Dancing on Ice favourite Regan Gascoigne has admitted he’s just as emotional as his dad Gazza.
The lad, 25, has already been tearful during training sessions for the ITV show.
And he reckons he might blub on live telly — just like Gazza famously did at the 1990 World Cup.
Regan said: “I am very emotional. My whole family is. You will definitely see some tears at some point.
“I’ve have definitely welled up a few times in training. The other day I was watching Torvill and Dean skating and emotion came over me because I realised I am getting to skate on a show with them.
“I don’t think I’m famous. I don’t know how I actually got this job. I genuinely don’t. I’m not the famous one — my dad is the famous one.
“So this is an emotional journey. One minute you’re excited, the next minute you’re nervous.”
Regan has a very close bond with his dad Gazza, 54, and it is helping him stay focussed.
He said: “My dad is supporting me all the time. Everything I’ve ever done, he’s always there. My family are really supportive.
“Hopefully he is going to be in the audience rooting for me. He will be proud of me whatever happens.”
Regan, who will make his debut on tonight’s show, is the favourite to win the series.
Bookies have given him better odds than dance veterans Brendan Cole, 45, and Kimberly Wyatt, 39.
But Regan said: “I have no idea why I’m the favourite. I’ve trained as a dancer, but this is a totally different ballgame. It’s so much harder than I was expecting.
“After watching the first show last weekend and seeing the first lot of contestants nail it, I am so much more nervous. I can’t believe I’m actually doing it.
“I’m not competitive. I just love doing what I do. I enjoy performing. I’m just living it and enjoying every moment.”
