Dancing On Ice is taking no prisoners according to skating star, Brendan Cole as he prepares for the upcoming semi-final of the programme.

He took to social media, resharing a post from the official Dancing On Ice profile revealing that the pair will be skating to She by Elvis Costello.

Alongside the announcement, he penned: " An exciting weekend ahead… A double elimination and things are getting personal!"

Several of Brendan's 93,400 Instagram followers instantly flooded to the comment section of the post to share their best wishes for him and Vanessa.

"G ood luck to you both!! Really hope you get to the final," gushed one.

This week, Brendan, The Vamps' Connor Ball, Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt, BMXer Kye Whyte and dancer Regan Gascoigne are all competing for the chance to win the programme.

Meanwhile, sources claim that the tension is rising behind the scenes as each contestant is attempting to be better than their rivals.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, a source said: "This year, the show is the most competitive it's ever been.

"They all want to win it and the standard is so high, you could cut the atmosphere with a knife, you can really feel the tension.

"They're all training like crazy. Nobody is interested in being second, they all want to win."
