On asking her about her part in the show, she said, remembering one of her childhood memory on ITV morning show Lorraine,”
“I did it [ice skating] for a couple of years until I was about nine. I was in a competition, and I stuck my blades in the ice, the ice shot up like a shard and cut my chin open, so that was the end of my skating career.
“I’m 49 this year, so I haven’t been on the ice for 40 years. I was scared, the ice was glossy, and I thought, ‘oh, that’s when I fell,’ so I had a flashback.”
Lisa is very much undoubtedly excited as well as nervous to be a part of the show.
