CHILDREN from Liverpool’s Total Gymnastics – the company Beth Tweddle set up – have sent their best wishes to the gymnast ahead of Sunday’s Dancing on Ice final.
The Olympic bronze medallist and MBE is favourite to win ITV’s celebrity competition but said she is not taking her support for granted.
Beth said: “I’m really excited that all the gymnasts in my academies are supporting me and rooting for me to win Dancing on Ice.
“Hopefully I will get to see them all when I have finished and see what exciting skills they’ve been learning.”
The classes are put on across Merseyside with the hope of finding the next generation of gymnasts to follow in the footsteps on Beth.
The Dancing on Ice final takes place on Sunday, March 10.
A VIGIL will mark the unsolved murder of tragic Liverpool teenager Andrew Jones ten years ago.

His family believe those in the group have hidden behind a wall of silence to conceal the identity of his killer.
On Mothers’ Day – Sunday, March 10 – mum Christine and dad Andy will march with supporters through the city centre to the spot where he was attacked in Hanover Street in 2003.
Christine, 51, said: “I should be receiving flowers from Andrew on Mothers’ Day but instead I will be laying flowers at the spot where he was murdered. My life revolves around getting justice for Andrew.”
