Gareth Thomas embracing 'Dancing On Ice' "sparkles"

Former Wales rugby player Gareth Thomas says that he is getting used to wearing 'sparkly' outfits on Dancing On Ice.

Former Wales rugby player Gareth Thomas has admitted that he has finally taken to all the "sparkles" that come with performing on Dancing On Ice.

The 38-year-old, who came out as gay three years ago, has claimed that he was wary of the outfits ahead of the reality ice skating show but has insisted that he is embracing them now.

"The first time I wore one of the outfits, I looked in the mirror and thought, 'I look like a giant lime covered in diamonds'," Thomas told The Sun. "The music, the outfits, the sparkles, they're as important as the skating.

"I never thought in my life I would be wearing leather pants with studs on and sparkles everywhere. But actually now I look at myself and think, 'I feel like the dog's b******s right now.'"

Thomas was forced to skate through an infection to his foot during yesterday's live show.
