Attwater: I'll be pranking on ice!

Sam Attwater can't wait to embark on the Dancing On Ice live tour - so he can play practical jokes on his fellow contestants.

The ex-EastEnders star, who skated to victory on the ITV show last month, is taking to the road with pro-skaters and celebrity competitors from April 9.

"It's going to be a lot of fun. I think there's going to be a lot of jokes going on so that's going to be good," Sam revealed.

"I've got a few practical jokes already planned. I'm going to be swapping the tan bottles to make sure everybody's a different colour, all sorts."

The former soap star said there hadn't been much time for pranks during the tense weekly live shows.

"Towards the end of each week you've got so much pressure on and so many nerves and all the rest of it that people can't think of anything else but their routine," he added.

And Sam remained tight-lipped over whether any romance could blossom on the tour bus with finalist and close pal Chloe Madeley.

He teased: "I've said before, Richard and Judy would be great in-laws.

"Chloe's an amazing friend to me and hopefully I have been to her. She picks me up whenever I'm low and I pick her up. She's a great friend."
