Gemma Collins is very much the star of the show in the new Dancing On Ice promo.
The TOWIE babe dominates proceedings as she talks about how much she wants to win the ITV contest.
But of course, that will come as no surprise to hardcore fans of the GC , who know that she always likes to be the centre of attention.
The three-minute clip was put together as a first look of the class of 2019, and of course, they begin with Gemma.
"I’m not here to take part, I’m here to take over," she says.
She’s then seen telling her professional partner exactly how their debut performance is going to go down.
She says: "Opening night, I wanna do the splits, I wanna do a couple of spins, I want fireworks."
Gemma also takes aim at ice skating legends and judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
She says: "Torvill and Dean can take a step to the left, because I’m about to win the Bolero cup."
Despite her confidence, Gemma is seen suffering a couple of tumbles, as is pretty much everyone else.
Westlife’s Brian McFadden confesses he’d only ever skated once at the Christmas market before falling down as he tries to spin his partner around.
Coronation Street Jane Danson falls on her bum as she says it’s "rewarding to get it right", and former Neighbours star Mark Little says he’s "dancing on thin ice" as he falls down repeatedly.
Pussycat Dolls star Melody Thornton says: "I love skating, it’s really fun. Its not fun when you fall."
And former Strictly Come Dancing pro James Jordan says while everyone knows he can dance, he can’t ice skate, but despite stumbling, he manages to stay on his feet.
EastEnders star Richard Blackwood, who says he’s "best known for everything", appears to be the steadiest on his feet, and even manages to Moonwalk.
Loose Women’s Saira Khan says training for the show is the "scariest thing" she’s ever done as she’s seen tumbling across the ice, while Grease star Didi Conn announces she’s the show’s "oldest contestant ever".
Cheeky Love Island star Wes Nelson lifts his shirt up to flash the cameras before saying: "I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I could win."
However, he immediately falls on his bum.
X Factor’s Saara Alto and cricketer Ryan Sidebottom have a little tumble too.
Wes is already considered to be the favourite to win by bookmakers Coral .
After the show’s official launch yesterday, the bookies see the Love Islander as the front runner.
Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: "The stars have been working hard on the ice over the last few weeks and yesterday’s launch party has got us all excited for the show to kick off. We make Love Island’s Wes the hot favourite to go all the way and win it, and we think he’ll make the transition from the villa to the rink look easy."
He added: "We think Gemma, Didi and Mark will be the early strugglers on the ice and they may well have their work cut out. It looks as though it’ll be a battle between the three to avoid being the first to leave the show."
