Anthea TurnerAnthea Turner has revealed her feelings towards her competitors on Dancing on Ice.

‘I’m the oldest of the girls and I feel far more motherly towards them all,’ explains Anthea, 52.

‘I feel protective over Samia but she’s got on with the job and is very professional.

‘I don’t know about a romance there but you have to have chemistry with your dance partner. It makes a massive difference to your performance.’

Meanwhile, Anthea – who survived in last week’s skate off with Lauren Goodger – admits she’s not concerned with winning the competition.

‘I don’t care  if I crash out because I’ve had three months of the best bum I’ve ever had since I was somewhere in my 20s!  In fact, even in my 20s it probably wasn’t this good!’

Dancing on Ice continues on ITV1 tonight at 6:15pm.
