Andi Peters reveals secret bitter feud with his Dancing on Ice partner as he admits they 'didn't get on'

ANDI Peters revealed her secret bitter feud with his Dancing On Ice partner as he admitted they "didn't get on".

The presenter, 50, took part in the first series of the ITV skating competition way back in 2006.

Andi revealed on Lorraine on Thursday that him and professional partner Tamara Sharp "didn't get on".

Discussing partnerships with upcoming Dancing On Ice star Denise Van Outen, Andi – who is filling in for Lorraine Kelly – said his partner "wasn't great".

He said: "The partnership is really important as I said. Me and my partner bizarrely all those years ago, we didn't really get on.

"She used to refer to me to Torvill and Dean as 'him'."

Andi continued: "We'd all be on the ice and she would say to Torvill and Dean, 'Tell him he needs to…' and I was like, 'I am here!'

"But I would be stood at the side eating a chocolate bar."

He added: "My partner wasn't great."

The presenter took part in the first series of the show but was eliminated in week two.

Denise is set to take part in the new series in January with professional partner Matt Ever.

However, The Sun revealed the series is in crisis as the lack of training means the celebs might not be good enough to compete.

Stars such as Jason Donovan and Myleene Klass have been hampered by rink closures due to the pandemic.

They are currently on a Christmas break and might not be ready when the show starts, two weeks later than usual, on January 17.

Producers hope the extra time will be enough for rookies to catch up.

There have even been discussions about pushing back the series still further, but that idea has now been shelved. 

A source said: “Covid is causing chaos with the Dancing On Ice filming. 

“The practice rinks have all been shut.

“They are public venues and haven’t been given permission to stay open for the show. 

“All of this happened before the Christmas break and the new tier system was announced.

“Thankfully there’s a bit of extra time they can hopefully sharpen up. If not there’s going to be some questionable skating on show.”

The series, hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, also features John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo with Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean returning as judges.
