Samia Ghadie is feeling the pressure to do well on this weekend's 'Dancing On Ice' after high praise from the judges on the last show.

Last week the panel of the ITV1 show noticed an improvement in Samia's performance, and the 'Coronation Street' star revealed she has been training hard to keep the standard high.

"What the judges said last week was nice but it means the pressure's on now to keep improving. It's really full on," she said.

"Training's really good. It's really tricky this week because we're doing a massive group routine which is very exciting but it's really difficult because we've got to learn three routines this week."

And Samia - who denies rumours she is dating skate partner Sylvain Longchambon - said Pamela Anderson's shock early exit hadn't done the show any harm.

"We were all really sad to see Pam go but hopefully the show's going from strength to strength and everyone's giving it 100 per cent. Hopefully you're all enjoying it," she added.

Samia is tipping ex-'EastEnder' Matt Lapinskas for a spot in the final three.

"In the final I think Matt definitely because he's brilliant, Gareth [Thomas[ is great and so is Beth [Tweddle]. I don't know."
