Dan Whiston's new year eatery expansion
'Dancing on Ice' star Dan Whiston and former judge Karen Barber are spending the new year opening their second Subway restaurant
Dan Whiston is opening a new Subway franchise in the new year.
The 'Dancing on Ice' professional skater already owns a franchise of the US sandwich restaurant with Karen Barber, who used to be a judge on the ITV1 talent show, and the pair are looking forward to expanding their eatery ownership.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Me and Karen Barber own a Subway franchise so we are looking to open another in the new year. As much as we love it, we did draw the line at having any subs for Christmas dinner, though!"
While Dan has been busy training for the forthcoming 'Dancing on Ice' series - which sees him partnered with Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle - he will still be treating himself to some calorific snacks over the festive period.
The 36-year-old star added: "Because I've been working out really hard and going to the gym it means I can still eat some nice food over the festive period. I just believe in working hard and playing hard, but I'll still be having a few sausage rolls!"
'Dancing on Ice' returns to ITV on January 6.
