Jennifer Ellison admits she feels guilty at having to leave her son Bobby while she trains for 'Dancing On Ice'
Jennifer Ellison feels "guilty" leaving her son to train for 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 28-year-old actress - who is partnered alongside professional skater Dan Whiston on the ITV1 show - finds it tough to leave 23-month-old Bobby because he is "too young" to realise why she is not spending much time with her due to her skating practice demands.
She said: "He's too young to understand that I have to go to work, earn a living. That's when I feel the guilt. But, luckily, I can Skype him every night!"
The blonde beauty had a busy time during the early stage of her skating training because she was also on tour with stage show 'Calendar Girls', and she admits it was a struggle to juggle all of her work commitments.
She told new! magazine: "It has been a huge juggling act for me. For the first eight weeks of training, I was on tour with 'Calendar Girls'.
"Because I was moving around, I had a different coach at a different ice rink each week. I was also doing eight stage shows a week and still trying to be a mum. Some days, I'd travel four hours to an ice rink, then go home, kiss Bobby and then go to 'Calendar Girls'.
