Your fancy dan stuff doesn't wear with me.

0:00:030:00:08

I've just been kicked out of the game.

0:00:080:00:09

Sometimes my blood gets pumping a bit too much, it's just passion.

0:00:090:00:13

We do get on, but then again, we are rivals.

0:00:130:00:18

When we're on the ice, we are not friends at all.

0:00:190:00:22

It's all about competition.

0:00:220:00:24

Coming up: Liam takes on his biggest challenge yet.

0:00:490:00:53

Hard, William. Hard, Liam. Good boy.

0:00:530:00:55

Push!

0:00:550:00:56

Disaster strikes for Aimie at the Icicles dress rehearsal.

0:00:560:01:00

So scared. I couldn't breathe properly.

0:01:010:01:04

And when Beccy heads to the British Championships...

0:01:040:01:07

Go.

0:01:070:01:09

..guess who's back.

0:01:090:01:10

When you spend half your life on the ice,

0:01:200:01:22

sometimes you just need to take a little time out.

0:01:220:01:26

I'm going to be you for a second now. Are you ready?

0:01:260:01:29

So, how was college today?

0:01:290:01:31

It was good.

0:01:310:01:32

-Is that what I look like?

-Yeah!

0:01:320:01:34

Smells good.

0:01:340:01:36

Ow!

0:01:370:01:38

Give this back. I'm just going to take a selfie.

0:01:390:01:42

And then you're, like...

0:01:420:01:43

You're like, oh, shoes are looking on good today. You're, like...

0:01:430:01:48

For our Ice Stars, even during downtime,

0:01:510:01:54

thoughts of winning are never far away.

0:01:540:01:57

The Icicles have their big international championship

0:01:570:02:01

in Salzburg in just a few weeks.

0:02:010:02:03

I really, really, really want to be in Switzerland, like, so badly.

0:02:030:02:06

We're faster, stronger, better this year.

0:02:060:02:08

We're as one, aren't we, this year?

0:02:080:02:10

I just want to have the same feeling as we did last year.

0:02:100:02:12

-Yeah.

-When we beat the French team.

0:02:120:02:14

-I want that feeling again.

-Yeah.

0:02:140:02:17

Last year, the girls beat their biggest rivals - France -

0:02:180:02:22

and came 14th at the World Championships.

0:02:220:02:26

And this year, they want to do even better.

0:02:260:02:30

Our main aim for Salzburg is probably to come top ten,

0:02:300:02:33

and to beat our main rivals -

0:02:330:02:35

Switzerland and France.

0:02:350:02:37

Everyone has to be at the top of their game,

0:02:370:02:39

because every point matters.

0:02:390:02:41

And when you need the points to get to the top,

0:02:420:02:45

there's one man the Icicles know will get them into shape.

0:02:450:02:48

Down on the knees, drive.

0:02:480:02:51

Top technical specialist, Chris Buchanan.

0:02:510:02:54

Strong holds.

0:02:540:02:56

With Chris, he sees everything.

0:02:570:02:59

It's like he's got more than two eyes.

0:02:590:03:02

You can't be sloppy at all.

0:03:020:03:03

Right, hard work ahead.

0:03:030:03:06

We're making you do more difficult things this time.

0:03:060:03:10

Because you need the points.

0:03:100:03:11

Bring it back.

0:03:180:03:20

Now, drive.

0:03:200:03:21

And bend again.

0:03:250:03:27

No, back.

0:03:310:03:33

It's a long way to go.

0:03:370:03:38

Yeah, but it's the best run-through they've done so far.

0:03:380:03:40

-I'm happy for you. I'm not happy with what they've done, though.

-OK.

0:03:400:03:44

You cannot drift.

0:03:440:03:45

The line must join up, we cannot have the break,

0:03:450:03:48

otherwise you're losing the grades.

0:03:480:03:51

Only a few points can make such a difference between first and last.

0:03:510:03:54

So they're really important.

0:03:540:03:56

It makes all the girls be on their toes.

