Christine Bleakley initially found hosting 'Dancing On Ice' "strange".
The presenter has joined Phillip Schofield on the show following the departure of Holly Willoughby - who quit the ITV1 skating show to join BBC's 'The Voice - and because she was such a big fan of the contest, Christine admits it was quite surreal finding herself on the set
Speaking to Phillip and Holly on ITV1's 'This Morning', she said: "I am loving it. As you guys know I've watched the series for years, with you two obviously, and then suddenly when you're plonked into the middle of it.
"It was strange for the first couple of weeks - it just felt odd because I kind of felt that I know all you people, but I don't."
As well as working on 'Dancing On Ice', Christine is planning her wedding to footballer Frank Lampard but admits they are finding it difficult to find the time to tie the knot.
She added: "We will get married... We definitely are - when, is the problem. Ideally we'd love to do it sooner rather than later, but it's a case of fitting it in.
"We are quite easygoing anyway, and when it happens it happens. It will be a relatively personal kind of smallish affair."
