Ray Quinn - DaybreakRay Quinn has admitted that he is “blagging” his way through Dancing On Ice and doesn’t see himself competing in the next Winter Olympics.

Quinn is currently participating in the ninth and final series of the ITV celebrating skating show, which is an all stars special bringing together celebrity skaters who made an impression during earlier runs.

Chatting to Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones on Daybreak earlier today, Ray admitted:

I’m definitely blagging it… You’re living on the edge on the skates… There’s so much to think about… It either happens or it doesn’t, that’s the thing.

And on his feelings about being one of the favourites to win the competition, Ray revealed:

I try not to think about it to be honest, the nerves are there anyway and you’re anxious about going out and doing something that’s out of your comfort zone anyway so there’s a lot to think about…

It sounds stupid but I live like a dog, I live in the moment so I live in what is happening now and what I need to do now and then once it’s done it’s in the pocket.

Although he never started skating until he took part in the show, Ray said he has “always had a passion for it” and used to watch the sport with his parents as a child, adding that “having Chris and Jane as mentors for me was just a dream come true.”

On how it would feel to win the show, Ray said:

It would mean the world to be the champion of champions, that would just be insane… It’s been such an experience even more so than the last time I did it. I’ve made great friends and I’ve learnt a good skill. It’s on the CV!

Daybreak airs weekdays from 6.00am on ITV, while Dancing On Ice returns to ITV on Sunday at 6.15pm.
