Chloe Madeley has revealed she wouldn't be too disappointed if she didn't make it any further on Dancing On Ice - because she's scared of skating the Bolero.
The 23-year-old and her fellow contestants Sam Attwater and Laura Hamilton have been rehearsing the iconic routine ahead of the final show on Sunday, when just two of them will get to perform it.
"There's a part of me which is quite intimidated by the Bolero so I wouldn't be too gutted if I didn't get to skate it. I'm going to get in so much trouble for saying that!" Chloe said.
"Winning would just be the most incredible compliment and validation and sense of achievement, but I'm not expecting it. I feel like I have won, I'm in the final."
The TV personality - who will embark on a UK tour with the show after the final - said her parents Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan were a constant source of support, but admitted her father's banner-making skills could be better.
"My dad goes to (stationery shop) Ryman every week, they give him different coloured cards, pens, glitter and he goes home like a five-year-old doing a school project, making the banners. They always look, how can I put it, they look pretty unique but I love it, I love the support that they're giving me, it feels great.
"I'm really lucky that my family have thrown themselves into it the way that they have because the show kind of takes over your life and if I didn't have that support it would be really hard."
