Laila Morse says her 'EastEnders' alter-ego 'Big Mo' Harris would think she was ''mad'' for appearing on 'Dancing On Ice'
Laila Morse says her 'EastEnders' alter-ego would think she was "mad" for appearing on 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 66-year-old actress - who plays 'Big Mo' Harris in the BBC One soap - explained her bolshie character wouldn't understand her motivations for wanting to appear on the ITV1 celebrity skating show.
She explained: "Mo would think I was mad - she'd say, 'Why do you wanna go and do that for?!'"
Laila - who will be skating alongside professional ice dancer Lukasz Rozycki - admitted while the outfits she has to don on 'Dancing On Ice' are "beautiful", she won't be revealing too much because she is a "buxom bird".
She added in an interview with Reveal magazine: "The dresses are beautiful, but some are quite skimpy. I'm a bit of a buxom bird, so I don't want too much on show. But I'm not nervous about what I'll wear, I'm more worried about the routine and making sure I don't go t*ts-up!
"I like all the sequins and getting your hair and nails done. I like getting dressed up and I'm partial to the odd spray tan!"
