Chloe Madeley is panicking over the latest 'Dancing On Ice' challenge, which will see her choreograph and perform a routine without partner Michael Zenezini by her side
Chloe Madeley is terrified about performing a solo routine on 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 23-year-old TV personality - daughter of legendary presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan - was upset when ITV1 producers revealed contestants will have to choreograph and perform a routine without their professional partners this Sunday (20.03.11), as she doesn't think she can cope without professional skater Michael Zenezini.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Chloe finds it hard to control her nerves at the best of times but the one person who can calm her down is Michael.
"But on Sunday he won't be by her side to keep her strong. Chloe is terrified she won't live up to her usual standard without him."
Under-pressure Chloe - who has topped the leaderboard for the past two weeks - has previously revealed she has been so "overwhelmed" by the anxiety of performing live on 'Dancing On Ice' that she has enlisted a specialist to help her cope with her panic attacks.
She said: "Doing a show like 'Dancing On Ice' can get quite overwhelming. Recently, I started having a panic attack in the middle of my routine live on air. As soon as it ended, I ran off crying. I thought to myself, 'That cannot happen again.'
"So I've started to see someone who is basically helping me to not have a panic attack again and it's really working."
