Lisa is participating in the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice

Lisa George, who plays Beth Sutherland in Coronation Street, has shared a Dancing On Ice training update to show she's mastered the tricky talent of spinning on ice.

The actress posted a video to Instagram proudly showing her new skill.

She captioned the post: "This week I learnt how to spin!

"I'm so happy I finally plucked up the courage to do it as I was starting to get the fear!

"It might have been a fluke, but will keep trying till it's good every time... this is such an emotional journey for me but I'm loving every minute!

"Tomorrow I'm back with my ice family #dancingonice #corrie #itv #training."

Former Corrie actor Shayne Ward, who played Aidan Connor, wrote: "You go girl!"

Bhavna Limbachia, who played Rana Habeeb until earlier this year commented: "Wowsers!"

Last month Lisa was the sixth contestant confirmed for Dancing On Ice.

Speaking on Lorraine, Lisa revealed she skated when she was a child but after a nasty accident she stopped.

She said: "I did ice skate when I was a child for a couple of years until I was about nine.

"I was in a competition and I fell, I stuck my blades in the ice. The ice shot up like a shard and cut my chin open, and that was the end of my skating career.

"I'm 49 this year so I haven't been on the ice for around 40 years."

Currently on the cobbles, Lisa's character Beth is grieving for her niece Sinead, who passed away from cancer in Friday's episodes (October 25 2019).
