Jennifer Ellison thinks she has the "biggest mountain to climb" on 'Dancing On Ice'.

The 28-year-old actress - who cracked her head open while performing a tricky routine on the ITV1 show last weekend - admits while she has done "really well" to have come so far in the celebrity skating competition, she believes Jorgie Porter or Matthew Wolfenden will be crowned champion.

She said: "Out of everybody, I've probably got the biggest mountain to climb. On the very first test we did with Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill, I scored the lowest points, so I've done really well.

"Jorgie and Matthew are the front runners, but then you've got the likes of Sebastien Foucan and Chico, who are coming through. Everyone's improving. Look at Andy from 'Corrie'!"

Jennifer - who has a two-year-old son Bobby with husband Robbie Tickle - explained if she had entered the competition before becoming a mum she would have found it much easier to shed her "inner fear".

She added in an interview with new! magazine: "I used to be a little daredevil and if I'd done this show before I had Bobby, I would have been a totally different contestant.

"But now I'm a mum, I've got this inner fear. I've got this voice saying, 'There's a bigger picture than this'."
