Former S Club Seven star, Rachel Stevens is getting her skates on as she becomes the seventh celebrity confirmed to be taking part in Dancing on Ice 2022.
Joining Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning to exclusively reveal the news, Rachel said: “It now feels really real, this is really happening. I’m so excited, obviously really nervous. It's one of those things, until you do it you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
On whether she has skated before, Rachel said, “Only with the Penguin with my kids you know every Christmas. I did it when I was 10 (years old) and dabbled in it for a little bit and I really loved it but I’m very wobbly.”
On why she chose to take part, Rachel said, “The opportunity came up and I thought what an amazing opportunity to learn a new skill. I love the whole idea of working with a team and your partner and also for my girls to be a part of this. They are at an age now where they love all the costumes.”
Returning to ITV in the new year, twelve celebrities will be taking on the challenge to dance on ice. Liberty, Ben and Regan will be joining 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.
