The former Daybreak presenter pledged to bring her own sense of style to the ITV contest when she makes her debut alongside Phillip Schofield tomorrow (January 8).
"I did like the way Holly always wore her long dresses and it suits the occasion here," she told The Sun. "I'll probably go long on Sunday.
"Maybe a bit of sparkles but no cleavage! I'm lacking in the Holly Willobooby department! I'll keep it simple. I think I will ease my way in gently on that front."
She added: "Holly's dresses were always so long and flowing and gorgeous and she looked so stunning in them."
The debate about Bleakley's Dancing on Ice fashion choices has continued online, with new judge Louie Spence tweeting her a picture of him posing outside a shop window displaying an elegant evening dress.
"I'm thinking this for tomorrow nite for DOI hope @clbleakley not doing red ???" he wrote, to which Bleakley responded: "not telling gorg! X"