0:03:560:03:59

After Chris's tough words,

0:03:590:04:01

the girls try even harder to perfect the routine.

0:04:010:04:04

Chris, at the moment, are they doing two twizzles?

0:04:040:04:07

It should be two twizzles.

0:04:070:04:09

And those twizzles might just be the way

0:04:090:04:11

to get them the extra points they'll need.

0:04:110:04:14

Slow down the rotation.

0:04:170:04:19

Centres, keep it tight.

0:04:210:04:22

Chris is just trying something new,

0:04:220:04:25

like, adding in some 360 turns.

0:04:250:04:27

You've worked hard. Well done.

0:04:350:04:37

Well done, girls.

0:04:410:04:43

In the dance studio,

0:04:450:04:46

figure skaters Kloe and Beccy are limbering up

0:04:460:04:49

for the toughest test of their season.

0:04:490:04:52

It's just days until the British Championships.

0:04:540:04:57

The British is always the biggest thing,

0:04:580:05:02

and it's a really big deal.

0:05:020:05:05

People come from all over Great Britain.

0:05:050:05:08

They kind of train for that their whole season.

0:05:080:05:11

Kloe competes one level higher than her team-mate,

0:05:110:05:14

and won Beccy's category two years ago.

0:05:140:05:16

What do you think this season is going to be like?

0:05:180:05:21

It's going to be hard.

0:05:210:05:23

-Everyone needs a challenge every now and then, so...

-Yeah.

0:05:230:05:26

I feel like, for you, it's just going to be, like,

0:05:260:05:29

one of those, like, best seasons.

0:05:290:05:30

I think you're in your best shape.

0:05:300:05:33

Two years ago at the British,

0:05:330:05:35

I didn't qualify and I didn't get into the top 24.

0:05:350:05:40

Kloe is always telling me that I'm capable of going and winning it,

0:05:410:05:45

so I hope she's right.

0:05:450:05:47

High arms, please. Beccy, high arms, please.

0:05:510:05:54

Beccy's working very hard.

0:05:540:05:56

She likes this sport.

0:05:560:05:58

Just relax.

0:06:000:06:01

Take off.

0:06:010:06:03

This is my last chance of winning the British in the Novice category.

0:06:030:06:07

Push, there, forward.

0:06:090:06:11

Turn to there, forward.

0:06:110:06:13

Yes. The double combination, very good.

0:06:160:06:19

Double axel, very good.

0:06:190:06:21

If Beccy's skating well, and she will do everything that she can...

0:06:210:06:24

..she can be on the podium.

0:06:250:06:27

Kloe knows all about topping the podium.

0:06:280:06:31

But everything's changed since her move up a level to Juniors.

0:06:310:06:35

People can be so much older than me.

0:06:350:06:37

There can be 19-year-olds in my category.

0:06:370:06:40

They'll probably have more experience,

0:06:400:06:42

or they've been skating for a longer time.

0:06:420:06:45

Kloe hasn't been doing as well as she could at competitions this year,

0:06:450:06:49

and it's really knocked her confidence.

0:06:490:06:51

I've never seen her come back from a competition so devastated.

0:06:510:06:54

I didn't skate very good.

0:06:540:06:56

I made really silly mistakes.

0:06:560:06:58

And she's been working hard to get back on track.

0:06:580:07:01

Yes.

0:07:010:07:02

I knew that I can do better.

0:07:020:07:04

So I have to change my thinking and forget about that,

0:07:040:07:07

and just concentrate on the British.

0:07:070:07:09

If she can land all the triple jumps in her routine,

0:07:090:07:12

it will be a real boost to her confidence.

0:07:120:07:15

A triple jump is when you jump up and turn three times in the air,

0:07:150:07:19

and then land.

0:07:190:07:21

Or fall!

0:07:210:07:23

Hopefully, land!

0:07:230:07:24

I don't need skater without triple in Junior categories.

0:07:340:07:37

Try one more time, please.

