Dancing On Ice star Billie Faiers has opened up, confessing that she'd already suffered a number of injuries during her rigorous training sessions for the show.
One wound that could have jeopardised the entire competition for her was when she hurt her back during a nasty slip on the ice.
She's also taken a number of other blows by the sounds of things as she also confessed to having a "huge bruise" on her leg as well.
In spite of her war markings, the mum-of-three had vowed to soldier on like the true trooper that she is, continuing to push herself from her comfort zone in a bid to get a good score on the leaderboard on the ITV favourite.
The reality star recently revealed that she has been partnered with Scottish figure skater Mark Hanretty, who is yet to lift the trophy on the show.
It seems that Mark is keen to ramp things up a gear in a bid to better their chances of winning and it would appear that he is putting the former TOWIE star through her paces on the rink.
Speaking to OK! magazine in a tell-all interview Billie explained the injuries she had sustained as a result of her intense training regime.
Opening up about her war wounds, she said: "Yeah, I've had a few!
"The first part of my training I was being overly careful but I've pushed myself a bit more now.
"I fell over the other day – I've hurt my back and I've got a huge bruise on my leg, but it's going to happen."
It isn't just mishaps in the rink that are starting to take their toll, as the TV starlet confessed that her nerves were starting to get the better of her too.
Billie who only takes to the ice to skate each Christmas with family, is finding the whole experience terrifying as the live shows loom.
She told the publication: "I keep saying to my ice-skating partner, 'I don't know how I'm going to do this.' The live shows, I'm going to pass out – I'm going to be so nervous!"
As the blonde is still filming her ITVBe show with sister Sam, as well as running a home and being mummy to three gorgeous children, she is dedicating mornings to her ice skating tuition but is concerned she'll also run thin on time for everything as the competition gets going.
Although a date for the Torvill and Dean panel show is yet to be confirmed, fans can expect the programme to make a grand return at some point in January, as it has in other years.
