Ice dance Anthea hails 'best bum'

Anthea Turner has said her stint in Dancing On Ice will have been worth it even if she is kicked off the show this weekend because it has given her "the best bum I've ever had".

The 52-year-old presenter said the tough training regime had helped her look better than ever.

She told ITV1's Lorraine show: "The toning of the body - ice skating - it's skater bum, it's amazing. I don't care even if I crash out on Sunday, I have had three months of the best bum I've ever had since I was somewhere in my 20s. In fact, even in my 20s it probably wasn't this good."

But she admitted her dyslexia had affected her performances, saying: "I think my biggest problem has been - and we've spoken about it - I am dyslexic and dyslexics never know their right from their left. And I've had terrible trouble and the coaches are going bonkers at me going 'Do you know your right from your left?'. 'I do, just give me a moment on this and I'll get it'."

She added: "Learning to skate has been fabulous. I've got bruises everywhere but learning to skate - amazing."
