Heidi Range

Age: 28

Professional partner:  Andrei Lipanov

I’m still going to the gym. I went after my first costume fitting because I thought 'you're going to be in lycra on HD TV!

Sugababes singer Heidi Range admits that she’ll be glad when the nerves she is experiencing whilst training for Dancing On Ice become a thing of the past.

Having performed at some of the UK’s biggest music venues, the pop star admits she really is feeling nervous about her first performance. 

Heidi says “I'd love to get to the stage where I’m performing and enjoying it, rather than just feeling nervous.  Its great now that we’re at Elstree more and we keep bumping into everyone, it's really nice, it's like a little gang now and I’m enjoying getting to know everyone.  I’ve had the chance to spend time with Jennifer Ellison and Jorgie Porter which was really nice.”

Heidi continues, “My friends and family are so excited. I've got a list of people asking if they can come and watch!  Even when I'm training my friends keep coming to watch us and they want to make banners and t shirts!”

The singer admits that she has already noticed a change in her body shape as she embarks on the strenuous training sessions for the series. 

Heidi said, “I’ve found that to help with the skating its good to work on your core. For a number of the moves, you have to hold yourself from the stomach. Your stomach muscles have to be strong.  I've got aches in random areas that I never knew I'd have an ache in.

She continues, “I’m still going to the gym. I went after my first costume fitting I thought 'you're in lycra on HD TV'! Since training for Dancing On Ice I have noticed my body changing shape slightly. My legs and my bottom seem more toned which is good!”
