Christine Bleakley is planning to do as she's told on 'Dancing On Ice'.

The axed 'Daybreak' presenter - who has taken over from Holly Willoughby on the ITV1 show - admitted producers are keen for the series to "carry on as it has been", and so her co-host Phillip Schofield will be taking the helm.

She said: "They're massive shoes to fill. I know everyone loves watching Holly, so all I can say to anyone that might be apprehensive is, you've got the biggest fan in the world taking over so hopefully that will come across.

"He will run the show obviously. I will do as I'm told because he knows how it works and I'm happy that's the case, because it's massive show and you want it to carry on as it has been."

However, Christine explained she is most nervous about being confronted with the ice as she is "absolutely hopeless" on skates.

She added in an interview with new! magazine: "I've been ice-skating maybe four or five times and I can just about stand up! A couple of years ago I did an interview with Torvill and Dean which involved skating and I was absolutely hopeless.

"And there's a fear factor - you can actually fall and crack your head open!"
