Ashley Roberts is "itching" to take up ice skating and perform a routine on 'Dancing on Ice' after being inspired by the contestants on the ITV show
Ashley Roberts is "itching" to ice skate after judging 'Dancing on Ice'.
The former Pussycat Dolls singer - who joined the judging panel of the ITV celebrity skating show this year - has been inspired to learn how to ice skate after watching the contestants perform.
Speaking on ITV's 'Daybreak', she said: "I'm not on the ice everyday but it's giving me that itch to get out there. I just see them out there performing and I'm like, 'I want to get out there and do a performance.' "
The 31-year-old beauty also revealed she was "emotional" following Shayne Ward's exit from the show on Sunday night (03.02.13) when he was sent home after landing in the bottom two with 'EastEnders' actor Matt Lapinskas.
She said: "I was really emotional. I didn't expect to feel that because we didn't think they would be in the bottom two.
"We were in total shock and he was just starting to get it. He was in it, he was having fun, he was giving us that fire - and then we had to let him go. So I was pretty upset about it. Matt even stumbled but he was the stronger performer."
