New skater Myleene Klass has admitted she has her work cut out ahead of her first performance on Dancing On Ice – because she is “skating like a shrew”.
The musician and presenter, 42, is training hard with Luasz Rozycki ahead of her opening dance.
But in a video on social media she said her skating partner Luasz was telling her off for “skating like a shrew emerging from a hole with his head down”.
But despite the criticism aimed at trying to make her lift her head up, Myleene said “I bloody love this guy” and appreciated his honesty and feedback.
Luckily for Myleene she is part of the second group of skaters and so won't dance this Sunday and has more than a week to perfect her routine.

And she admitted she signed up to push herself to the limits and try new things and send a message to her three children.
She said: “I make sure my children do things that scare them every single day, I push them to discover new challenges, to discover new talents and you can’t discover anything until you put yourself in a situation so I’m going to lead by example on that and give it a good go.
"And they’re just so excited because they’ve never seen me do something new like this and when I first had the conversation with my manager she just said why don’t you do something that you don’t know you can do, why don’t you challenge yourself.
Myleene says the rehearsals are making her nervous
"And then I said I’m SCARED! So, that’s why I feel I should.
"I mean I am so out of my comfort zone. I never even holiday in the cold, I like the heat. If there’s no palm trees I’m not interested! And there are no palm trees on this ice rink."
Myleene also said she hopes training for the show will mean she ends up with a “bum like J-Lo's” and admits she is looking forward to dressing up to go on the ice.

She added: “I’m all about the costumes, I’m all about the music and I thought I was all about being thrown about in the air until Ava (daughter), who does cheerleading, said ‘no, to be able to get up into the air the strength has got to come from you.’
"I want to just try stunts!”
