Jorgie Porter keeps wearing multiple pairs of socks because she believes they're bringing her luck in 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 'Hollyoaks' actress - who will compete in the live final of the ITV1 next Sunday (25.03.12) - and her professional partner Matt Evers think her socks are her "lucky charms", but fellow finalists Matthew Wolfenden and Chico are giving her a "wide berth" because they are so smelly.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "All the celebrity skaters start off wearing multiple socks because they claim the skates hurt their feet and they take a while to get used to. Most then go down to just one pair when they feel more comfy.
"However, Jorgie has kept hers on all the time because Matt believes they're lucky charms. But the other semi-finalists think they pong like mad and have been giving her a wide berth."
The 24-year-old beauty - who landed in the bottom two alongside former 'Brookside' actress Jennifer Ellison on last night's show - has previously admitted she and Matt like to perform a "cheesy conga" when they get stressed during training.
Jorgie told BANG Showbiz: "If I get really tense or stressed about something he'll say, 'Come on, let's conga it out', and we'll do a little conga. He knows how to work me which is great. It'll be just the two of us doing a really cheesy conga, it's hilarious.
"Matt is a dream to work with, he's got so much patience. I get really stressed but he looks after me. He's a true gentleman and he helps me out so much. Sometimes he has to remind me that I haven't been skating for very long."
