But it seems that Lou might have an advantage for when she steps onto the rink.

During the pandemic, Lou got into rollerskating and would show off her moves on TikTok.

Speaking about her hidden talent, she told The i at the time: "I worked out recently that the adrenaline I get from the skate parks is the same as I get from gigs."

“It’s as embarrassing as when you start comedy, because there are all these cool kids, who are really good at it and you’re scrambling around like a toddler.”
