Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, the 38 year old said: "It's petrifying, but I'm an adrenaline junkie and I trust Andy completely.

"I have to practise with a helmet, everything we're doing on the show is dangerous. I was buzzing after practising. It's just so much fun."

The stunt sees the male partner spin their female partner around by their ankles, with the person's head just inches away from the ice.

The headbanger has been performed by previous celebrities including Jorgie Porter and Beth Tweddle.

However, former skating professional Pam O'Connor was left needing stitches after the stunt went wrong when David Seaman dropped her on her head in 2011.

"I've never weighed myself. All I know is that I feel really good. I'm in the best shape of my life.

"The costume department tell me off because I keep losing weight and they have to take in my outfits," Rebekah shared.
