Dancing On Ice contestant Rachel Stevens – who has been forced to pull out of her first live show – has revealed that her daughters are "putting serious pressure" on her to win this year's competition.
The former S Club 7 star opened up in a conversation with OK! and other press outlets about how her two girls Amelie, 11, and Minnie, seven, are egging her on to take the crown from her competitors.
When asked if they were excited to see their mummy take to the ice for the very first time, the mum of two answered: "They watched the first episode and they are so excited. Now it’s really tangible and they can see it and are getting to know everyone and have their favourites."
The 43 year old continued: "But they are putting serious pressure on me! They’re like, 'Mummy, you have to beat them.' Tough crowd!"
Rachel also revealed that she faces tough competition in their eyes as they have also found some new famous faces from the line-up to cheer on.
The star explained: "They loved Kimberly [Wyatt] and Bez. It’s so cute that they are now getting into it. "

Dancing On Ice 2022 kicked off last weekend (16 January) with the first round of celebrities strapping their skates on to compete. Former Strictly Come Dancing pro Brendan Cole opened the show, dazzling the judges with his performance.
Meanwhile, Bez had to perform wearing a helmet because he'd been falling so much in rehearsals.
Rachel was due to compete as part of the second group of celebrities, but has been forced to pull out after sustaining a fracture to her wrist.
A spokesperson for Dancing On Ice said: "Due to an injury sustained in training and on the expert advice from the Dancing on Ice medical professionals, Rachel Stevens will not skate in this Sunday's show.
"We look forward to her returning to the show next weekend."
Rachel will be back for week three and is excited to be doing something her daughters can experience.
She explained: "My eldest is eleven and Minnie’s seven, so this is the first time that I’ve done anything that they can really come to and be a part of."
