Rapper Vanilla Ice and ladies' man Calum Best are reportedly in training to appear in the new series of 'Dancing On Ice'
Vanilla Ice is being lined-up to star in 'Dancing On Ice'.
The rapper is set show off his ice-skating skills in the ITV1 show and has reportedly been joined in training by ladies' man Calum Best, son of late footballing legend George Best.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses think Vanilla Ice and Calum will be big draws and are eager to get them."
Calum - who has starred in numerous other reality TV shows, including Love Island' and 'Celebrity Come Dine With Me' - is hoping taking part in the show will boost his public image.
As well as Vanilla Ice and Calum, it was recently reported war hero Johnson Beharry is preparing to appear on the programme.
The former serviceman - who was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military award for bravery in the British armed forces, after saving the life of two comrades in Iraq - has started training for the ice-skating show to see how he would cope with the strains and pressures of competing every week.
An insider said: "Johnson would be an exciting addition and bring a new dimension to the refreshed show. The fact he is already highly regarded by the public helps. He is a very determined character."
Robbie Williams' friend, TV presenter Jonathan Wilkes, and Kerry Katona are also both believed to be in training.
