Dancing On Ice star Rachel Stevens ‘still in therapy over S Club 7 trauma’

Dancing on Ice star Rachel Stevens has opened up about her time in one of the biggest pop groups of the 00s, saying that she is still in therapy over her S Club 7 days.

More than 20 years after becoming a household name, the singer is seeing a therapist to cope with the toll that global fame took on her.

The 43-year-old said that despite the success of the group, it wasn’t always the easiest experience. 

She told The Sun: ‘You just kind of push it down and get on with it and suck it up. And that does take a bit of a toll.

‘I’ve spent a lot of time trying to learn to undo that. It’s something I have to work on every day. I still speak to a therapist. That really helps.’

Rachel found global success with S Club 7 from 1998 to 2003, selling more than 10 million albums worldwide.

Elsewhere, the singer also insisted that her pop star past will not give her an unfair advantage over her Dancing on Ice co-stars in the new series.

She said: ‘I’m not a trained dancer. And at the end of the day, it’s on ice so no matter what you do, that adds a whole other level of challenge. It’s crazy.’

Meanwhile, Dancing On Ice’s Ria Hebden became the first contestant to land the dreaded skate-off on Sunday night.

The 39-year-old TV presenter and her professional partner Łukasz Różycki, skated to Harry Styles’ Treat People With Kindness, and judges Ashley Banjo, Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill, and Christopher Dean scored their routine 24.5 out of 40.

However, it wasn’t enough for them to stay safe as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield revealed that the pair will be back on the ice in next week’s skate-off.

Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV.
