Jennifer Ellison finds the prospect of wearing skimpy outfits on 'Dancing On Ice' "daunting".
The 28-year-old actress - who is partnered alongside professional skater Dan Whiston on the ITV1 show - admitted knowing she would be flashing the flesh in miniscule outfits made her particularly keen to shift the final few pounds of baby weight, after giving birth to her son Bobby in February 2010.
She told the Liverpool Daily Echo newspaper: "I must admit it was a bit daunting thinking I was going to be on national television showing off my body in tiny bits of fabric.
"And I really didn't want to be covering myself up in long skirts and worrying if my bum looked big rather than doing the best I could."
However, Jennifer could find appearing in the celebrity skating competition may help her to shed even more pounds, as Sugababes singer Heidi Range recently explained she is thrilled with the effect the gruelling training regime has had on her figure.
She said: "I've found that to help with the skating it's good to work on your core. For a number of the moves, you have to hold yourself from the stomach. Your stomach muscles have to be strong. I've got aches in random areas that I never knew I'd have an ache in."
