Do you remember back in school, there would always be two naughty boys (or girls) who’d have to be separated because they disrupted the class?
Well, exactly the same thing has happened with Dancing On Ice – only this time with two adult celebrities!
Antony Cotton made an appearance on today’s Lorraine, and explained that his co-stars Kem Cetinay and Jake Quickenden are “relentless” with their banter during group training.
But he added that show bosses have come up with a solution to keep the two chatterboxes apart.
Antony, 42 – who plays Sean Tully in Coronation Street – appeared via video link alongside his professional skating partner Brandee Malto.
And the actor seemed in fine fettle as he assured Lorraine Kelly that he’d recovered from the injuries he picked up in the first couple of weeks.
However, he revealed that he and the other skaters have been hit by another obstacle as they prepare to perform this Sunday’s group dance.
The incessant gossiping between Love Island star Kem and X Factor singer Jake!
Antony told Lorraine: “They don’t pay attention, but they’re very good skaters so they get away with it.
“They’re like puppies – they’re relentless and they never stop.”
But according to Antony, Dancing On Ice chiefs have come up with a clever way to silence the two stars.
He said: “We’ve found a way to combat that this week, and in our group dance we’ve split them up and I’m in the middle.”
Antony and Brandee will be skating to a Kylie Minogue song on Sunday, as the show pays tribute to disco music.
And there’s every chance that Kylie herself will be cheering the pair on, as Antony revealed that he’s good friends with the Aussie singer.
He said: “I’ve known Kylie for a good few years now. Her best friend is from Manchester, and that’s how I met her, probably about 20 years ago.”
Dancing On Ice returns this Sunday at 6pm on ITV1.
