Being thrown around an ice rink and attempting dangerous moves that could result in serious injury is not what most people would enjoy.
Although Heidi Range is terrified of falling flat on Dancing On Ice she is happy that the show is helping distract her from her recent heartbreak.
The Sugababe split up with the man she wanted to marry and after eight years together the pain was too much to bare.
Happy days: Heidi Range says Dancing On Ice is helping her get over Dave Berry
The 28-year-old was engaged to radio presenter Dave Berry and after they broke up she admitted that times got tough and she found the whole situation 'incredibly difficult.'
She told the Daily Mirror: 'Dancing on Ice was a great distraction from the break-up. It’s been good fun and different to throw myself into rather than sitting at home thinking about it.'
The show has acted like a safety net for the Liverpool born singer and although she has just announced that she will be taking part in the DOI tour, she is scared about finishing the program.

She told the newspaper: 'I really don’t know what I’ll do with myself when it’s over.'
Heidi said that the end of last year was the worst time of her life but she is slowly becoming herself again and there are no hard feelings between her and Berry.
'We’re still great friends and I saw him last week... but it’s hard. Dancing On Ice has got me through it. It’s given me a new lease of life,' she told the Sunday Mirror last month.

Heidi, had been engaged to Dave, 33, over New Year in 2009.
She added: 'My life’s been turned upside down and I don’t know what is going to happen.
'I’m thinking about a solo album, I’m thinking about TV presenting, I’m thinking the world is my oyster right now. For 10 years every part of my life has been planned. It’s been in the diary. It’s exciting to be making a fresh start.
'This show has been brilliant. It’s given me confidence and I’ve got my groove back.'
She revealed that even the couple's closest friends didn't know about the split until it was made public.
The star has lost more than a stone since preparation began for the show and fits into a size six jeans.
'The weight loss has been brilliant,' she said.
'I was just over eight-and-a-half stone before I started. I’m 5ft 2in and I’ve always had to work really hard on my figure.
'Now I’m more toned than ever. I see my personal trainer three times a week, on top of the skate training.'
