Dancing On Ice winner was inspired by Richard Carlson

Suzanne Shaw became 2008 winner of Dancing On Ice last week and her self belief was inspired by a special book.

The former Hear’Say star, 26, learnt to use positive thinking – and it paid off.

‘The book that changed my life is You Can Be Happy No Matter What by Richard Carlson,’ she admits. ‘I find a lot of self-help books too spiritual, but this explains how your brain works and how to make a thought into a reality.’

Suzanne was dumped by former fiancé Darren Day – dad to her son Corey, 3 – but now lives in Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire with new boyfriend, DJ Jason King.

There she loves to watch Kiefer Sutherland in 24 with a class of Chardonnay and a plate of chips soaked in salt and vinegar.

‘I’m addicted to 24. I’m dedicating all my spare time to watching it,’ she says. ‘I’m on season six and I love it.’
