Dancing On Ice 2013 funnyman Joe Pasquae has admitted he was so shocked to feel muscles on the bum he went to the doctors!
The telly comic revealed he feared being ill after finding a growth on his bum after three months of training for the show.
He said: “In all seriousness, I went to see the physio and I said, ‘I’m a little bit worried. I’ve got a growth on my bum’. Sharon, our wonderful physio, said, ‘Let me have a look’ and she went, ‘It’s a muscle!’
“I said, ‘But it’s never been there before’. And she said, ‘You’ve never done this sort of exercise before!’”
Joe has been a bit hopeless on the ice so far, but the training has still helped him shed the pounds.
“The skates weigh a couple of pounds each and you’ve got those on for ten hours a day on the Saturday and Sunday," he told The Sun today. “I’ve lost three inches off my waist. I can get into suits I’ve not worn in ten years!”
And Joe joked: “I’ve started to wear David Beckham pants now rather than TK Maxx ones! But Mrs Pasquale’s not bothered.
“After 26 years, I wouldn’t worry on that front.”
Despite getting next to no points from the judges, Joe's yet to be in the bottom two and is now taking on more riskier moves.
He revealed to the tabloid: “We’ve been doing lifts now and nobody expected it — least of all me.
“She’s found a certain way of holding her body and I’ve strengthened my shoulder.”
Dancing On Ice 2013 will air live from London tomorrow night on ITV.
