EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook is among the celebrities set to appear on the new series of Dancing on Ice.

She joins Hollyoaks actor Kieron Richardson and ex-Coronation Street star Danny Young, who are believed to have signed up for the ice-dancing show when it returns to ITV1 in the new year.

The line-up also includes ex-Eternal singer Kelle Bryan, former Holby City actor Jeremy Sheffield, Gordon Ramsay’s wife Tana and eighties singer – and Simon Cowell’s X Factor advisor – Sinitta, who have all been seen in training with ice-skating legend Jayne Torvill.

Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills, ex-England goalkeeper Peter Shilton and The Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack complete the line-up.

An insider told The Sun: “Most of the celebrities have never put on a pair of skates before, so the training has been a pretty scary experience for them.

“Jayne and the other trainers have helped put them through their paces and now they can’t wait to get going on the show.”
