EKIN-SU is taking her upcoming Dancing On Ice performance seriously – even learning to sing The Sound of Music before she dances as a nun.
The Love Island winner will be channelling her inner Julie Andrews for this week’s show, where she’ll be skating to a song from the 1965 classic musical and dressing up for the part alongside pro partner Brendyn Hatfield.
Ahead of the routine on Sunday night, Ekin-Su took to Instagram to show off her incredible singing voice, performing Edelweiss from the film’s soundtrack.
Staring at the camera in her living room, Ekin-Su showed off her impressive pipes as she crooned the emotional ballad.
The star’s decision to perform a song from The Sound of Music – in which she’ll become nun Maria – comes after she was hit with complaints of her outfit being “too racy”.
Watchdog Ofcom received 112 moans from viewers over Ekin- Su’s diamond-encrusted, nude body stocking for her first routine.
She landed in the skate-off, where she beat ex-footballer John Fashanu, 60.
Ekin-Su admitted she was “very nervous” beforehand and her “confidence had been knocked down”.
But she’s coming back fighting and is determined to become whatever the song demands of her.
Ekin-Su told HOAR: “Whoever you see in the performance, whether I’m playing Britney Spears or Maria from The Sound of Music, I will be that person.
“With Britney, I was having fun with it, I couldn’t have performed it better in my opinion – I don’t regret it at all. I played her and now it’s over.
“This time I’ll be playing a character from The Sound of Music and I’ll be how she is supposed to be – it’s a character. People forget I’m an actress. If I was asked to play Henry VIII on ice then I’d do it.”
Dancing On Ice continues Sunday on ITV.
