DANCING On Ice star Rachel Stevens has revealed she’s still in therapy to cope with her time at S Club 7.
43 years old singer said she’s “very good at being the face of the show and closing the door on everything”.
She was in the band from 1999 to 2003 when they hit pop stardom with No1 singles like Don’t Stop Movin’.
But speaking of the amount to pay, Rachel said: “You just push it down and get on with it and suck it up. And that’s a bit expensive.
“I spent a lot of time trying to learn to undo that. That’s what I have to do every day. I still talk to a therapist. That really helps.”
Rachel – voted FHM’s Sexiest Woman of All Time in 2014 after 11 years on the boys’ annual list – has denied her pop star past will help her get advantage in the skating show back last night.
She finished second in the serious competition in 2008, and some fans think her training will give her a head start – along with a ballroom pro. Brendan Cole.
Rachel insists this is still an even playing field, explaining: “We all came to the show with different backgrounds and careers.
“I am not a trained dancer. And at the end of the day, it’s on ice so no matter what you do, that adds a whole other level of challenge. Is crazy.”
Rachel skates on the show for the first time next weekend, cheered by Alex and their two girls.
She says she has no worries about her getting too close to her professional partner Brendyn Hatfield thanks to her strong bond.
She added: “Brendyn is such a professional. He’s so strong and makes it look so easy. I have a lot of confidence in him. I don’t worry about falling.
“The girls can’t wait to see it. Alex has always been very supportive of whatever I choose to do. He said, “As long as you don’t force me in, that’s fine”. “
