Ben, 36, was speaking to press ahead of his debut on the ice this weekend.
Asked what she’s got that is “unique” in comparison to the rest of the competition, Rachel replied: “Oh my goodness… You’ve just go into it as yourself and take the opportunity to learn.
“It’s such a fun, amazing show.
“I just want to go in and do the best I can.
“Ultimately you have to bring yourself and have fun. You’re putting on a show.
“That’s what is so special. We’re all bringing something different and our own unique thing.”
Cheekily answering the question for her, Ben added: “That and you’re the sexiest woman in the world, Rachel.”
Ben shares two children Aoife, nine, and Tadgh, six, with his ex-wife Una.

He was unfaithful to The Saturdays singer, later admitting: “I was the one who committed adultery… It’s not ideal but we’re very amicable.”
Ben married his second wife Jackie Belanoff Smith a year and a half after his marriage broke down.
She told MailOnline he’d never cheat on her, adding: “From day one he’s never made me feel paranoid or insecure…
“He’s not once worried me. I think you just know, deep down, when that could happen and it’s not a possibility with us, so I’m not concerned.”
Rachel will miss Dancing On Ice this week after fracturing her wrist.
The 43-year-old was due to skate alongside Brendyn Hatfield but has been forced to pull out after falling on the ice during training and sustaining the injury.
A Dancing On Ice rep said: “Due to an injury sustained in training and on the expert advice from the Dancing on Ice medical professionals, Rachel Stevens will not skate in this Sunday’s show.
“We look forward to her returning to the show next weekend.”
Rachel, who has two daughters with her husband Alex Bourne, will skate for the first time in the competition in Week 3 on Sunday, January 30.
