Labour peer Baroness Oona King has signed on for the next series of 'Dancing On Ice'
Baroness Oona King is to compete in 'Dancing On Ice'.
The Labour peer - who lost her Bethnal Green seat to former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant George Galloway - has begun training for the celebrity skating contest, which returns to ITV1 in January.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Oona is a lively character and can't wait to take part."
Oona's involvement comes after Conservative MP Nadine Dorries agreed to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' and show bosses are hoping seeing her political rival's treatment on the tough jungle contest won't make her have second thoughts.
The insider added: "She was in the running for it way before it was announced that Nadine Dorries was in 'I'm A Celebrity...'.
"So hopefully she won't change her mind when she sees the reaction the Tory receives."
Oona will find herself competing on the show - which is hosted by Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley - alongside 'Baywatch' actress Pamela Anderson, former rugby player Gareth Thomas and 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Lauren Goodger.
