Theatre star Michael Ball will appear as a guest judge on Dancing On Ice this Sunday.
The former Hairspray star will be filling in for head judge Robin Cousins, who will be covering the Winter Olympics for the BBC for the next two weeks.
According to The Sun, Michael will be unveiled during tonight’s Dancing On Ice Friday spin-off show, presented by Ben Shephard and Coleen Nolan.
Michael has been signed up for one show but could return the following week if he performs well.
A source told the paper: “Even though Michael isn’t an ice dancer, he has had loads of theatre experience and will be judging the contestants on performance skills,” said a source.
It has also been suggested that Michael is being lined up to become one of ITV’s new faces and is believed to have filmed a chat show pilot this week.
Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday at 6.45pm on ITV1.
