Dancing On Ice 2012: Profile of Laila Morse
I can’t wait! I’m looking forward to the sparkles, false eyelashes and the spray tans; we’ll all skate out each Sunday looking like we’ve been tangoed.
Actress Laila Morse maybe the oldest contestant in the competition this series but she’s looking forward to the challenge of learning a new skill.
Having watched former cast mate Danniella Westbrook take part in the series in 2010, Laila can’t wait to finally meeting all of her fellow celebrities.
With training for the series underway, the popular TV actress admits she is ready to embrace the whole Dancing On Ice experience.
Laila says, “My friends and family all think I’m mad, skating at my age but it’s a challenge and they did say they’ll all come down so I’ll have a full house in the audience!”
She continues, “I’m looking forward to being apart of the whole show and especially meeting the other celebrities. I’ve already bumped into Heidi Range from the Sugababes and Andy Whyment from Corrie and we were all chatting about our training.”
The TV star reveals that she’s not fazed by skating live on national TV but is hoping that she doesn’t fall over.
Laila says, “My only worry is if I make mistakes, fall over or trip up. But I’m not thinking about that I’m just going to try and enjoy it. Skating is a lot harder; the professionals make it look so easy!”
As the live shows are fast approaching, Laila is ready to embrace the daring costumes and sparkle associated with the show.
Laila says, “I can’t wait for all of it, the sparkles, false eyelashes and tans; It’s like being pampered! We’ll be skating out each Sunday looking like we’ve been tangoed!”
Laila is teamed with professional skater Lukasz Rozycki and the pair are already forging a strong partnership.
She says, “(Lukasz) is a really nice guy and we get on well. He knows my limitations which helps!
Laila continues, “I remember watching Jayne and Chris performing the Bolero. They are fabulous skaters. It was lovely to watch.”