0:07:370:07:39

Come here, Klo.

0:07:420:07:43

Right leg.

0:07:470:07:48

A step not enough with the speed.

0:07:480:07:50

From here, you have to take off here, to there.

0:07:500:07:53

It's too much.

0:07:550:07:56

You need more energy to get up in the air,

0:07:560:08:00

you need to bend more, so it's a lot harder.

0:08:000:08:03

It's still not stable.

0:08:050:08:06

Because she's not landing that every day, she's not confident.

0:08:060:08:10

I would love to land my triple in the British,

0:08:130:08:15

but...we'll see what happens.

0:08:150:08:18

While Kloe hopes she'll look good on the ice, across town,

0:08:210:08:25

looking good off the ice is top of Liam's agenda.

0:08:250:08:28

It's his 16th birthday.

0:08:340:08:36

Turning 16 means he can finally get to play

0:08:390:08:42

for the Senior team of the Lions.

0:08:420:08:44

Senior hockey is a big jump from Junior, it can make or break people.

0:08:460:08:51

It shows whether they'll be able to make it as a professional or not.

0:08:510:08:54

He could've never got this far without the support of his family.

0:08:550:08:59

Thank you very much. Thank you very much.

0:09:030:09:05

Let's get all the cards in.

0:09:080:09:10

Thank you very much.

0:09:150:09:16

At 16, I have the chance of playing with the Lions,

0:09:160:09:18

so it's a big opportunity for me. I've been working hard,

0:09:180:09:21

I've been training with them for the past two seasons, maybe.

0:09:210:09:24

So it's finally the chance to play with them.

0:09:240:09:26

It's a big moment in my hockey career.

0:09:260:09:29

-# Happy birthday to you!

-#

0:09:290:09:32

Go on, cut it.

0:09:380:09:39

There's an important Lions game coming up.

0:09:410:09:44

Will Liam finally get to play for his team?

0:09:440:09:46

The Icicles have their sights set

0:09:530:09:56

on making it into the top ten in Salzburg.

0:09:560:09:59

And today, they have their first dress rehearsal

0:09:590:10:02

in front of family and friends.

0:10:020:10:04

This isn't tight enough, it needs to be tighter.

0:10:040:10:06

I think you should be using a permanent brush.

0:10:060:10:08

I want it above the lid on both sides.

0:10:080:10:11

And showcasing not one but two new outfits.

0:10:110:10:15

The dresses are really important, like, they're my favourite part.

0:10:160:10:19

Because they make us look really pretty, like princesses!

0:10:190:10:23

Go.

0:10:250:10:27

It's the first time the girls will perform their programme

0:10:270:10:30

in front of a crowd. Obviously, they'll be a bit nervous.

0:10:300:10:32

I'm not sure if they're ready.

0:10:320:10:34

The dresses are amazing, I love them so much.

0:10:390:10:42

I don't want to take it off.

0:10:420:10:44

Ready?

0:10:440:10:45

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:450:10:48

MUSIC: Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now) By Bob Sinclar

0:10:580:11:01

It's a confident start, but only a minute in,

0:11:100:11:13

it looks like something's up with Aimie.

0:11:130:11:15

I struggle with my breathing because it's high intensity.

0:11:170:11:21

She and the girls fight to keep in sync.

0:11:240:11:27

Push!

0:11:270:11:28

They regain some control, but all of a sudden...

0:11:320:11:36

..Aimie's panicked.

0:11:380:11:39

Where's your inhaler?

0:11:390:11:41

She's got so out of breath, she's had to leave the ice.

0:11:440:11:48

I was so scared.

0:11:490:11:51

This is a week until competition. This can't happen at competition.

0:11:510:11:55

I was thinking, what does the team think of me?

0:11:550:11:57

Will I be OK?

0:11:570:11:59

Unable to continue, she can only watch on

0:12:010:12:03

as the run-through falls apart.

0:12:030:12:05

What are you doing...?

