnant at the same time as Coleen Rooney and Denise Van Outen. Denise seemed to snap straight back into her normal clothes and I remember looking at Coleen and thinking I was always much tinier than her and now she was smaller than me.'
