Dancing on Ice stars Luke Campbell and Matt Lapinskas return to school

Dancing on Ice's resident heartthrobs, Luke Campbell and Matt Lapinskas, returned to their old schools this week ahead of the skating show's School Disco-theme.

For Olympic boxer Luke, that meant a trip back to Hull with skating partner Jenna Smith, where the kids at Sirius Academy were delighted to see him.

As well as teaching the pupils some of his boxing moves, he joined Jenna in debuting some of their most impressive skating steps. And it seemed like the whole school would be getting behind him during tonight's performance.

Former EastEnders actor Matt, meanwhile, went back to his old school in Milton Keynes.

"This school gave me my starting point in life. They made me find that spark in my life, so this is a school that I hold close to my heart," he said.

As well as demonstrating some dance moves with skating partner Brianne Delcourt, he had a very important message for the children studying there today.

He said: "As long as you stay focussed and you stay positive about everything in school that you do, and don't let anyone else tell you you can't do it, you can achieve anything you want to achieve it."

But it also turns out that Matt's cheeky chappy personality isn't anything new.

Teacher Miss Bradley admitted that while he was at school, he was "great fun, highly energetic and sometimes a little bit cheeky".

We might have guessed!
