Mirfield girl’s tan challenge on Dancing on Ice
“They invited me down and arranged for me to work on this series, which is really exciting.
“I’m there for the whole weekend and get to work with most of the contestants, who are really lovely.
“They love the work I do. Each spray tan lasts up to 10 days, so if they manage to stay on the show I’ll be working them for weeks.
“How much tan they get depends very much on what sort of costume they are wearing for each show. Some are more revealing than others so sometimes it’s a lot of work.”
Ashleigh was a pupil at Crossley Fields Junior School and Castle Hall School in Mirfield before moving on to Huddersfield New College.
She studied media, English, Spanish and business studies before leaving to work in the beauty business.
She said: “The celebs and their skating partners get a spray tan each week and we have to ensure they are looking stunning.
“The tanning room is usually a hive of activity and we have great fun with the skaters and with their partners.
“But I have to say the most fun is when Chico or Matt Wolfenden arrive for their tans – they are a breath of fresh air and lots of fun”.
