Dancing on Ice finalist Matt Lapinskas has admitted it will take a Herculean effort to overcome Olympic stars Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell and skate off with the series prize.

"I've got to beat a gold medalist and fantastic gymnast. I'm quite scared. It's a lot of pressure. Team GB ganging up on little old me," the former EastEnders actor said.

"I feel like I've got to go out and push myself to the limits because if I don't Luke's going to knock me out and Beth's going to do the splits on my head or something," he joked.

The Dancing on Ice live final is on ITV at 7:00pm on Sunday night.
