Christine Bleakley has admitted that she does not think she will be able to match her Dancing On Ice predecessor Holly Willoughby when it comes to her outfits on the show.

The former Daybreak presenter, who is fronting the new series of the show alongside Philip Schofield, told The Sun she would be avoiding the plunging necklines that led Holly to be dubbed ‘Holly ‘Willobooby’ by viewers.

“I did like the way Holly always wore her long dresses and it suits the occasion here. I’ll probably go long on Sunday,” she said of her forthcoming debut.

“Maybe a bit of sparkles but no cleavage! I’m lacking in the Holly Willobooby department! I’ll keep it simple.

“I think I will ease my way in gently on that front,” she added. “Holly’s dresses were always so long and flowing and gorgeous and she looked so stunning in them.”

Christine also said that while she was nervous about appearing on the show, working alongside Philip Schofield was keeping her calm.

“I’m definitely nervous. It’s such a huge set and it can be overwhelming but it’s great Phillip’s alongside me and there is a lovely team and crew behind the scenes,” she told the paper.

“Yesterday, as nervous as I was, I looked over at the celebs and I thought, ‘You know what, you have it tougher than I do!’ and they kind of calmed me in a reverse way.”
