DANCING On Ice’s Amy Tinkler has revealed she’s been secretly training for the show for THREE months.
Denise Van Outen's replacement will join the competition in its third week this weekend - but Amy is more than prepared.
Despite stepping in at the last-minute when Denise was forced to pull out over her dislocated shoulder, the former Olympic gymnast has spent 12 weeks on the ice preparing for this scenario.
She wrote on Instagram today: "For the past 3 months Joe and I have been working super hard as the reserve team for @dancingonice and we’re super excited to say we will be in the show on Sunday!
"We want to wish @vanouten_denise a very speedy recovery, you have been so kind to us and we wish you all the best.
"I can’t wait to show you all what we can do!
"Thank you Joe for being the most amazing partner, you’re the best! Lots of love."
Denise was forced to pull out of Dancing on Ice after breaking her shoulder in three places.
Amy, 21, has been practising as a back-up contestant and no doubt she'll be in good shape considering her gymnastic background.
She will be ready to show off her talent in the rink with her pro-skater partner Joe Johnson.

She was also a member of the GB team at the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow, which went on to win bronze.
She retired from gymnastics early in 2020 after suffering with chronic ankle issues.
