Former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Brendan Cole has been confirmed at the eighth celebrity to be taking part in Dancing on Ice 2022.
Appearing on Loose Women today, Brendan said: “I’m so, so excited. It’s been a while coming now. I’ve known I’d be doing the show for quite some time and I want to get started, I’m so excited to be on the show.”
On his ice-skating experience to date he said: “I’ve had one go. I’m a fairly confident person and I like to think I’m going to be good at what I put my hand to or my feet to! I was thinking okay I’m going to be fine, I’m going to be out there and I was terrible. I was a bit wobbly. You can expect to be a bit wobbly on ice but I was hoping I was going to be better than I was. I’ve got time to learn. I’m just going to embrace the whole experience and I’m very excited to get started.”
Returning to ITV in the new year, twelve celebrities will be taking on the challenge to dance on ice. Brendan will be joining the likes of Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor, Happy Mondays dancer Bez and Paraympian Stef Reid who have confirmed that they are taking part.
Each week they will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
Dancing On Ice returns in January 2022 on ITV.
