TV host Trisha is one of the many celebrities who has signed up to try her hand at ice skating and after months of training will be joining professional ice skater, Lukasz Rozycki, in the hopes of impressing the judges and starting her journey to the final. However, the odds are definitely not in her favour as she is the favourite to be booted off the ITV show first.
Tonight will see magician Ben Hanlin, singer Ian ‘H’ Watkins and presenter Joe Swash dancing to stay in the competition.
They will also be joined by Coronation Street actress Lisa George, Diversity’s Perri Kiely and Trisha.
The remaining celebrities will skate next week, but for now these six contestants will currently be warming up and undoubtedly full of nerves.
Will they be able to keep their nerves for the first live show tonight though?

Trisha will certainly be hoping she can stay calm as from tonight’s performers, she is the favourite to be eliminated first.
Bookmakers Ladbrokes have revealed of winning are at a disappointing 25/1.
However, Maura Higgins, who is best known for her time on Love Island is favourite to lift the trophy with odds of 6/1.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Punters haven’t even seen Perri on the ice yet but he’s already the one to beat this year.”
As Trisha tries to focus on her own performance, the other celebrities have been trying to avoid Perri Kiely train.
Maura explained: “Perri is like a professional we pretend he’s not in the competition because no one is going to compete with him.”
His odds of winning are at 5/4, making him the shortest priced favourite ever at this stage of the series.
As viewers will know, one of Perri’s co-dancers in Diversity, Ashley Banjo, is also a judge on the show, so will this play in Perri’s favour or is he set to be judged at a much higher level?
