It came after Ekin-Su revealed she already has skating experience before competing on Dancing On Ice.
The Love Island star also claimed one of her strengths is “very competitive”.
Admitting that she used to skate, Ekin-Su said, “I used to skate when I was a kid, but it’s been ages since I’ve skated, you forget, right? During the pandemic I forgot how to walk because we were stuck indoors for two years!”
The reality star, who is paired with Brendyn Hatfield, said: “I’m very competitive. So if I have to rehearse for two hours, I’ll be there for four – I’ll aim for the sky!
Not for long! It came after Ekin-Su revealed she already has some skating experience before competing on Dancing On Ice (pictured with partner Brendyn Hatfield).
“My strengths would be that I am competitive, passionate and quick to learn moves. My weaknesses would be thinking too much and getting impatient. If I can’t do something, I’ll try and try until I can.’
When asked if it was one of the scariest things she’s ever done, Ekin-Su replied, “I’ve never been scared in my life, I’ve never been nervous in my life, I’ve always been confident. I think the only time I would be nervous would be the final. I know I’m going to fall and hurt myself because in life you fall and hurt yourself. I’m done.
When asked if she’s in it to win it, Ekin-Su said, “Yes, I am, otherwise I won’t do it. I don’t mind going home early, but my mind doesn’t work that way. When I do it, I give 100 percent. I will believe in myself, I believe in myself so much.”
Dancing On Ice returns to ITV1 and ITVX on Sunday 15 January at 18:30.
