Myleene Klass has admitted that she's terrified she could end up with her piano fingers "sliced off" in a gory accident on Dancing On Ice.
The 42-year-old is set to take part in the hit ITV skating show with professional partner Luasz Rozycki, with the pair showing off their skills in their first performance on Sunday 24th January.
But she's already suffered an injury back in December after tearing her calf, revealing that her "respect for ice dancers has gone through the roof".

Yet classical musician Myleene is even more worried about her hands being injured rather than her legs.
"I’m terrified of all of it!" she confessed. "I’m terrified of my piano fingers getting rolled over.
"I don’t know why that’s a recurring fear but it just is. I think any time I’ve done a concert I’ve had to sign an indemnity insurance clause and I’ve had to sign all of these things that look after my fingers and now I’m actually in the line of fire I feel like I’m really going to have to look after my fingers.
"By the nature of what it is I feel quite protective over my fingers. As a pianist I have to look after my fingers but I also have to life my life and I love the fact that I’m going to walk away with a new skill, new butt and fabulous wardrobe!"

She also opened up about her two daughters, 13 and nine, and their reaction to her taking part in the show this year.
"They’re so excited," she said. "They’re over the moon, so excited. Every day is the same question – when can I tell my friends? So, I think it’s been such a duff year, a rubbish year so to have that positivity for them to look forward to.
"That excitement is everything. 2020 has been a case of batten down the hatches and try get through to the next month. There’s no sparkle for anybody at the moment.
My girls are more aware of what I do now and they saw me going in and out of radio all the way through Covid and they worried for me. I just thought how lovely for them to see me doing something they can get excited about. Ava’s like ‘we’ll come down, we’ll help you!’"
