Dancing On Ice 2013: Joe Pasquale dreading Valentine's week

Joe Pasquale (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice star Joe Pasquale has confessed he's dreading tonight's latest live show.

Joe and the remaining celebs will be performing romantic routines for a Valentines special.

But Joe is still recovering from being ill, and is worried about about the theme.

"I was so ill with shingles last Sunday, I feared I might not be able to do my routine. I was just chuffed to get through another week," he said. "I always think I am going to be in the bottom two, so it’s a huge relief when I get through. I have to again thank the people who have been voting for me. I really do appreciate it."

Speaking to the the Daily Express, Joe continued: "I’m now feeling a lot better. I’m still on painkillers but the rash has gone down, so I feel a lot better going into tonight’s performance.

The theme tonight is Love Week, which I was dreading because I am not a big romantic type, so I thought “how can I sell romance, that is not me”, but this is where the genius of Christopher Dean comes in.

"I was expecting a big Mariah Carey ballad, but he has given me a song which is right up my street. The choreography is difficult, I have a lift that I have not done before, but at least the number suits my personality."

And Joe added: "I love it, I really do, so I’m determined to stay in the show as long as I can – as much for my professional partner Vicky Ogden as for myself.
