Dancing On Ice 2011 celebrity Kerry Katona has revealed how the tough training regime has been hitting her body hard - covering it with bruises! Speaking to The Sun ahead of tomorrow's first 'real' show in the competition, Katona also confessed that programme had come at "the perfect time" for her.

30-year-old Kerry, who scored 14 points from the judges on her debut performance with partner Dan Whiston two weeks ago, commented: "My body is sore because Dan really grips me. I've got bruises everywhere, two popped ribs and a sore shoulder."

She added: "The show has come at a perfect time and Daniel has played a massive part on and off the ice."

Meanwhile fellow Dancing On Ice hopeful Chloe Madeley has also been having a tough time in rehearsals for tomorrow evening's show, practicing a difficult lift with professional partner Michael Zenezini. The move sees Chloe balance her skates on Michael's legs, requiring very good balance to avoid the blades cutting into her partner's thighs!

Chloe and Michael last week scored the highest female tally of the night, with 16 points of a possible 30.

Dancing On Ice continues on ITV1 tomorrow from 6:10PM.
