Good Morning Britain star Andi Peters starred in the first ever series of Dancing On Ice back in 2006, but it seems things weren’t smooth sailing for the presenter.

Andi, 50, made his confession about former Dancing On Ice partner Tamara Sharp while filling in for Lorraine Kelly.

The star spoke to upcoming DOI star Denise Van Outen who is set to take on the rink in January, and discussed his former partner who he “didn’t get on” with.

Andi, who was eliminated in week two, said to Denise: “The partnership is really important as I said. Me and my partner bizarrely all those years ago, we didn’t really get on.

“She used to refer to me to Torvill and Dean as ‘him.’”

Andi then went on to say to Denise: “We’d all be on the ice and she would say to Torvill and Dean, “Tell him, he needs to…” and I was like “I am here!” but I would be stood at the side eating a chocolate bar.”

The TV star concluded the chat by saying: “My partner wasn’t great.”

Andi’s unfortunate experience with his dance partner seems to be a far cry away from Denise’s however, as she’s invited pro partner Matt Evers to live in her family home.

Denise explained in a candid chat with OK! Magazine: “Before I knew who my partner was, I’d already said that if it comes to it, whoever I get partnered with could lockdown with me and stay in our spare room. I’m very happy.”

The blonde beauty also admitted that she “adores” skating partner Matt and that she’s “so happy” that they’re together for the series.

Discussing whether or not she feels nervous about taking part the 46 year old added: “I don’t think people understand and appreciate how hard it is.

“I’ve got to work on my balance. I’m one of those people who has a penguin [skating aid] to keep me upright when I go ice-skating. But I can’t be in front of Torvill and Dean on a penguin! Honestly, it’s so much harder than dancing.”

The star hopes to “get stronger” and improve her fitness during the show, as she told us: “I’d like to get stronger but I don’t want to lose any more weight as, if I’m really honest, I’ve trained loads with a PT since lockdown because of my cabaret show – I knew I had to get into a pair of fishnets!

“I had about three weeks at the start of lockdown where everything went out of the window and we were having barbecues in all that amazing weather. But then I thought, “I need to rein it back in.”
