Dancing on Ice's Sonny Jay spills ITV show gossip - rituals, injuries, co-star bonds

I was doing the breakfast show at the same time as Dancing on Ice so every single morning I'd get up at 4am anyway, the show starts at 6am, finishes at 10am and it always feels like a day's work when you go and do that...""And then I just remember having to then go to a seven hour training session on the ice, and I do genuinely look back and I think 'i don't know how I did it'."Injuries on the ice rink are commonplace on Dancing on Ice, and Sonny said his time was no different as he fell over "so many times".In fact, 24 hours before his first skate, he sprained his wrist after a cartwheel lift went horribly wrong.Talking about injuries, Sonny said: "When you sign up for a show like that, you sort of know an injury's going to happen at some point.

West Side Story's Ariana DeBose convinces Bleachers' Jack Antonoff to change his band's name
She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her acclaimed performance as Anita in Steven Spielberg's new adaptation of West Side Story.And breakout star Ariana DeBose used her newfound clout to convince singer–songwriter Jack Antonoff to change the name of his band Bleachers ahead of her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live.In a promo for her episode that was released Thursday, the 30-year-old dancer-turned-actress managed to gross the out the 37-year-old producer by informing him that people sometimes get intimate 'under the bleachers.' Just teasing! Ariana DeBose, 30, poked fun at Bleachers leader Jack Antonoff enough to make him want to change the band's name in a Saturday Night Live promo featuring Bowen Yang that was released ThursdayIn the clip, Ariana put on a busty display in an off-the-shoulder dress decorated with colorful pastel stripes, while Jack affected a nerdy–cool look with a black leather jacket and thick black glasses.After she introduced herself and Jack's band Bleachers, cast member Bowen Yang — who sported newly dyed-blond hair — added, 'Such a fun name, Bleachers, like, "Hey, let's go make out under the bleachers."' But the musician seemed offended at the idea.'Nobody does that!' he interjected, while Ariana shot back, 'Yes, they do.'The thought of kissing under the bleachers seemed to have turned the musician off of his own band name.
