The actress, who has played Sally Webster on the soap since 1986, has been partnered with professional skater Matt Evers for this year's reality competition, which kicked off on Sunday.

Whiston, the show's Associate Creative Director, told Cover Media that he's impressed by how Sally is juggling Corrie and Dancing on Ice.

"My hat goes off to Sally and other actresses that do the show while being in a mainstream soap," he said. "Sally will get up in the morning and do a full filming session and then come and train and then she'll go back to the studio. In the car, she's learning her lines for Corrie, and then she's back again. She's toing and froing, doing two things at the same time.

"There's a lot on her plate but she's raring for the challenge and she's just loving it. She's absolutely embracing it all and she just loves the whole concept of Dancing on Ice."

Whiston used to be partnered with celebrities on the show before he became the Associate Creative Director, and he admitted he would have liked to work with Sally if he was still a pro skater.

"She's just the most wonderful lady. Just gorgeous. She's a bit of a national treasure is Sally," he praised. "I do have a real care for her and I really want her to do well. There'd be a few that I'd love to skate with but she would really be someone I'd like to look after."

Sally, the mother of Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor, is competing against the likes of Strictly's Brendan Cole, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and S Club 7's Rachel Stevens on this year's show, which continues on Sunday.
