Dancing On Ice 2013: Matt Lapinskas is not scared of the judges!

Matt Lapinskas (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 star Matt Lapinskas has declared he's not worried about the judges.

The Eastenders actor has been training with Brianne Delcourt ahead of Sunday's first live show, but he's not nervous.

The hunky telly star boasted this week: "Brianne weighs about 2st, it’s like lifting a puppy.

“She laughs at me a lot though – when I fall over she just says: ‘Man up.’ But she already feels like my older sister.”

With Jason Gardiner back on the panel this year, the celebs can expect some harsh feedback, but Matt insists to TV Magazine: “I’m not worried about the judges.

“I can take constructive criticism, but if Jason is just plain nasty they might need security there.”

But Jason warned this week that won't be going easy on the stars even if it's their first time performing live.

"I just call it as I see it," he said. "You know what to expect!"

However Matt himself declared: "I will answer back. I am not afraid. I am prepared for the highs and lows – you can work really hard and the judges can kill you for it.”

Dancing On Ice starts on Sunday night at 6:30PM on ITV1.
