Olympic boxer Luke Campbell is set to star on 'Dancing on Ice'.
The gold medal winner has already been spotted in training, and will find himself going head to head against fellow Olympian, bronze-winning gymnast, Beth Tweddle in the competition.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses are determined to get the best line-up they can for this year's show and hope some double Olympic magic will boost ratings.
"Luke was one of the hunks of this year's Games and producers hope he will bring in a whole new audience."
Bantamweight Champion Luke has been spotted at his local ice rink in Hull by keen eyed fans.
One tweeted: "Luke Campbell is training at the same ice arena for figure skating as me."
Another wrote on Twitter: "Luke Campbell at Hull Ice Arena getting prepared."
Also in the frame to star in next year's competition are former rugby player Gareth Thomas, funnyman Joe Pasquale, ex-'EastEnders' star Matt Lapinskas, 'Coronation Street's Samia Ghadie, 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Lauren Goodger, model Pamela Anderson and former TV presenter Anthea Turner.
'Dancing on Ice' will return in January on ITV1.
