Heather Mills has revealed that she is considering skating on one leg, on this year’s series of Dancing On Ice.
At the press launch of the show today the amputee said:
“The main thing Matt and I are most concerned about is that because of all the hard work and long hours, there’s a lot of pressure that you have to put on the artificial leg to do things and sometimes I just can’t get my leg on.
“So we may have to get creative, because if for some reason I can’t get my skate leg on for the day of the show, we’re going to need a routine prepared where I do the whole thing on one leg, which would be interesting.”
Mills added that she hopes to inspire fellow amputees with her performance.
“I just hope me being on the show raises a lot of awareness and challenge people’s preconceptions of disability,” she said. “Because let’s face it, everyone is just a banana skin away from disability when you think about it, whether they know it or not.”
