Dancing On Ice star Michelle Heaton has revealed the advice she received from fellow Liberty X member Jessica Taylor before her stint on the skating show.

Jessica, 42, competed in the series in 2009 and reached the final along with skating partner Pavel Aubrecht.

Elaborating on Jessica’s words of wisdom, Michelle, 43, said her friends advised her to “enjoy every second” after she put too much “pressure” on herself during the competition.

Speaking to MailOnline and other press, Michelle said: “Jessica from Liberty X did the show in 2009. And obviously Jess and I spoke about it and she said just enjoy every second.

And she said it’s very important because before she knows it, even though she’s made it to the final, she’s still far away and she wishes she had enjoyed it more because of the pressure she put on herself.

She said just enjoy every moment. And that’s what I’m trying to do.

Meanwhile, Michelle — who recently told of having four falls in one day — insists she’s there to win it, and said those who say otherwise are likely “lying” to themselves.

She said: I think we all are [in it to win it]. I think you know, when someone says “Oh, I don’t care if I win,” I think it’s almost a lie to themselves.

We all love to be there in the final and we all love to win. It will be amazing.

She continued, “The thing to remind people about shows like this is, if you like someone or vote for them. Because sometimes people who come out, you think ‘Oh, I’m sure they’ll be safe’ and it’s the same when you watch The Xactor or Popstars Or raising me when I was at the competitions.

If you want to vote for someone, you vote for someone, otherwise they are not safe. So we all want to be there – just vote for me! “

It comes after Michelle revealed that she wanted to make her kids proud by dancing on ice after her battles with alcohol and drug addiction.

The former Liberty X star, 43, who recently celebrated 20 months of sobriety, shares daughteraith, 10, and son AJ, eight, with husband Hugh Hanley.

And just a week before she made her debut on the ITV reality show, she said: ‘I’ve always watched the show and I’m a huge fan of the show.

My bandmate Jessica did it many years ago, and I’ve always wanted to do the show, but it was never my time.

I obviously struggled with addiction, so even though I always wanted to do the show and had my name in the hat, it was never the right time.

I feel really strong and ready. I want to do that because it’s always been on my bucket list. The show is magical – the costumes and doing something different and out of my box.

I’m not a professional dancer, I’m a pop star and artist but I’m not a professional at anything! I had to regain some confidence as I recovered and I think now is the right time.

She added, ‘When I called my husband and told him I got him he was so happy – he’s my biggest supporter. aith was with me when I got the call and I cried!

Iman said when I was crying that she thought it was bad news and I told her I got it and she hugged me and said, “I’m so proud of you mom.”

My kids are my biggest supporter. You have to rip them apart because they will be there every week! “
