The 57-year-old music star revealed he will be taking to the rink when the show kicks off in early 2022 during an appearance on ITV's 'This Morning' on Monday (04.10.21).

Speaking to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Bez said: "I’m really looking forward to it - learning a new skill and I can’t wait for the Christmas ice rinks and really show off.”

The dancer - who has appeared on several TV shows, including 'Celebrity MasterChef', 'Gogglebox' and 'Bargain Hunt', over the years - has warned viewers not to expect too much from him as he's got no skating experience and at the moment looks like "Bambi on ice" in rehearsals.

He added: "At the moment, it’s more like Bambi on ice, rather than 'Dancing on Ice'. How I got picked I don’t know because I was absolutely awful at the audition, but they must have seen some potential there.

“I think that’s why they picked me because I haven’t got any bad habits because I can’t skate. Last year at Christmas I ended up borrowing my son’s penguin to get round the ice rink.”

'Coronation Street' star Sally Dynevor was also announced as a contestant on 'Dancing On Ice' this morning, revealing her participation on 'Lorraine'.

Sally, 58, said: "This is a massive challenge. It really, really is. I’m not getting any younger, I’ve just got to take every opportunity I get so that when I’m old I can say you know what? I gave it a go.

"I'm 58 now, if I don't do it this year then I'll never do it ... I'm doing this for myself, to give me a bit of confidence.

“Now everyone knows I’m doing it I can’t back out can I?! And I’m so scared!”
