The 42 year old said of her signing: “I have a 13 year old daughter and a nine year old daughter who are obsessed with ice skating.
“They both ice skate and I stand there and I hold the coats. That’s my role – to tie the shoelaces and hold the coats. Now it’s my turn to learn and I can’t wait!”
Billie Faiers – RUMOURED
Billie Faiers, 30, has reportedly signed up for the hit show, with fans believing the baby bottle emoji in the show’s teaser represents The Mummy Diaries star.

“Becky is also really good at skating. She’s ready to shine.”
Jason Donovan – RUMOURED
Jason Donovan, 52, has fans convinced the soap emoji used in the teaser could be a nod to his iconic role as Scott Robinson in Neighbours.
Since quitting the Australian soap in 1989, he has become a fixture on UK television, starring on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and Strictly Come Dancing in 2006 and 2011 respectively.
A source said: “Jason is a great signing for the show as he has plenty of star power.
“He knows how to dance but if he thinks it’ll be any help once he’s on the ice he has another thing coming.
“He’s hoping to rank higher in this show than he did on Strictly, he just needs to find out if he can stay upright once he has his skates on.”
Faye Brookes – RUMOURED
Former Coronation Street star Faye Brookes, 33, after quitting the hit soap last year.
A source said: “Faye will bring the glamour to the ice and DOI bosses are over the moon she’s chosen to put her skates on this year.

It is believed that Denise, who has performed on stages on the West End and Broadway, could be snapping up £40,000 if she heads to the rink.
Luke Trotman – RUMOURED
Dr Alex George might not be the only Love Island star heading to the ice next year, with 2020 runner-up Luke Trotman said to have signed up.

The 23 year old was spotted leaving auditions with Denise and Wayne, sparking rumours he has signed up alongside them.
Baga Chipz – RUMOURED
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Baga Chipz is thought to be the first ever drag queen to take to the ice.

A source said of her and Rufus: “Neither of them are going to play it safe – on the show or on the ice. The next series is certainly not going to be light on entertainment.”
Colin Jackson – RUMOURED
Colin Jackson, 53, is said to be determined to reach the final of the hit ITV show early next year.
An insider said: “Colin is a real coup for Dancing On Ice as they already know he has moves.
