Kem Cetinay reveals Dancing On Ice anxiety

Kem Cetinay says his "Dancing On Ice" anxiety was the worst the show's producers have ever seen.

The former "Love Island" star is now the digital host for ITV's figure skating competition for the current series after appearing as a contestant last year - when he finished in fourth place - and he has admitted he even had to lock himself away because of his overwhelming nerves.

Speaking to the latest issue of OK! Magazine, he said: "You have to push me off the rink normally, but doing it in front of a camera, I got the worst anxiety.

"ITV said I had the worse nerves they'd ever seen. I wouldn't talk to anyone and I'd lock myself in my room. I don't get nervous about hosting though, that's just fun!"

Last month, the 22-year-old star apologised to contestant Gemma Collins after claiming that she had been late to rehearsals for a group performance because she was "having a nap", and revealed she'd left a live show early because she was "bored".

However, Gemma insisted she hadn't done anything she was accused of and her good friend was later said to have apologised to her.

A source said at the time: "Gemma was so upset after watching "This Morning "- there are plenty of things that go on behind-the-scenes during the making of a show but she's been purposefully singled out.

"She was accused of having a nap during a dress rehearsal but that wasn't the case - she asked whether there would be time for one and was told there wouldn't be.

"Kem and her are good friends and it felt like he'd betrayed her by making the comments he did, which he's since massively apologised for.

"But Kem was only doing his job as "Dancing On Ice" digital presenter and part of that is revealing what goes on when the cameras stop rolling."
