Liberty Poole, Ben Foden, Regan Gascoigne and Stef Reid confirmed for Dancing on Ice
Liberty Poole, Ben Foden, Regan Gascoigne and Stef Reid have been confirmed for 'Dancing on Ice'.
The 'Love Island' star, rugby union player, the son of legendary footballer Paul Gascoigne, and the Paralympian will get their skates on next year to take part in the ITV show.
Liberty - who shot to fame in this summer's series of the ITV2 dating show - said: "I grew up watching 'Dancing On Ice' and my mum actually used to be a figure skater.
"I ice skate as a hobby sometimes so I can get around the rink but I can't do any tricks, no pirouetting or anything so I'm really looking forward to pushing myself and learning as much as I possibly can.
"Not just skating around the ice but actually dancing on ice. Bring it on!"
Ben is keen to learn a new skill when he takes part in the show.
He said: "I used to skate a little when I was a kid.
"I'd go to ice discos when I was 15, 16 and you'd always see these kids that could do pirouettes that had a proper dancing background.
"I like the idea of learning a new sport and a new skill.
"I'm quite competitive as well so I like the challenge of competing against others doing something that I'm not necessarily good at!"
Singer and dancer Regan will fulfil a lifelong dream when he takes to the ice next year.
He said: "Obviously I dance and love dancing but it's the skill of this.
"I've always wanted to do it. Always! Ever since I was a kid!"
Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain', Stef said: "I have some really exciting news.
"I'm going to be picking up a new sport this winter and it comes with a little bit of showbiz.
"I'm going to be a contestant on 'Dancing on Ice' and it's a little bit scary but I cannot wait."
Liberty, Ben, Regan, and Stef will join 'Coronation Street' legend Sally Dynevor and Happy Mondays dancer Bez after the pair confirmed yesterday (04.10.21) they are taking part in the series.
Each week, 12 celebs will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
