Gemma Collins taking no chances on Dancing On Ice

Gemma Collins has insured herself before her appearance on the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice.

The reality TV star, who escaped serious injury after she fell through a hole in the stage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards last year, said she is not taking any chances with hurting herself.

Arriving at the Pride Of Britain Awards, she told the Press Association: “I’ve got myself insured so I’m insured for quite a bit so if it did happen then it would sort of be a blessing in disguise.

“Just in case I damage the body of the GC. I’m not worried so if I was to fall I’ll be all right.”

Collins added her training was going well, saying: “I’m really enjoying it, it’s two hours’ training a day and despite what everyone is saying I’m having fun.

“It is a challenge. I was flexible to start with, I’m so flexible already just by doing my 30 hours and next week I meet the pros so I’ll get to know who my partner is.

“I think if you can dance in your head you can dance on the ice and we all know that I think I’m Beyonce behind the scenes so yes, I’m going to be fine.”

Dancing On Ice will return to ITV in 2019.
