She captured our hearts in the Love Island villa this summer and now Liberty Poole is taking on Dancing On Ice for the winter. (Side note, when does this girl rest?!)

Ahead of the launch of her collaboration with Skinny Tan, we caught up with the bubbly blonde to get the low-down on her skating training.

Despite having ice skated before, the 21 year old confirmed that learning to do it professionally is a completely different kettle of fish.

“I’m really enjoying it, but it is hard,” she told OK!. “I’m not really the most elegant person in the world. It is difficult, and harder than you think.

"I used to skate with my friends but you have to forget what you know and start again. There’s a big technical side to it that I didn’t realise. I’m just trying my best to persevere."

And yes, she has of course taken a tumble several times as she gets to grips with the ice.

"I’ve already fallen over plenty of times, it’s bruise central over here," she says. "I fell over on my front but I didn’t slam down, I sort of glided across the ice.”

"It was a filming day as well, so you’ll see me going head first at some point."

So what does she use to deal with all those training-related aches and pains?

“Always a hot bubble bath, I feel so relaxed. Apparently I’m very tense in my shoulders, so I need to look into that,” she explained.

“I use a lot of Lush, I like my typical Snow Fairy [shower gel from £5.50 here]. It’s nice to sit back with no makeup and feel fresh.”

This December you can personalise your own Snow Fairy shower gel, both online or in the Birmingham, Liverpool and London Oxford Street stores.

No doubt Liberty’s go-to Skinny Tan self tan products are helping her to get a glow that’s worthy of the Dancing On Ice rink.

“I love fake tan, but I’ve had some disasters in the past,” she told us. “That’s why I like this brand – it gives a more ‘real’ finish. I use the Coconut range [£39.99 here]. It applies clear and doesn’t get on clothes and bedsheets. It still gives a nice tan over time but not like a ‘BOOM!’ obvious fake tan.”

We can’t wait to see Liberty on our screens taking to the ice in January!
