The 28-year-old reality star thinks her former 'TOWIE' co-star Gemma will be "brilliant" on the next series of the figure skating reality show and is a dark horse to win.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Billie said: "I'm so excited for Gemma, I just can't wait to watch her she's going to be brilliant. She hasn't got any experience that I know of when it comes to ice skating. I don't think many people have much experience of ice skating, anyway."

Billie - who has four-year-old daughter Nelly and 19-month-old son Arthur with her fiancé Greg Shepherd - insists Gemma will "love" the glitz and glamorous "outfits".

She added: "Gemma will be brilliant on it, she's gonna love all the amazing outfits, getting her hair and makeup done. She gives these things her all, she doesn't do anything halfheartedly, she just goes for it."

Billie would be interested in testing herself on the ice on the ITV show but she does think some of the more complex routines look very dangerous.

She said: "I would definitely consider, it's not something I would say, 'Oh god, I'm not doing that.' When I watch the people on the show though, it literally scares the life out of me, I think it must be so nerve wracking but what an amazing experience."

Billie - who appears alongside her sister Sam Faiers and her family in reality TV show 'The Mummy Diaries' - is working with Disney On Ice for their Dream Big for the Very Important Grandparents Facebook campaign, which is looking for the best lessons given to kids by their grandmothers and grandfathers around the UK.
