Jeff Brazier has admitted that he is “in for a shock” when the Dancing On Ice tour kicks off this year.
The TV presenter will fill in for Vanilla Ice on five dates in Newcastle and Birmingham. However, Brazier - who came fifth in the series - said that he is “looking forward” to being reunited with the show’s cast.
“I think I’m in for a shock when I get to rehearsals in Sheffield and skate intensively every day again!” Jeff said in his MSN Blog this week.
““We have skated twice in the last three weeks since the show and it’s fair to say what took us six months to learn can be forgotten in six weeks!
“I’m looking forward to going hard on my body again though because I’ve lost a bit of tightness since the show ended and I want my body back how it was!
“It will also be amazing to see the people I spent so much time with, I’ve missed Sam and Laura quite a bit and I also think Chloe’s partner Michael and I have all the ingredients for a good bromance! He’s a top man.
“Anyway, I hope they’re all behaving themselves and I look forward to the fun stuff and performing our routines in front of many!”
The Dancing On Ice tour - which also features series winner Sam Attwater and runner-up Laura Hamilton - opens at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday.
