Corey Feldman wants to perform a tribute to Michael Jackson on 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 40-year-old actor was friends with the 'Thriller' singer - who died in June 2009 - and he is hoping he stays in the ITV1 skating show long enough so he can pay homage to him by dancing to his music.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm secretly working on it but I don't know if they are going to let me do it. A lot of it comes down to whether they can get the rights to the music. The fact that I am friends with the Jackson family may help. I'd love to skate to 'Billie Jean' as well."
The 'Lost Boys' star - who is being partnered by professional skater Brooke Castile - will take to the ice for the first time on Sunday (15.01.12) and he has hired a bodyguard called Dre to help protect him from his female fans.
A source said: "Dre follows Corey everywhere. He's become quite a fixture backstage. Everyone loves him. Though we're not quite sure why he's needed. Corey may have starred in loads of films but he could probably walk round Elstree and no-one would realise who he is."
