Dancing On Ice 2013 as scary as the Olympics, says Beth Tweddle

Dancing On Ice star Beth Tweddle has admitted she's finding the show just as scary as the Olympics.

The Olympic gymnast cofessed this week that her biggest fear was falling on the live shows and looking stupid.

Fortunately it's so far been so good for Beth, despite a few barbed comments from the judges.

Well, Jason.

Beth said: "For the Olympics, I as really nervous because obviously that was my lifelong dream, but when you're skating, you don't' want to look stupid!"

But she revealed that she's already been left emabrassed by one backstage mishap.

"We had a dry run the other day for Dancing On Ice, and I made a very innocent comment - Christine Bleakley asked me how hard it was to transfer the performance from the gym to the ice," Beth explained.

She went on: "And I said 'It's been quite hard I'm not used to performing with somethng hard and slippy underneath me.'

"The whole studio found it hilarious, apart from me. It wasn't meant like that at all."

This weekend's third Dancing On Ice 2013 live show will see the remaining ten celebs - Anthea Turner , Oona King, Luke Campbell, Joe Pasquale, Gareh Thomas, Beth Tweddle, Samia Ghadie, Matt Lapkinskas, Shayne Ward, and Keith Chegwin - skate for the first time.

But in a twist, they'll face The Duel which first appeared on last year's show.

The celebs will go head to head and five will be made immune from elimination while the others will need the public to save them.
