Chesney Hawkes

Age: 40

Professional partner:  Jodeyne Higgins
I'm throwing myself into it 100% percent…well as much as I can with 3 jobs and 3 kids.

Singer Chesney Hawkes admits he’s not afraid to bare his chest in a skating outfits for the new series of Dancing On Ice. 

With the full backing of his family, Chesney says he’s ready to embrace the tight spandex outfit and has challenged the costume team to ‘bring it on.’

Chesney says, “I'm trying not to think about the live shows! I guess the thing I'm most looking forward to is having my kids there. I'm really excited to see their little faces watching daddy in spandex!   I had a meeting with the costume designer and he asked if there was anything I wouldn’t like to wear and I was like 'No! Bring it on!'  He then asked, 'so you don't mind showing a bit of breast?' and I was like 'no not at all!'

The singer revealed he was shocked to find out family friend and Britain’s number one female skier Chemmy Alcott will also be taking part in the series. 

He said, “Chemmy and I are mates, she's friends with my wife. Obviously we're not allowed to say anything, so my first day at the rink I saw Chemmy and I said 'what are you doing here?' and she said 'DOI, what are you doing here?', 'DOI'!

Chesney continues, “We often banter about who is going to win, Chemmy jokes that its going to be her but she doesn't realise the power of the hawk.”

Chesney’s biggest fear is following in the same footsteps as actor and previous Dancing On Ice contestant Todd Carty and almost have an accident live on national TV.  

Chesney says, “I guess I’m dreading doing a ‘Todd Carty’ really and not being ready technically. I just want to be comfortable and being able to do the steps second nature. It's when you think too much is when it all goes wrong.”

He continues, “The fact is we're all out of our comfort zone here, we're not professional skaters. We're all going to give it our all and our best, and if our best is not up to their standards, I'm sure we’ll get judged accordingly and I'm quite happy to take anything. Plus I'll give as much as I get.”

Chesney revealed that whilst he’s happy with his progress on the ice so far he admits he’s not quite at the standard of last year’s champion, Sam Attwater.

He says, “I can skate backwards now.  I think in the early stages it's about feeling every step, taking baby steps. I think I'm quite good with footwork now, but then you're posture goes out when you're thinking about one thing, which is what happens when you're learning, before it comes second nature.  Unless you're a natural like Sam (Attwater) last year.”
