Shaw skating her way to toned body

Knutsford Guardian: Suzanne Shaw is competing again in the final series of Dancing On Ice Suzanne Shaw is competing again in the final series of Dancing On Ice

Suzanne Shaw has revealed that she has a much more toned body since getting her skates back on for Dancing On Ice.

The former Hear'Say singer is taking part in the final series of the ITV celebrity contest - which has invited back some of its previous stars to compete for the ultimate title.

She told the Daily Star: "I'm showing a lot of flesh. Can you ever really cover up in a Dancing On Ice costume? Not really. I don't know how far they're going to take it. If it was nipple tassels I would draw the line.

"I do feel tighter, toned and fitter. My legs and my bum have toned up but maybe not in the way I would like. I want them to be slim, not chunky, but that's what happens when I train. My muscles build quite quickly because I have an athletic body."

Suzanne, who first competed on the show in 2008, said she liked to do skating stunts but was being careful: " You want to get great scores, you want the audience to vote for you, but you're trying to be careful as it's so dangerous when you fall.

"I'm a daredevil and adrenaline junkie, but also I'm a lot more educated this time so I'm keeping my body strong."

She added: "I'm quite competitive by nature - as a dancer, I've competed all my life. It's more so with myself, though: I love challenging myself and bettering myself. So my competition really is with the person from back in 2008.

"But I'm having fun with it. It's a celebration of Torvill and Dean and 10 years of Dancing On Ice."
