Head Coach goes Dancing On Ice!

With Dancing On Ice just around the corner, everyone is getting their skate on and releasing their inner Torvill and Dean - including Ian Watkins, commonly known as 'H' from Steps. 

With the live shows due to start in January 2020, Ian has been training hard with his partner Matt, as well as our Viola Head Coach, Tracey Keeble. 

Tracey has been working with 'H' to get him to the best of his ability and they certainly make a great team - take a look at Ian's Instagram posts to see!

We caught up with Tracey to hear more about her time coaching Ian - 

'I have been skating since I was around 9 years old and it is my passion. When I got the chance to work with Dancing On Ice, I was thrilled as I have worked with them previously, teaching former celebrity contestants. I have worked with Joe Pasquale, Jamie Baulch, Gareth Thomas and now for this season, Ian 'H' Watkins. 

I have known 'H' for a while now and we have built a great relationship on and off the ice in the build up to the live shows. When Ian first started, I knew had my work cut out, but with his commitment and determination, he has come on in leaps and bounds and I am confident with his progress. 

Bring on the live shows!'
