Myleene Klass has declared she’ll be wearing Bridget Jones-style knickers on Sunday’s Dancing On Ice, after she flashed her underwear on last week’s show.
The pianist, 42, took to Instagram stories to joke about the situation, sharing a snap of the moment she was lifted by her pro partner Lukasz Rozycki.
‘Howwww has this become my skating debut pic?’ she despaired of the shot, which saw her skirt hiking up as she was raised from the ice.

Myleene has admitted she was left ‘mortified’ when she accidentally flashed her underwear on last Sunday’s episode and now wishes she had worn a bigger pair.
The media personality, who has vowed to give her next performance ‘everything’ she has got after suffering a knee injury, unintentionally revealed her pants when she was lifted by her partner Lukasz.
Speaking to The Sun about the moment, she said: ‘A lot of people were excited it was Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5. A lot of people liked my hair and a lot of people said I should have worn bigger pants…

‘Have you seen the photos? I was mortified. I did a little spin. Of all the shots, that is the photo…’
Myleene has been working hard in rehearsals with Lukasz and admitted she has suffered blackouts on the ice.
The star revealed viewers will see one such moment on Sunday’s episode when she briefly lost consciousness during training.
She said: ‘We were doing the rehearsals last week and I didn’t realise it was a blackout as it’s a weird feeling. You don’t realise it’s happening.’

Myleene also admitted it came as no surprise to her that former Olympians Colin Jackson, 53, and Graham Bell, 55, are the most competitive.
However, she is eager to show off her skills too and admitted she would be up for doing the famous headbanger move at some point during the show.
Myleene explained that if Lukasz asks her to do the move, when the male spins the female from her ankles causing her to go up and down, she will ‘follow him blindly’.
The TV star suffered a setback ahead of her solo skating debut on the show last weekend after tearing a cartilage in her knee.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Myleene thanked her followers for their kind words after her injury and said she would keep going.
Determination: Myleene insisted she has ‘worked too hard to quit’ Dancing On Ice after her knee injury and will give her next performance ‘everything’ she has got
She wrote: ‘Thank you for all your super kind messages. (Some of you have even offered me physio sessions!),”
‘All this to say, I love ice skating, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to conquer, esp [sic] in such a short time span, but I’ve worked too hard to quit and I’m going to give it EVERYTHING I’ve got on Sunday, nana knees and all.
‘Thank you for your continued love and support. Mum power. Plus, compared to childbirth, a meniscus injury is ‘meh’.’
Myleene also revealed she is wearing knee pads, even when not skating, to keep her training on track.

Her torn meniscus will only heal if it is allowed to fully rest but that is no option for Myleene, who filmed herself at rehearsals on Tuesday.
An ITV source recently told The Mirror: ‘Myleene has picked up a knee injury during training and she is having physio sessions to try to help with both her knees ahead of her first dance on screen with Lukasz on Sunday.
‘It is very early on to be in pain and having knee problems but Myleene is determined to carry on and won’t let it ruin her experience.
‘She will be going through the pain barrier and the show means a lot to her and her children so this may not stop her but it certainly won’t help her chances of winning.’

Myleene’s injury comes after Dancing On Ice was slammed for putting pressure on an already overburdened National Health Service after three contestants required medical assistance before the show had launched.
The popular ITV staple returned with a 13th series on Sunday, but injuries to two professional skaters and a celebrity contestant overshadowed rehearsals.
Both Yebin Mok and Andy Buchanan required hospital treatment after suffering injury while rehearsing with respective partners Graham Bell and Rebekah Vardy, while Denise Van Outen dislocated her shoulder prior to Sunday’s launch.
Yebin praised the NHS from her hospital bed after she was forced to pull out of the competition when she was stabbed in the shin by celebrity partner Graham Bell’s ice skate in a freak accident, leaving her tendons exposed.

Not happy: A faction of viewers have since criticised the show for putting undue pressure on doctors and nurses as they struggle to cope following a dramatic spike in coronavirus infections
While in a separate incident fellow skater Andy needed treatment after being struck in the face by partner Rebekah’s skate.
Despite show venue Bovington Airfield having an on-site medic, it’s understood that all three were sent to A&E after sustaining their injuries, with Mok – who suffered a deep gash to the leg – remaining in hospital overnight.
A faction of viewers have since criticised the show for putting undue pressure on doctors and nurses as they struggle to cope following a dramatic spike in coronavirus infections across the United Kingdom.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday evening, one concerned fan wrote: ‘This needs to stop or change. We need to protect our NHS not put additional and completely avoidable strain on it.’

The same fan added: ‘Love @dancingonice but already seen at least 3 admissions to A&E at a time when the NHS is deciding who lives or dies because of how critically stretched they are now…
‘Is this responsible? Surely @ITV could afford to pay for private medical treatment instead.’
A second wrote: ‘UK Gov: don’t put unnecessary strain on the NHS… ITV: let’s strap knives to celebrities’ feet.’
Commenting on the show’s growing injury list, a third commented: ‘I found it really upsetting watching the program @dancingonicelast night noticing how many people on the show had to go to A&E at a time when our @NHSuk is so overstretched!’
ITV declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
Worrying: The skater will be out for ‘quite a few weeks’ while she recovers following the ‘freak accident’
