Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett and former EastEnder Joe Swash are among those set to don skates for the next series of Dancing on Ice, according to reports.

The Sun says that Pallett – who plays Jo Sugden in the soap – and Swash, aka Walford’s Mickey Miller, have been training at ice rinks around London in preparation for the show.

Pallett revealed earlier this week she would be leaving Emmerdale later this year, while Swash’s final scenes as Mickey are due to be seen this summer.

Hollyoaks trio Jennifer Metcalf, Jeremy Edwards and Ben Hull are also being tipped to take part in the ice-dancing competition.

And other celebrities reportedly set to don ice skates for the show include model Caprice, Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding, Corrie star Matthew Crompton, G4 tenor Jonathan Ansell and Lost Prophets singer Ian Watkins.

“The next Dancing On Ice really is going to be a feast for the eyes,” a source told the paper.

“The whole line-up is full of the sexiest stars of the small screen.”

This year’s series was won by former Hear’Say singer Suzanne Shaw, who beat Hollyoaks star Chris Fountain in the final.
