Dancing On Ice’s Faye Brookes says gruelling training has ‘drastically’ changed her body

SHAPIN' UP

CORRIE fave Faye Brookes has got herself in great shape ahead of her Dancing On Ice debut tonight.

The actress, 33, has revealed how the gruelling training sessions with pro partner Hamish Gaman, 37, have “drastically changed” her physique.

She added: “I’ve got a dancer’s background but I haven’t been dancing for a while because of everything that has been going on the past year.

"I’m up for the challenge and I’m 100 per cent eat, sleep and breathing ice skating — but you don’t see the changes until you put on different clothes.

“You’re like, ‘Oh my god, I feel I’ve toned, everywhere’.”

Faye, who played Kate Connor in the ITV soap before quitting in 2019, has had support from former Corrie pals who have appeared on the show, including Jane Danson, 42, and Brooke Vincent, 28.

She added: “I’m still in the Corrie girl group chat. We support each other through everything.”

Faye has been dating personal trainer Joe Davies since last January after her split from Pop Idol singer Gareth Gates, 36, in 2019.

She said: “Joe’s there with a foot rub at the end of the day.”

Faye’s odds of winning the show have been cut from 8-1 to 2-1.
