Joe Pasquale has been getting boxing tips from his former 'Dancing On Ice' co-star Luke Campbell.
The comedian wants to follow in the Olympian's footsteps and has been picking up top training tips from Luke, with the pair even setting up a punchbag backstage at the ice-rink where the pair train for the BBC One show.
Joe - who was voted off 'Dancing on Ice' on Sunday (10.02.13) - said: "I love boxing. I've been doing it for years. I like to do things I'm scared of. I'm going to go boxing with Luke - he's going to come down to my gym. I'm looking forward to that."
The funnyman also admitted he was relieved to be axed from the competition on because the tight bejeweled shirts he wore chaffed his nipples so much that he had to cover them with uncomfortable corn plasters.
He explained: "They stick quite hard and when you pull them off, it looks like I've got a Polo mint around my nipples."
Joe also struggled with the wardrobe's insistence that he wear a thong to make his skin-tight costumes look streamlined.
He said: "I didn't enjoy that at all. It's one strap up your bum ... you can't wear pants because Wardrobe aren't happy if it ruins the lines of the costumes."
The star has tipped Gareth Thomas to win the competition, and former 'EastEnders' actor Matt Lapinskas and Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle to also be in the final three.
