BEN Foden has accused his Dancing on Ice co-stars of “disguising how good they are” to shock viewers.
He warned fans “don’t be fooled” when Rachel Stevens and Connor Ball said they were worried about their performances.
Former rugby player Ben said: “We all worked hard to stay ahead.
“Every year it goes up and this year it’s been pretty good.
“I watched both Rachel and Connor and they humbled themselves in interviews while I was trying to grow up. Maybe it was a mistake.
“Don’t let anyone fool you. Everyone is good. Everyone has their strengths.”
The 36-year-old continued: “Rachel is very gracious, she knows her lines and the position of the camera.
“Connor is a boon of energy – his skating is amazing and I know he’s going to be badass dancing on the ice.
“Everybody is going to be good so everyone is my opponent.”
He joked that he planned to sabotage their performance, saying, “I need to start leaving some beads on the ice if I’m going to get as far as I do in this competition.”
Married Ben left co-star Rachel Stevens speechless this week when he called her “the sexiest woman in the world”.
He likes to flirt with the S Club 7 star because his wife Jackie insists he will “never cheat”.
Ben, 36, is speaking to the press ahead of his debut on the ice this weekend.
When asked what she got as “unique” compared to the rest of the competition, Rachel replied at length before Ben wittily interjected: “That and you are the sexiest woman. in the world, Rachel.”
Ben has two children, Aoife, nine, and Tadgh, six, with ex-wife Una.
He was unfaithful to the The Saturday singer, later admitting: “I was the one who had an affair… Not ideal but we were very friendly.”
Ben married second wife Jackie Belanoff Smith a year and a half after his marriage fell apart.
She told MailOnline he would never cheat on her, adding: “From day one he has never made me feel paranoid or insecure…
“He hasn’t once bothered me. I think you just know, deep down, when that can happen and it’s not a possibility for us, so I’m not concerned.”
