HOLLY Willoughby wants to do Strictly Come Dancing – but has ruled herself out of appearing on Dancing on Ice as a contestant.
The This Morning host admitted she’s a huge fan of Strictly and would love to follow her co-star Ruth Langsford’s footsteps on the show, if only she could conquer her embarrassment.

She said on Loose Women: “I’m obsessed with Strictly, so I’d love to learn to dance, but I’d be embarrassed to do it on the telly, which would be a problem.”
And Holly ruled out ever skating on Dancing on Ice as she’s just too scared.
Although the 36-year-old beauty is glad to be back presenting the programme, she says there’s no way she’ll slip on a pair of skates and hit the rink.
She explained: “It’s too dangerous! Way too dangerous!”

The This Morning presenter has just reprised her hosting role on the skating show alongside Phillip Schofield but has admitted there’s a lot of the programme she watches with her hands in front of her face because the moves the celebrities are doing are so dangerous and there’s a chance they could lose a finger live on air.
Speaking to the panel today, Phillip said: “Well when they fall down in training, they say ‘if you’re down on the ice, fingers in’ – because they are blades! They can take your fingers off!”
Holly added: “There’s a lot of the show I don’t watch, I have my eyes shut because I can’t watch it!”
Dancing on Ice returned to screens earlier this year following four years off-air but, despite the time that has passed, Holly is certain it still has the feel-good factor.
