Dancing on Ice can become a fierce competition as we get into the final stages – but Kimberly Wyatt is still close to her rivals.
The Pussycat Dolls singer – who skates with pro partner Mark Hanretty – is one of the favorites to win after impressing with her sensational routines each week.
It’s tight at the top as some celebrity skaters believe they have a shot at lifting the trophy at the finals in a couple of weeks.
But that hasn’t stopped them from becoming close friends off the ice – and Kimberly has revealed who she spends a lot of time with.
Despite claims of behind-the-scenes cracking and freezing, Kimberly has denied the speculation and has spoken out about the “good vibes behind the scenes.”
“It’s such a scary experience. I feel like we have such a brilliant cast and the saving grace is knowing that however you’re feeling, someone else must be feeling pretty much the same way,” she told The Mirror last month.
Who is she good friends with from this year’s harvest?

Kimberly has explained that she’s found a “connection” with Happy Mondays star Bez and adores Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor.
“Bez always gives me a cute little smile, I have a little connection with him,” Kimberly said.
“And Sally is just brilliant, I adore her, she’s a wonderful bundle of energy backstage.”
Both are now eliminated from the competition and Kimberly is up against another trained dancer, former Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole.
They may be rivals for the top skater crown, but Kimberly has said she enjoys Brendan’s accomplishments and is pushed to do better.
She added: “Brendan is such a tough competitor but I love watching him on the ice. If anything, it helps me improve my game.
Kimberly has also called Regan Gascoigne, another trained dancer who is a direct competitor, “honey” and said she loves the way his body moves.
Kimberly admitted she is competitive but explained that she loves watching everyone put on a good show for viewers at home.
Kimberly said: “I can’t deny that I’m a very competitive person, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be to the detriment of my competitors. There’s nothing I love more than watching everyone go off and smash it. It makes me really excited.”
The singer has had support from many different places, but the one that confused fans was her connection to Ryan Thomas.
The former Coronation Street actor stunned people when he posted one Instagram Story saying he “supports my girls”.
Ryan uploaded a sweet snap of him and his mum sat in the crowd tagging both Kimberly and Sally in the post.
Kimberly’s husband is British model Max Rogers who has worked with some big luxury brands like Diesel, Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger and is an old friend of Ryan’s.
Kimberly has been at the top of the leaderboard every week and is among the favorites to win the competition.
But the singer has admitted she struggles with her nerves backstage as she prepares to skate live on the show.
She explained, “You really have to go into warrior mode a little bit and talk yourself into it.
“It’s nerve wracking. I’ve never had to regulate my breathing like taking deep breaths into my ribs. You have to stay calm. Find your zen.
“So trying not to embrace that and struggling with your own feelings and just wanting to do your best – it’s a lot to deal with.”
*Dancing on Ice airs tonight at 6pm on ITV
