Boyzone's Mikey Graham says concentrating on training for ITV1's Dancing on Ice has helped him get over the death of Stephen Gately. He also admitted that hearing his friend's voice on the band's upcoming single was "absolutely heartbreaking".

Graham is one of 14 celebrities poised to take to the ice when the show returns for its fifth series. Others taking part include Emily Atack from The Inbetweeners, Gary Lucy from The Bill and Kieron Richardson from Hollyoaks.
