Suzanne Shaw has revealed she decided to take part in Dancing On Ice all stars for her late father.
The Hear'Say singer is one of fourteen stars to have returned to the show for a final series this month.
Suzanne had originally competed in the 2008 series, which she won with pro partner Matt Evers.
She confessed that one of her main reasons for returning to the ice this year was for her dad, who died in 2012.
“I am really gutted as Dancing on Ice was my dad’s favourite job I ever did and he will be looking down on me when I go out on the ice. I will get emotional," she explained. “He was there every week with a big beam smiling on his face. My stepmum told me that he would have a glass of wine afterwards and put on his earphones and re-watch the show.
“He did it every night and that is really sad to think about.”
Suzanne, who topped the scoreboard at the weekend, added: “He died just over a year ago now and it is really tough. He was only 61.
“It will be very poignant. It is one of the big reasons why I decided to do it. I would have called him for his advice and I know he would have said ‘go on, do it’.”
Dancing On Ice 2014 continues this Sunday night on January 19 on ITV.
