PICTURES! Dancing On Ice 2013 stars in training for first live show

It's a mixed bag of skills on display in the Dancing On Ice 2013 training rink!

There's just one day to go until the live shows start, and the twelve celebs are still tumbling.

While some seem to be mastering the ice, others can't seem to keep their bums off it.

Twelve celebrities from rugby star Gareth Thomas to TOWIE's Lauren Goodger will be competing in the new series, and one will be kicked off after just one performance during Sunday's results.

Actress Samia said: “I find lifts easy – although I get frustrated with some of the basic moves. Some days you want to cry.”

And Anthea Turner confessed: “I have that older woman mentality – I am scared. It’s like learning to dance on bread knives.

“This is the most difficult show I have ever gone on.”

Meanwhile, favourite Beth Tweddle revealed viewers shouldn't expect big things from her right away.

She said: “We have to have straight legs in gym but on the ice that is the worst thing. So I use a tape recorder in training to tell me, ‘Bend the knees!’ ”
