REBEKAH Vardy unveiled her Dancing on Ice partner as Andy Buchanan even though she'd hoped to get Matt Evers.
Becky, 38, debuted Andy as her partner in a cute selfie where she begs him to not "drop" her.
The WAG posted the selfie to Instagram from the ice rink where the DOI couples are rehearsing ahead of the next series.
Wearing black active wear, Becky posed behind Andy who was wearing a blue knit jumped.
She captioned the pic: "Don't drop me!"
The mum-of-five wanted to be paired with Matt, 44, to avoid being the victim of any love-cheat rumours.
Matt and Steps singer Ian “H” Watkins were the ITV show’s first same-sex partnership this year.
She is happily wed to Leicester City striker Jamie, and believed Matt could have helped her focus on rehearsals ahead of the new series early next year.
A source said: “Becky loves Matt.
"He’s one of the most famous skaters on the show and he’s gay, which means she can spend all her time training and on routines without being linked to him romantically.
“She’s really happy in her relationship with Jamie and doesn’t want anything to rock the boat."
The ITV series is set to start early next year.
However, an ITV source insisted: “There is no truth to this at all. No such conversations took place. Show producers decide the skating partnership."
As it turns out, producers decided to pair Matt with Towie voiceover Denise Van Outen, 46.
But Becky did not seem disappointed with Matt, saying it was an "extra surprise" to meet him.
After asking him not to drop her during rehearsals, Becky wrote: "Joking aside, I woke up this morning feeling grateful for such an amazing day with the Dancing on Ice team yesterday.
"Such a delight to meet everyone and feeling lucky to be working with such a lovely cast and crew ❤️.
"An extra surprise was meeting my wonderful skate pro @andybuchanan2 I am so excited to be partnered with you and am ready for some hard work! I can’t wait to get started!"
Andy also said he was "thrilled" to be partnered with Becky.
