Dancing on Ice videos

Although I turned down the chance to appear on Dancing on Ice seven years in a row, I finally cracked.  You can see here how I got on.  I managed to stay upright during the live TV performances, but I unfortunately tripped up my lovely partner Mark Hanretty during our Save-Me skate, and dislocated his shoulder.  Ouch. I've since taken up ice-skating and have a lesson every Sunday morning!

I couldn't resist Dancing on Ice

'If you ever see me dancing on TV," Oona King wrote in her diaries, published after the former Labour MP for Bethnal Green and Bow lost her seat in the 2005 general election's bloodiest battle, "I can only apologise in advance." In that first year out of work, she turned down offers to appear on I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here and host her own chat show. The only reality TV programme she "secretly yearned to do," she writes, was Dancing On Ice. Her long-suffering husband joked he would divorce her if she did it. Everyone else said it would "irrevocably ruin" her career.
