The star admitted that he was nervous that his dance experience would mean that fans would have certain expectations of his skating skills on Dancing on Ice. In a recent press interview with HELLO! and other publications, the star said: "100 per cent [I feel the pressure]. We've just come off our [Diversity] tour. We do meet-and-greets before every show and I'll tell you now, 50% of the people come up to me and were like, 'You're gonna be great. "'You're gonna win it, because you're gonna flip, because you're gonna spin,' and yes, there's loads of pressure."
