Dancing On Ice 2013: Keith Chegwin loving every minute on the ice

Keith Chegwin (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 star Keith Chegwin has been shedding the pounds on the show!

Keith finally started on the show this year after injuring himself in rehearsals for last yeaar's series.

And despite a hectic schedule and the painful training sessions, he's loving every minute!

"I thought it would be a struggle but there's been no better feeling than skating - it's like trying to go across concrete on razor blades!" he said this week. "I've lost two stone and never had more energy in my life."

The telly funnyman puts a lot of it down to his pro partner Olga, saying: "Olga's great! But I call her the Gremlin from Kremlin as she pushes me so hard! "

The comic has proved a surprise hit with the judges on the ice, but hasn't quite hit it off with the public, being in the bottom two twice so far.

But Keith's not upset about it, saying: "Since being in the bottom two, we have to do twice as much as everyone else. I'm not upset about being in the bottom.

"I quite enjoy showing people the dances we've worked on for our skate offs!"

Keith added: "I've been offered every reality show going, but I did this because I wanted a challenge, I'm loving every minute."