0:12:080:12:10

Look at me. Breathe.

0:12:100:12:13

You've got another programme to do, haven't you?

0:12:130:12:16

Aimie has asthma, and she struggles with her breathing regularly.

0:12:160:12:19

It gets worse when she skates and panics.

0:12:190:12:22

I was really worried when I saw Aimie, all of us were.

0:12:240:12:27

It's not a nice thing to see,

0:12:270:12:28

especially one of your good team-mates.

0:12:280:12:30

You just have to breathe slowly, sweetheart.

0:12:300:12:34

Through the nose, that's it.

0:12:340:12:36

Now, in, out.

0:12:360:12:38

You're letting things go too much, that was a half effort.

0:12:390:12:42

Aimie dropped out because she couldn't breathe...

0:12:420:12:45

There's just too many mistakes.

0:12:450:12:48

It's really hard for her dropping out,

0:12:480:12:50

just a couple of things went wrong,

0:12:500:12:52

but it's OK, because it's not her fault.

0:12:520:12:54

I was devastated because I wanted to be there for the team.

0:12:540:12:58

Aimie never lets her asthma get in the way,

0:12:580:13:01

and joins the girls for a quick change into costume number two.

0:13:010:13:04

It's a week until competition,

0:13:050:13:07

we don't want a good skater dropping out like that. We need her.

0:13:070:13:10

I still feel really shaky and it really hurts still,

0:13:140:13:18

but I've mainly calmed down now and I'm OK.

0:13:180:13:21

With that shaky rehearsal and Aimie's health in question,

0:13:220:13:26

it's not looking great for Salzburg.

0:13:260:13:28

On the other side of the rink...

0:13:290:13:31

it's Lions...

0:13:310:13:33

ROARING

0:13:330:13:34

..versus the Bulldogs.

0:13:340:13:36

BARKING

0:13:360:13:37

The Senior hockey team are taking on old rivals from Bradford.

0:13:370:13:41

And Liam's hoping he's about to join the pride.

0:13:420:13:45

Tonight could be the first time I play for the Lions.

0:13:460:13:48

This is my chance

0:13:480:13:50

to show them that I'm good enough to play at this level.

0:13:500:13:53

From Under-16s, through to Senior hockey,

0:13:530:13:56

it's a huge step.

0:13:560:13:58

And if he gets that chance to get out there,

0:13:580:14:01

then he's really got to step his game up.

0:14:010:14:03

'I'm a little bit nervous - you know, you're playing with adults,

0:14:040:14:06

'you're playing with grown men.

0:14:060:14:08

'Bradford are a physical team.'

0:14:080:14:10

Make sure that you're in the right frame of mind

0:14:100:14:12

from the minute you go outside the door tonight, OK?

0:14:120:14:14

Any passengers will be sat on the bench,

0:14:140:14:16

and I'll have to go with those that give me the energy,

0:14:160:14:18

the enthusiasm and the commitment.

0:14:180:14:20

All right, final preparations, boys, final preps, let's go.

0:14:200:14:24

As the game gets under way,

0:14:240:14:26

Liam has to start off on the bench.

0:14:260:14:28

You have to stand there and watch everyone take the onslaught.

0:14:370:14:40

From the side, it looked like a really tough, fast game.

0:14:450:14:48

It was going at high speed.

0:14:480:14:50

Go, go, go!

0:14:550:14:57

At the end of the period, neither team has scored.

0:14:580:15:02

We're panicking too much.

0:15:020:15:04

They're not going to just roll over and let you beat them.

0:15:040:15:06

It's 0-0 at the minute.

0:15:060:15:08

It's quite nerve-racking at the side,

0:15:080:15:10

but hopefully I'll get on soon.

0:15:100:15:12

Go, go, go, go, go!

0:15:160:15:17

Outside, outside, outside!

0:15:210:15:23

Coach Matt has seen enough.

0:15:230:15:25

Let's go - change him.

0:15:250:15:27

He's sending on Liam in number five.

