Mummy Diaries star Billie Faiers explained that her biggest Dancing On Ice worry is ending up in a horror fall like her co-star Gemma Collins.
The GC, 39, had competed in the ice skating competition back in 2019 and was partnered with longstanding professional skater Matt Evers.
As the pair glided across the rink to a Celine Dion ballad, the front of the Gemma's skate picked the ice and resulted in a painful-looking tumble as she landed flat on her face.
When recalling the terrifying moment, the reality star told host Holly Willoughby: "I thought I was dead. I literally thought I was dead."
Given The Diva Forever's near death experience, it's no wonder that her on-screen chum Billie is filled with anxiety, thinking she'll end up in a similar position.
Having undergone a few training sessions and becoming more familiar with the ice, the mum-of-three now understands how easily she could also end up catching the ice with her skate.
Speaking to Hello! magazine about her friend's frightful stumble, she said: "Hats off to Gemma Collins for doing it.
"She messaged me supporting me, saying she's really excited to see me."
Opening up about her own fears, she added: "I'm worried about not having control on the ice.
"Gemma picked the ice with the front of her skate, and once you do that there's no going back. I've done it loads in training."
Billie who has been paired and joined a Covid-19 bubble with pro figure skater Mark Hanretty, has already experienced a few nasty experiences on the ice.
Only this week, she shared an adorable picture of herself, alongside her husband Greg Shepherd and her two children, Nelly and Arthur.
Her brood came to cheer her up after she'd been left "crying for half an hour" after a painful incident at rink.
She explained: "Look who came to visit me today.
"Before they all got to the ice rink I had my first bad fall on the ice. I can't believe I actually cried for over half and hour.
"I think my body went into shock and I couldn't stop crying.. and then I was laughing and then I was crying.
"Anyway I'm totally fine… thank you @markhanretty for getting me through that one… I'm sure there will be many more."
