Following some advice from ITV colleague and former contestant Alex Beresford, Ria explained she was “immersing” herself in the show.
She commented: “I’m immersing myself in it, and really trying to just make time to be present and to capture moments and have selfies with people and just have one-to-one chats.
“And basically just really enjoy it because it’s such a special show.
“There are so many great people that work on this, from the runners to the costume department, to the makeup to the hair people.”
Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV.