0:15:270:15:29

When Matt called my name to go on the ice,

0:15:290:15:32

I was straightaway switched on and ready to go.

0:15:320:15:36

Hard, Liam. Hard, Liam...

0:15:420:15:44

I had a lot of eyes on me - you know, coaches, parents,

0:15:480:15:52

you know - expecting high results.

0:15:520:15:55

With playing Senior hockey, there's a lot more big guys running at you,

0:15:580:16:02

and trying to hit you a lot more, but...

0:16:020:16:04

WHISTLE

0:16:110:16:13

Ooh, Liam, that was close.

0:16:130:16:15

I didn't score, but at the end of the day

0:16:160:16:19

I defend and the forwards score.

0:16:190:16:22

HE SHOUTS ENCOURAGEMENT

0:16:300:16:32

The goals started to come,

0:16:320:16:33

and I'll say we took control of the game.

0:16:330:16:35

I didn't want to come off.

0:16:450:16:46

I just wanted to keep going and going and going,

0:16:460:16:49

just sort of soaking it all up and getting the experience.

0:16:490:16:54

Good job, Liam.

0:16:540:16:55

The Lions win by three goals.

0:16:570:16:59

And with his team's support,

0:17:020:17:04

Liam's proved he's grown from cub to big cat.

0:17:040:17:08

-Did you enjoy that?

-Yeah, it was fun.

-You did a really good job.

0:17:080:17:12

Keep training, keep working hard, and er...

0:17:120:17:13

your opportunities will probably arise again.

0:17:130:17:15

-Thanks very much.

-All right.

0:17:150:17:17

Now I've started playing Senior hockey,

0:17:200:17:22

it's the next step to

0:17:220:17:24

getting that dream of being a professional hockey player.

0:17:240:17:26

It's the morning of the British Figure Skating Championships

0:17:390:17:41

for Kloe and Beccy.

0:17:410:17:44

I'm just in my room relaxing.

0:17:440:17:47

Just packing all the things I need, like my dresses.

0:17:470:17:50

This is the current dress I'm using.

0:17:500:17:53

I'm still not making any predictions -

0:17:540:17:57

I feel like that's just putting pressure on myself.

0:17:570:18:00

We have...all the trophies that I've won.

0:18:000:18:03

That's quite a few, that's quite a lot.

0:18:030:18:07

I just hope that I don't make any silly mistakes,

0:18:070:18:11

and I show everyone what I can do.

0:18:110:18:13

Britain's Best female figure skaters will be battling here in Sheffield.

0:18:150:18:20

And Kloe's Junior category is up first.

0:18:200:18:23

She's got her mum here for support,

0:18:240:18:26

and is hoping for a good performance to rebuild her confidence.

0:18:260:18:30

I am really nervous, because it is a big deal.

0:18:300:18:33

I'm just going to try and focus on myself and nobody else.

0:18:330:18:37

I can't say I was going into the British expecting to win.

0:18:370:18:41

Some of the girls are really good, because they've done Juniors

0:18:410:18:44

for, like, so many years, and I haven't.

0:18:440:18:47

Listen - just...

0:18:470:18:50

Just confidence.

0:18:510:18:53

Nothing will happen. Understand?

0:18:530:18:55

Right, one more outside.

0:19:000:19:02

After the first one, you have to go.

0:19:030:19:06

Take off. Forward.

0:19:060:19:07

Up...

0:19:070:19:08

'I'm really, really hoping that

0:19:090:19:11

'I can land my triple jump, because

0:19:110:19:14

-'it would just make me proud!'

-SHE LAUGHS

0:19:140:19:17

From beginning to end, the programme has to be fast.

0:19:250:19:28

Come on. Strong...

0:19:300:19:32

-Strong.

-Strong. And skating nice. OK?

0:19:320:19:35

Come on.

0:19:350:19:36

MUSIC: Keeping Your Head Up by Birdy

0:19:440:19:46

I really managed to just concentrate on myself.

