Joe Swash: Dancing on Ice star helps partially sighted Libby Clegg drive for first time

Dancing on Ice 2020 contestants Joe Swash, 38, and Libby Clegg, 29, took a break from training to go for a drive in Joe’s car today. The former EastEnders star filmed the pair leaving rehearsals as they headed towards his car on Instagram.

He turned to Libby and said: “What’s the one thing you’ve never been able to do because of your sight?”

Laughing, she replied: “Drive.”

Joe then turned back to the camera and told his fans: “Today, I’m going to let you drive my car all by yourself.”

His fellow Dancing on Ice star giggled nervously as she said: “I think your nuts.”

Joe then filmed Libby settling into the driver’s seat, while he sat on the passenger’s side.

He then could be heard saying: “Before anyone goes mad, we’re in Bovingdon Airfield, it’s private land with not a car in sight.”

The presenter added:” “No one knows we’re doing this, so let’s do it before anyone finds out.”

Joe then gave Libby a series of instructions on how to use the brake, accelerator and gear box.

Her show partner Mark Hanretty recently said he forgets about Libby’s condition on the show, due to her coping mechanisms.

Speaking on Lorraine Kelly recently, he said: “I’ve forgotten at inopportune times where I have left Libby and realised she is in the middle of the ice rink and left her stranded, so that’s not the best.”

Elsewhere, Joe has been skating with Alex Murphy in recent weeks after his partner Alex Schauman temporarily pulled out due to an injury.

She has since taken to Instagram to reveal she will be returning to the ice imminently.
