Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is being lined up to take part in 'Dancing On Ice'.

The ex-footballer - who managed the national team from 1996 to 1999, before he was sacked following his comments about disabled people - is in talks to appear in next year's series of the ITV1 ice skating show as producers think he'll be a great signing.

An ITV insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We're delighted with the quality being lined up. We would love Glenn to be part of the new show. He is a football legend and a guaranteed ratings winner."

As well as 54-year-old Glenn - who also played for Tottenham and managed Chelsea - bosses are also lining up ex-boxing world champ Steve Collins, 47, Winter Olympics gold medallist Amy Williams, 29, and gardening expert Diarmuid Gavin, 48.

The trio have been spotted at an ice rink trying out in front of researchers in a bid to win a spot on the show, which sees celebrities paired with a professional ice skater while being taught by Olympic champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
