Dancing On Ice: Contestants and professionals have their fake tan done by Fake Bake ambassador James Harknett [Dancing On Ice]
Celebrities including Brooke Vincent, Kem Cetinay and Lemar Obika have all joined Dancing On Ice in a bid to become the next big ice skating star.
From scary moves including the headbanger to the fancy new sequin outfits, 2018 with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield is bigger and better than ever.
And one thing that is definitely going big this year is the dancing star’s fake tan, created by celebrity favourite, Fake Bake.
However, with a whole lot of ice to deal with and of course, sweat – the number one enemy for fake tan – star’s such as Donna Air and Jake Quickenden are not only fighting against skating injuries, but the dreaded streaking beauty malfunction.

Talking to OK! Online exclusively, James Harknett revealed the ultimate hack to avoiding fake tan streaks – and it’s genius.
James told us: “Ice skating is one of the most strenuous and physical sports. Sweating, even on the cold ice is inevitable, which is not kind to tanned skin.
“The celebs and pros are using Fake Bakes oil free coconut moisturiser to help lock in their colour and avoid a patchy break up of tan.”
Convincing the Dancing On Ice stars to get the glow, James added: “Luckily there are no worries with using self tan on the ice.

“I just let each skater know the golden rules for a perfect tan. Keep hydrated, avoid long bathes and keep showers cooler than usual. Pat dry the skin and moisturise generously.”
Using Fake Bake’s original professional spray tan solution, James worked with head of makeup on the Dancing On Ice team to ensure the contestants got the most out of their look naturally.
“It’s essential for contestants to shine on the ice,” James added.
“Therefore tanned skin compliments the theatrically of the costume, make up and staging.