0:19:550:19:59

And I landed it.

0:20:020:20:03

It wasn't perfect, but it was a good jump.

0:20:050:20:08

And I knew that after that, I could just really enjoy my programme.

0:20:090:20:12

I was so happy, it was such a great feeling.

0:20:210:20:24

Are you pleased with that speed? Wow...

0:20:400:20:45

It was very good. Really, really good.

0:20:450:20:48

JUDGE READS OUT SCORES

0:20:480:20:51

This is a personal best.

0:20:520:20:55

I landed my triple, and I got a personal best score as well.

0:20:550:20:59

And Team Kloe are over the moon.

0:21:010:21:03

When I watched you...

0:21:030:21:05

you know, everything just clicked in after that.

0:21:050:21:07

The axel was absolutely lovely. Really amazing.

0:21:070:21:12

To be able to get a skate out like I did, it's a really good feeling

0:21:120:21:16

and now I feel like I can actually do better,

0:21:160:21:20

and maybe win next year.

0:21:200:21:22

Mum, where's the nail stuff?

0:21:250:21:28

In the hallway. Why?

0:21:280:21:29

Can you do my nails, please?

0:21:310:21:33

-Yes.

-Thanks.

0:21:330:21:34

Doctors tell people with asthma to do an hour a day of sport,

0:21:350:21:38

just like everyone else.

0:21:380:21:40

But when it's hard to breathe, it can still feel scary.

0:21:400:21:42

What does it feel like when you actually can't breathe?

0:21:440:21:47

It's hard to, like, explain.

0:21:470:21:50

It's like holding your breath...

0:21:510:21:53

-Yeah.

-..but trying to breathe at the same time.

0:21:530:21:56

When it's cold - like, an ice rink - and it gets to my chest a lot.

0:21:570:22:02

-A lot quicker.

-Yeah.

0:22:020:22:04

Maybe you should skate with a scarf.

0:22:040:22:06

No!

0:22:060:22:07

Aimie discovered she had asthma five years ago.

0:22:080:22:12

It scared me a little.

0:22:120:22:14

I was a bit worried, cos I didn't know what that meant

0:22:140:22:16

for my skating career.

0:22:160:22:17

I'm slightly nervous for Salzburg with my asthma,

0:22:170:22:22

because other teams are going to be there,

0:22:220:22:24

and I can't be seen as weak.

0:22:240:22:27

'We need to look, like, really strong.'

0:22:270:22:30

I don't want to let the girls down at Salzburg,

0:22:300:22:33

if it does happen halfway through the performance.

0:22:330:22:36

I can't just run off the ice. Like...

0:22:360:22:39

that can't happen.

0:22:390:22:41

So you just think you'd be able to carry on, and

0:22:410:22:44

-get through to the end?

-Definitely.

0:22:440:22:46

I definitely wouldn't stop skating because I was asthmatic.

0:22:460:22:49

Like, that would not stop me.

0:22:490:22:51

Right, you're done. You can pack it all away now.

0:22:510:22:54

Following Kloe's personal success at the British Championships

0:23:010:23:05

it's now Beccy's chance to shine in the Novice category.

0:23:050:23:09

It would mean a lot to do well.

0:23:090:23:11

Hopefully I'll land everything.

0:23:110:23:13

I hope she will be on the podium.

0:23:140:23:16

But you know, this ice, anything can happen.

0:23:160:23:19

And it turns out Beccy's not the only ice star hoping to win today.

0:23:200:23:24

It's her old team-mate and rival Alexia.

0:23:250:23:29

At the end of last season, she decided to leave Nottingham,

0:23:290:23:32

and start again at a new rink.

0:23:320:23:34

It's a bit like you've left almost part of your life.

0:23:360:23:39

I guess it's kind of

0:23:390:23:41

shutting one door positively and opening a new one into a new life.

0:23:410:23:45

Last time we saw the two girls go head-to-head,

0:23:460:23:49

it was Alexia who came out on top.

