Ahead of her first routine this Sunday, Michelle confessed that although she’s yet to attempt the infamous headbanger move, she’s keen to do it in the future.
She added: “I hope that I’m in it long enough to show you all. I will be hopefully attempting it.
“It is something that we’ve spoken about, if I was two inches higher I wouldn’t be thought of.
“It’s literally a height thing so when people don’t do it, it’s not that they don’t want to it’s a height thing and safety.
“So hopeful, in the coming weeks I will attempt it, I haven’t yet!”
Dancing on Ice continues Sunday at 6:30pm on ITV and ITVX.
