Shayne Ward is to take part in 'Dancing on Ice'.
The former 'X Factor' winner has signed up for the next series of the ITV1 show, which sees celebrities taught ice skating routines by professionals, and he has already be working out so he looks good in the Lycra outfits.
A source said: "Shayne has natural rhythm and is confident he'll really get into skating. But he's most concerned about pulling off the pink sequinned spandex look."
The show returns to TV screens in January and other stars set to take part include former 'Baywatch' babe Pamela Anderson, Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle and soap stars Matt Lapinskas and Samia Ghadie.
A source said of Pamela's inclusion: "Pammy will bring a bit of Hollywood glitz and glamour to the show, which we'll all need come the winter.
"She's no stranger to dancing in front of viewers after her stints in America."
Speaking about Beth, Matt and Samia an insider added: "Olympians are competitive people so it was a no-brainer to sign one up.
"Beth has great poise for obvious reasons and was keen to give it a go.
"We've seen her on the ice and she's very good. She'll be a great contender. Matt and Samia will be great too. They're good skaters and our viewers love the soap stars."