0:23:490:23:52

I'm eighth, and Beccy's tenth.

0:23:520:23:54

Beccy and I have always been skate rivals -

0:23:550:23:57

I know how she works, I know how strong she is.

0:23:570:24:01

It is rivalry, really.

0:24:010:24:04

But it's always very, very close.

0:24:040:24:06

Today, Alexia has the bonus of competing on her home rink.

0:24:070:24:12

I've trained there so many times, and I know what I'm doing

0:24:120:24:14

and I know how it feels.

0:24:140:24:16

And I think I had an advantage.

0:24:160:24:19

Normally, I am a little bit higher on the technical score.

0:24:250:24:30

Alexia's normally higher on presentation than me, so

0:24:310:24:35

it goes either way.

0:24:350:24:38

We don't know.

0:24:380:24:39

JUDGE READS OUT SCORES

0:24:470:24:50

APPLAUSE

0:24:520:24:54

Alexia's great presentation has helped put her in second place.

0:24:560:25:00

But as more and more skaters take to the ice,

0:25:020:25:04

Alexia drops down to eighth position...

0:25:040:25:06

..before it's Beccy's turn to fight for the title.

0:25:070:25:10

I was very focused going into the free programme.

0:25:120:25:15

I just really wanted to skate well.

0:25:150:25:17

It all comes down to this one performance.

0:25:220:25:24

You're fighting for your skating, keep everything for them.

0:25:260:25:30

We're with you. Brave...

0:25:300:25:32

-Go on, Rebecca.

-Go!

0:25:320:25:34

Whoo! Go, Beccy!

0:25:340:25:37

MUSIC: Say You Do by Sigala feat. Imani Williams & DJ Fresh

0:25:390:25:42

I was afraid not to mess up the easy elements,

0:25:500:25:54

because I knew that I was only halfway through my programme

0:25:540:25:58

and it really wasn't over yet.

0:25:580:25:59

Beccy's programme looked almost faultless.

0:26:190:26:21

But has she done enough to beat Alexia and the rest of the pack?

0:26:230:26:26

She needs more than 83 points.

0:26:270:26:29

Amazing skating.

0:26:290:26:32

-Amazing skating.

-Really, really good.

0:26:320:26:35

It was super.

0:26:350:26:36

Listen...

0:26:360:26:37

-JUDGE:

-..85.21.

0:26:370:26:40

WHOOPING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:420:26:45

She's done it.

0:26:460:26:47

I can't believe I'm British champion.

0:26:470:26:50

I really did not expect that.

0:26:500:26:53

I'm in a state of shock.

0:26:530:26:54

It was really good to see Beccy do so well.

0:26:560:26:58

She did the best, and she won.

0:26:580:27:00

With Beccy, I didn't expect anything less.

0:27:000:27:03

'She's first. She's British champion.'

0:27:060:27:08

I'm very happy.

0:27:080:27:09

'Fantastic.'

0:27:090:27:11

Winning the British was

0:27:110:27:14

a reality check on

0:27:140:27:15

why you put so much hard work into something.

0:27:150:27:19

I maybe haven't got a place big enough for this trophy yet -

0:27:210:27:26

I am definitely going to make room for it.

0:27:260:27:30

There's no doubt about that.

0:27:300:27:31

Next time on Ice Stars:

0:27:380:27:40

The Icicles march into battle...

0:27:420:27:45

It was intense between us and the French.

0:27:450:27:48

How good does that look?

0:27:480:27:49

..Josh and Kloe get Christmassy...

0:27:490:27:51

..and Charlie needs to fight his way back onto the ice.

0:27:540:27:57

I've just done my worst ever race.

0:27:570:27:59

Ice hockey player Liam takes on men twice his age in an action-packed match. Meanwhile, there's drama for synchro skater Aimee as the Icicles are put through their paces at the dress rehearsal for a big competition. And when solo skaters Kloe and Beccy head to the British Championships... guess who's back?
