Guess who won’t be holding the coats at the side of the rink anymore! I am so, SO excited to be joining the cast of @dancingonice. My girls have always wanted me to do this but I’ve always been too scared someone will skate over my fingers! Anyway, I want to make them proud and show them I’m up for a challenge when completely out of my comfort zone but most of all, I want a bum like Jlo! ⛸????

“Anyway, I want to make them proud and show them I’m up for a challenge when completely out of my comfort zone but most of all, I want a bum like Jlo! ⛸????” she added.
The news comes just one week after Myleene announced her engagement to boyfriend Simon Motson.
The presenter took to Instagram to share the exciting news, after her businessman fiancé proposed with a 9-carat diamond ring.
“I am the happiest girl in the world! Buy a hat guys!” she wrote.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine, Myleene revealed that Simon had popped the question last month on the five-year anniversary of their first date.
Simon transformed their garden shed into a replica of London’s Little House private members’ club, filling the garden with fairy lights and photographs.
“I was absolutely blown away,” she told the publication.
“He even replicated the dinner we had – burger and fries, followed by cherry pie.
“When he got down on one knee and started fumbling around under the table, I thought he was joking. Then I thought: ‘Oh my God, he’s for real.’ I was completely speechless.”
Simon added: “It’s quite a blur but I think I said something along the lines of: ‘Myleene Angela Klass, will you marry me?’
“And I had to say it again… and I think I said it a third time. Finally she said yes and we were both in tears.”
Jason Donovan is another celeb hotly tipped to appear on the hit ice-skating competition, with a source previously telling The Sun: “Jason is a great signing for the show as he has plenty of star power.
“He knows how to dance but if he thinks it’ll be any help once he’s on the ice he has another thing coming.”
“He’s hoping to rank higher in this show than he did on Strictly, he just needs to find out if he can stay upright once he has his skates on,” the insider added.
Dancing On Ice will return to our screens in January on ITV.
