Coronation Street star Jane Danson, 40, revealed she has been taking tips from her Dancing On Ice partner’s wife Samia, 36, who competed on the show in 2013. Jane discussed her feelings about being paired with her co-star’s husband and admitted Samia had been in training with them to show her some moves. Jane told press including Express.co.uk: “It’s been really interesting as we’re friends but Samia is my best friend who I’ve known longer, so I’ve got to know Sylvain in a different way. He hasn’t gone easy on me because we’re friends.
She’s actually come down to training a few times and has shown me how to do certain moves.
“He’s a perfectionist and I love watching him dance; he’s really graceful.
“We’ve had a laugh along the way and it’s great for Samia too, as we’re so close so her vote won’t be split between Sylvain and me now!
“She’s actually come down to training a few times and has shown me how to do certain moves.
“Its hard to visualise how a lift goes, so it’s been really helpful seeing her do it.”
Amid training for the first show this weekend, Jane admitted training in rehearsals had left her feeling dizzy.
