Inside Dancing On Ice’s The Vivienne’s stunning barn conversion home

Dancing on Ice’s The Vivienne,who is tipped to win the show after history-making performance , showed an insight into her stunning barn conversion home over on Instagram, describing the set-up as “cosy and camp”.

The dining room features a long wooden table with benches either side, with a brick feature-wall. Sticking to the barn’s original features, the room has a lot of wood elements accented with gold mirrors and picture frames.

The living room has a red leather sofa and armchairs, covered with throws and cushions, as well as artwork and a stag bust decorating the walls.

The Welsh star, 30, lives at the renovated property with husband, David Ludford. The pair married in 2019 at iconic gay venue Heaven.

TheRuPaul’s Drag RaceUK winner has been tipped to win Dancing on Ice after making her debut performance as music idol Cher with pro skating partner Colin Grafton. The historic performance, which had fans delighted, was also the first time a drag queen had competed on the show.

Oti Mabusetold her: "If you're gonna make history this is how you make history."

Ashley Banjoalso had high praise for the star, describing her skating as "solid", and added that her stage presence had a "magic that can't be taught”.

Immediately after the performance, fans rushed to social media to share their thoughts with one fan tweeting: "Wow The Vivienne is killing this," and a second adding: "The Vivienne is already my favourite.”

Another said: "VIVIENNE TO WIN," and a fourth wrote: "I want The Vivienne to win already.”

On social media, The Vivienne wrote: “To be the first drag artist to take part in one of the big UK reality competition shows is truly an honour. I think it's a big step forward for queer representation on TV."

Speaking to OK!, The Vivienne revealed her nerves before the first live show, as she explained: “I think if anyone said they weren’t feeling nervous, they’re an absolute liar. We could be smashing it in training but you put on the lights and cameras and everything else – a 700-person audience and Torvill and Dean – and it’s a lot.”

The Drag Race UK star also explained how her drag career has helped with the performance side of skating but added that “it’s completely different.” She said: “A word I would use when I’m on stage is “manic”, but with ice skating, you can’t be manic. You’ve got to be graceful and elegant. It’s like ballet on ice. And my hip pads have come in handy – three inches of foam on each side!”
