Dancing On Ice star Bez has said he is just hoping to get through the show without injuring himself.

The Happy Mondays star - who made history as the first ever celebrity contestant on the ITV ice-skating show to compete wearing a crash helmet – said he has already taken several tumbles when he's been at the rink.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, he said: “I'm so accident prone, and the ice is so slippy, I am always going down.

"I fell down the other day and landed on the only part I didn't have pads on, I couldn't believe it!”

"The main thing for me is to get through it without injury,” he said.

Bez added that he wears “every pad you can think of” when he is on the ice, which he says has saved him from getting really hurt.

Despite having a few falls, the star said he is loving the whole Dancing On Ice experience.

“I have enjoyed every moment of it up until now,” he told host Lorraine Kelly.

Bez, 57, lost out on some time at the rink after testing positive for COVID-19.

The percussionist, whose real name is Mark Berry, tested positive earlier this month and had to miss some training.

He told the Daily Star that he was “gutted” about it.

But on Lorraine he shared that being at home does not keep him from honing his skills, as he works on his moves in the bathroom by sliding around on the lino in his socks.
