Rebekah confessed her skating experience is limited as she said: “My dad taught me how to stand up in a pair of skates when I was about seven-years-old.

“I’m really excited actually. The only time I've been ice skating since is when I take the kids to the ice rink at Christmas.”

After becky was announced, Piers asked her what her hubby Jamie thinks of her latest venture.

She said: “He thinks it’s such a brilliant idea. He’s really looking forward to watching me and he says he hopes I don’t fall over too much.

“I hope I don’t fall over too much!”

During her chat, where she was speaking to Piers and Susanna Reid via video link, Piers couldn’t help but ask her about her legal battle with Coleen.

He said: “I know there's something we can’t talk about, that everyone else is talking about. So the thing that we can’t talk about, is there anything you can say about it?”

Rebekah told Piers off as she said: “You’re so predictable I just knew that was going to come out!”

Piers said: “I didn’t mention what it is…”

Rebekah then laughed and said: “I just know what you’re about to say.”

Piers then pressed as he said: “Everyone’s talking about it and I know you can’t for legal reasons but is there anything you can say?”

Rebekah then gave in as she confessed: “Look, we tried to sort things out amicably, it just didn’t work. I understand people think it’s ridiculous, but what was I meant to do? I need to clear my name.”
