Graham Bell is no stranger to slippery conditions or sub-zero temperatures, having represented Great Britain at five Winter Olympics and competing in the 160 mile cross-country skiing Arctic Circle Race.
Since hanging up the poles, he has built a successful career in broadcasting. Bell has presented a number of popular winter sport programmes alongside Ed Leigh, including the BBC’s Ski Sunday.
He said “Ice doesn’t scare me, it’s the dancing”, admitting his experience extended to “dancing on tables, wearing ski boots in après ski. It’s not graceful and elegant!”
Earlier this week, Bell’s partner Yebin Mok suffered an injury during training, when his skate lacerated her leg, meaning he will be partnered with Karina Mantra until Mok has recovered.
Graham Bell was sent home in week three.
