The sportsman-turned-commentator is said to have started practicing for ITV's ice skating reality TV series - which will return to screens in January - as show bosses line up the most diverse celebrities to take part in the show yet.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Producers want as many different famous faces to take part in the show as possible."

Former Steps singer Faye Tozer is also said to be in training for the show, as is wine critic Jilly Goolden. Other stars who producers are keen to take part in the show are said to include former pop star Vanilla Ice - best known for his 1990 hit 'Ice Ice Baby' - professional dancer Matthew Cutler and Iraq war veteran Johnson Beharry, who was awarded the Victoria Cross.

It has also previously been reported that Robbie Williams' friend, TV presenter Jonathan Wilkes, and Kerry Katona have been in practicing for the show.

Although some celebrities have already started learning how to skate, ITV says it is still making decisions as to who to include.

The source added: "We haven't confirmed the line up at this early stage."

The format of the 'Dancing On Ice' - which will enter its sixth series next year - will see it undergo a major revamp and the programme will also be recorded at a different studio in Surrey.
