Candice Brown is getting ready to skate live on Dancing On Ice 2018 this weekend.
The Great British Bake Off star is one of twelve celebs on the brand new series.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s first show, an excited Candice said: “I am so ready to embrace it. I want all the lipsticks, I want all the feathers, I want all the sequins.
“I love getting dressed up so this is getting dressed up and then some so I’m looking forward to that and the creative side and being able to ask 101 questions to learn all about it. ‘How big a wig can I wear?’ for example!”
Candice says she’s not worried about what the judges will say, including infamously tough Jason Gardiner.
“I like asking questions – what can I do to improve and get better? And it was the same on Bake Off,” Candice explained. “I like to learn new things and I want to know about it. That constructive side of criticism is so important and I will take their feedback on board because I will want to progress.
“I don’t know what I’m doing so if someone is telling me ‘you need to do this to get better’ then I will.
As for whether or not the 2016 Bake Off champ considers herself competitive, Candice said: “I don’t have it in my nature to wish something would go wrong or badly for someone else because that is not how I think.
“At the end of the day it is a competition and you get into it because you would like to progress but I can’t think too much past the first week yet.
“Naturally I am competitive. I love sport, I used to play a lot and I love watching it now. I think I’m passionate more than competitive but of course I would like to do well!”
Dancing On Ice returns on Sunday night at 6PM on ITV.
Legendary skating duo Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be reunited with original hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the show that sees celebrity skaters take to the ice in a bid to dance and dazzle their way to glory.
Torvill and Dean will both sit on a revamped ice panel alongside the formidable Jason Gardiner and choreographer extraordinare Ashley Banjo. ITV Racing’s Matt Chapman will commentate.
Celebs joining Candice on the cast include Love Island’s Kem Cetinay, Corrie star Antony Cotton and X Factor singer Jake Quickenden.
