Pamela Anderson's 'Dancing On Ice' partner Matt Evers is thrilled about their pairing - but said their training has not been without the odd "scrape".
Matt told ITV1's Daybreak he "pinches himself every day" after being teamed with the 'Baywatch' beauty.

The Canadian actress has been paired with Matt since the beginning of November after her initial training with Torvill and Dean.
He said: "I go into work every day and let me tell you what, Christmas has come early."
The American pro skater received a nasty facial injury last season from partner Jorgie Porter, and said that he hasn't escaped unscathed from practising with Pammie.
The dancer admitted: "I've had a couple of scrapes from Pam, and those blades are sharp."
The pair have a few weeks to perfect their moves for the new series of the ITV1 show, which begins on January 6, 2013.
