Christine Bleakley found filming 'Dancing On Ice Goes Gold' "really exciting".
The skating contest returns for a one-off special in honour of the Olympic Games on Sunday (22.07.12) featuring sporting legends and the 33-year-old presenter was impressed by all the contestants.
She said: "They were all really good and they went into this programme wanting to do well. Both Jayne Torvill and I said that if they were on the series, they would do brilliantly.
"It was a great show to film. I love the Olympics, so to meet the contestants was really exciting.
"I loved meeting Olga Korbut. I love gymnastics and her life story is extraordinary. To meet her in the flesh was really special as she is such a legend. Phillip [Schofield] felt the same."
Christine also revealed one of the highlights of the show is a performance from head judge Robin Cousins, a gold medal-winning solo skater.
She added to new! magazine: "Robin Cousins also did a solo performance for us on the ice. It's the first time he's skated in front of people on his own in 12 years. It was a really brave thing for him to do and I couldn't believe how brilliant he was."
Christine loves working with Phillip Schofield on the show and can't wait to get to work on the new series.
She said: "I think Phillip is a great guy and I really do like working with him. He's been absolutely brilliant from start to finish. [Christine's predecessor] Holly Willoughby and I are good friends so before I started on Dancing On Ice, I knew everything I needed to know. When you do live TV, you're very reliant on each other.
"It really did click with Phillip. I've already had a few emails about the new series and which celebrities the production team are thinking of approaching. It's mad we're even talking about it when it's only July!"
