Gareth Thomas loves his skater bum
'Dancing On Ice' star Gareth Thomas is delighted with the change in his physique from training for the show, in particular having a butt like "two chestnuts"
Gareth Thomas says 'Dancing On Ice' has given him a bum "like two chestnuts".
The gay rugby star - who was forced to skate through pain last night (03.02.13) after suffering a foot infection - is enjoying the way the intensive training for the show has changed his physique.
He said: "My ass has changed shape - I've got a skater's ass now.
"You use your bum a lot. It gets rock hard. It's like two chestnuts."
Gareth - who is partnered with professional skater Robin Johnstone - is also enjoying the sparkling outfits on the show, even though he had misgivings at first.
He told The Sun newspaper: "The first time I wore one of the outfits, I looked in the mirror and thought, 'I look like a giant lime covered in diamonds'.
"But when you enter this world of dancing and skating, you realise it's about the whole performance.
"The music, the outfits, the sparkles - they're as important as the skating.
"I never thought in my life I would be wearing leather pants with studs on and sparkles everywhere.
"But actually now I look at myself and think, 'I feel like the dog's b******s right now.' "
And the sportsman admits he can't help but get closer to Robin than their routines call for.
He said: "I've never grabbed more boobs in my life. When I'm lifting her I just grab for anything in front of me and you don't always get your hands in the right place."
