Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor broke down amid a crisis of confidence in the build-up to the new series of Dancing On Ice.

After a difficult training session, Sally, 58, wept as she asked her pro partner Matt Evers: “Can I do this?”

He told her: “You totally can. If I didn’t think so I’d say, ‘girl go home.’”

His advice did the trick and the pair will be seen laughing and relaxing ahead of their performance tomorrow night on the ITV favourite.

Speaking before the show, Sally said: “This is the scariest thing I’ve ever done. I walked to Everest base camp but that was on two feet.

“I did a London to Paris charity bike ride for breast cancer and after that I vowed I wouldn’t do anything where I didn’t have two feet on the floor. I have both feet on the floor with this but the ice is so slippery and scary.

“I think this will be really good for my confidence. If I can skate on a live show I’ll feel I can do anything.

Sally, who plays Sally Webster in the soap, said ITV bosses were ready to write extra dialogue if she ends up with a sling or crutches.

She said: “I have got my fingers crossed that it is not going to happen.

“But if it does I’m sure there will be a story thrown in about how Sally fell over at the back of the street and hurt herself.

“I am praying that doesn’t happen.”

*Dancing On Ice begins Sunday on ITV at 6.30pm.
