Rink legend Christopher Dean was always a cool natural… at every sport except ice skating.
The Dancing on Ice head judge got his first pair of skates aged 10 and his early efforts involved a lot of falling over.
Christopher, 62, said: “At school I was a natural and I used to enjoy all kinds of sport, football, gymnastics, and so that feeling of movement was always in me. I got a pair of ice skates for Christmas.
“I had never seen an ice rink before and when I got on I fell over a minimum of 200 times.”
