“I’ve not met the rest of the cast yet, I’ve met Bez and I’ve met Stef [Reid] but apart from that, nobody. We’ll all be getting together soon so I’m really looking forward to that.”
She continued: “I’m looking forward to so much [about the experience], just getting to be able to skate so I can chase the kids this Christmas.

“I’m not a trained dancer so going into that was totally out of my comfort zone and a different way of performing.
“Now add the ice element to it and it’s a whole new ball game.”
Love Island’s Liberty also discussed training at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards, telling OK!: “I have been busy but I’m focussing on Dancing on Ice training, doing that Monday to Friday. Trying to get good, it’s harder than people think!
“I’m enjoying it, me and my mum have been watching the show for years and I’ve always loved ice skating but, yeah, you have to sort of forget what you know and sort of start over again when it comes to figure skating so yeah, but I’m hoping it goes alright.”
