Happy Mondays star Bez feels "awful" that he's remained on 'Dancing on Ice' when some of his fellow stars have been eliminated from the show.
The 57-year-old musician has been a hit with the ITV skating show's fans, who have voted for him to remain in the competition so far, but Bez - who has been wearing a helmet under his costume during his skates - admits it has made him feel "really bad" to see Ben Foden, Ria Hebden, and Rachel Stevens depart.
He said: "I feel so awful for everyone, like Ben. He skated brilliantly and he was really strong, doing massive lifts on his first skate. I felt really bad.
"Then Ria went out and I felt really bad again. Then Rachel went and she’s so beautiful. I was like, ‘Aarrrgh!’
"We’ve got a group chat and I send my love and that in there.
"I just feel so awful. The judges having the final say is my only saving grace. That stops me completely crumbling about it."
Bez admitted he is expecting to be voted off soon, so much so he has even been rehearsing the elimination process.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "Last week in the dress rehearsal I actually went through elimination. Now I know what it felt like to get eliminated."
Bez's 'Dancing on Ice' journey has been a disrupted one after he tested positive for coronavirus last month, shortly after making his debut on the ice.
Fortunately, Bez wasn't due to skate the that weekend and he was able to return to the show the following week.
