DAREDEVIL Zoe Salmon wants to live up to her Blue Peter action girl past on the ice - by doing the infamous "headbanger" routine.Dancing On Ice's most dangerous move saw Bonnie Langford smash her head on the ice in 2006's first series.Only Suzanne Shaw and Lisa Scott-Lee have attempted it since and Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett will become the first girl in this series to try it tomorrow night.
In the move, the female celebrity is held by the ankles by her professional partner and is spun round and round so her head almost touches the ice at times.
Former Miss Northern Ireland Zoe, 29, said: "I would love to do it tomorrow. That's what it's all about for me, the big lifts and the tricks.
"I really hope I'll be able to do the headbanger." Although Zoe quit Blue Peter in 2008 after four years, she packed a lot into that time.
She has run a marathon, skied, wing-walked, walked on hot coals and driven a Formula 1 car and a monster truck.
It was all a major change from her youth, Zoe says. "I remember being in my primary school when two people in your class would be choosing teams and I was always the last person who everyone chose. I became a real daredevil and Dancing On Ice is an extension of that.
"Ice skating is the only sport I've really loved doing.
"I watched it on telly growing up and became obsessed by it.
"To think all these years later here I am doing it and being trained by Torvill and Dean. "The ice is my new home and I live and breathe it." Despite that love, Zoe admits she's terrified of skating every day.
She said: "I go to my lesson and I think, 'What's going to happen to me today?
' "This week, I was so tired I tripped over myself when I arrived on one of the days and was told to go home. "You just have to look at Michael Underwood, who broke his ankle last year.
"That was at the end of a session when he was tired and decided to do his performance one more time.
