Dancing On Ice 2013: Oona King wants David Cameron on the show and blames herself for Mark Hanretty fall
Oona King has admitted that she would like to see the Prime Minister on Dancing On Ice next year.
The former MP and Labour politician was eliminated from the ITV show on Sunday night, after finding herself in the skate off against rugby star Gareth Thomas. She thinks bosses should recruit more people from the Houses Of Parliament for the next series but mused that Mayor of London Boris Johnson would be unable to master ice skating.
Oona told The Mirror:
“I’d like to see David Cameron. Let’s see what he can do on ice.”
“Boris Johnson falls over on dry ground so wet ice would be a catastrophe for him.”
King’s elimination was one of the most dramatic of the series, as just as she was about to perform her save me routine, her partner Mark Hanretty fell. He dislocated his shoulder and needed immediate medical attention but bravely opted to go on with the show and perform with the Baroness.
It didn’t change how the judges voted and they sent Oona home anyway and speaking to the newspaper, she claimed the fall and the injury was all her fault, saying:
“I hit his blade. It was my fault.”
She added: “I’ve never been as scared as I have been about going on Dancing on Ice.”
Mark is keeping his positive head on and has been tweeting his fans and followers to let them know he’s ok. He backed Oona last night, writing:
“Oona is a wonderful lady & despite the injury, DOI has been yet again a fab experience for me:)”
“Patched up and popping painkillers now!:)”
