'Strictly Come Dancing' star Suzanne Shaw has admitted the final series of the skating contest is taking over her life as she forces herself to be "disciplined off the ice"
Suzanne Shaw says 'Dancing On Ice' has taken over her life.
The former Hear'Say singer won the skating contest in 2008, and admitted training for the current All-Star final series means she hasn't seen "friends for family" unless they've come to watch the show.
She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I love doing this and I don't want to wish it away but I have had to be disciplined off the ice.
"I've not seen my friends or family at all unless they've come down to watch me skating on Sunday nights.
"Last week I had three messages from friends on the same day, all saying, 'I've not spoken to you in ages.' "
While the show is a big deal for Suzanne, she is still making time for her son Corey, nine, and her mother - although she isn't getting to spend much time with boyfriend Sam Greenfield.
She admitted: "My priorities are skating, my mum and my nine-year-old son, Corey.
"I didn't do anything with Sam for Valentine's Day - I went home after training, put my PJs on and watched some 'Breaking Bad'. Luckily he understands it isn't forever."
