Jennifer Ellison

Age: 28

Skating partner:  Daniel Whiston

I couldn't cook when I went into Hell’s Kitchen and I did pretty well at that. I just need to learn to skate and I will be OK.

Actress and self confessed Dancing On Ice fan, Jennifer Ellison is thrilled to be taking part in the new series. 

The actress reveals that she and her family have watched previous series and it was her mum that convinced her to take part. 

Jennifer says, "As a family Dancing on Ice is something that we all love. Every year we all sit there on the sofa and watch it. I'm always saying 'I'd love to do that one year', and my mum is always saying you should but my husband is like 'no, no she will break every bone in her body and lose her teeth!'"

She continued, "Having a dance background (to me) Torvill and Dean are icons. I remember when I was doing a modern dance championship and my mum copied one of the costumes that Jayne wore a year after the Bolero. My version didn't look very good but I thought it was fabulous."

The mum of one is relishing the challenge and says the show is helping regain her fitness. 

Jennifer says, "It's a huge personal challenge because I seem to have just been a mum for and I've loved every minute of it. It's funny because I've said to myself I need to get back into work.”

She continues, "I used to be very sporty but since having a baby that's kind of all gone and I haven't really been to the gym for a long time. I'm literally starting from scratch, fitness wise. I have put myself on a diet and I'm going to go to the gym. It's a big massive thing personally for me, it's not just about doing a show.

The actress admits that the one thing she is most looking forward to is dressing up each week in the skating costumes. 

Jennifer says, "I am really looking forward to the costumes. I think that's one of the best parts about the show when you watch each week and you see somebody come out and you can see what they are wearing. I'm going to look like a human Girl’s World or Barbie Doll!"  

She continues, "I'm looking forward to learning to ice skate, putting the hours in and trying my best and seeing what results I get. I couldn't cook when I went into Hell’s Kitchen and I did pretty well at that. I just need to learn to skate and I will be OK."
