Actress Faye Brookes is the fourth celebrity skater confirmed to take part in Dancing on Ice 2021.
Faye appeared live on Lorraine to confirm the news this morning and joined the previously announced Myleene Klass, Joe-Warren Plant and Denise Van Outen in the cast of 2021.
Faye told Lorraine: “This is the first time I think people are just going to see me, not being a character… Just being me – Faye!”
Speaking about former Coronation Street colleagues, Jane Danson and Brooke Vincent who have both previously taken part in Dancing on Ice, Faye told Lorraine she’d had to keep the secret from them until today’s big announcement saying: “As soon as this interview is over I can contact them but I’ve obviously had to keep this to myself. It’s the biggest secret I’ve kept in my life! I saw Brooke yesterday and I was desperate to tell her but I thought one more day and I’ll be able to. She’ll be my first text message after I’ve finished this interview.”
Returning to ITV in the new year, each week twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners as they try to impress both the panel and the viewers who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby once again return to present the show and the expert panel of Torvill and Dean, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo will all resume their roles as judges.
