Mollie Gallagher is struggling to train for 'Dancing On Ice' while filming on 'Coronation Street' because she can't find a nearby ice rink.
The 25-year-old actress - who plays Nina Lucas in the ITV soap - has revealed it's a challenge trying to find somewhere to rehearse her moves in between working 12-hour days on 'Corrie' - but she's determined to do her best.
She told The Sun newspaper: "I love being busy. It's [difficult] when you’re up north and you can’t find a rink!"
Fellow soap star Carley Stenson - who previously played Steph Cunningham on 'Hollyoaks' - is also taking part in 'Dancing On Ice' this year and she says she understands Mollie's dilemma.
Carley added of Mollie's gruelling schedule: "I don’t know how Mollie’s been doing it. She's doing 12hr days filming and trying to skate. And then finding a rink to try and skate ... Finding a rink, finding the hours to fit, and you’re only allowed to do two hours a day. You feel like you only, mind the pun, find your beat after an hour, and then you’ve only got an hour left."
John Fashanu became the first celebrity to be voted off 2023’s ‘Dancing on Ice.' on Sunday night (22.01.23).
The former footballer, 60, compared being ditched from the show to an FA Cup final, and joked he may go on to teach people how to skate. He lost out on Sunday’s (22.01.23) show after gaining the least points from the judges after his performance, and failing to get enough votes from the public in a skate-off against Ekin-Su Culculoglu – who landed herself in the bottom two by receiving the least amount of public votes.
