Charli XCX wants to be an ice skater

Charli XCX wanted to be an ice skater as a child.

The 'Doing It' hitmaker has revealed she would have loved to have been a figure skater if she wasn't a popular musician, even though she didn't seriously consider any other professions other than music as a youngster.

When asked what she would be doing if she wasn't a singer, she revealed: "I don't know because I never really thought about anything that seriously, other than making music, but I really like ice skating."

The singer explained her interest in ice skating began as a young child when she became "fascinated" by the hobby, and dreamt about owning the costumes she saw figure skaters wearing.

She elaborated: "When I was younger I was very fascinated with figure skaters, I thought their outfits were great, I thought they were always very beautiful, so to be an ice skater would be cool."

The 22-year-old star - who recently released her second studio album 'Sucker' - admitted a career move is unlikely however because she is not skilled at the winter sport, and while she can do some tricks including skating backwards, she needs a helping hand to get her going.

She told 4Music: "I can go backwards a little bit, but someone has to push me a little bit."
