Rachel Johnson was turned down from the Dancing On Ice line up, she has revealed.

The journalist, and brother of MP Boris Johnson, recently took part in Celebrity Big Brother.


Rachel became the second housemate to be evicted last Friday night in a double exit alongside Maggie Olivier.

But it could have been very different, with Rachel saying she was originally lined up for Dancing On Ice this month on ITV.

"I’ll never do reality TV again. But I will be considering any TV offers that may be coming my way," she said after her exit. "They asked me to do Dancing On Ice a while ago and I actually went to Ally Pally [Alexandra Palace] and did lots of zooming around."

Rachel said she wasn't sure why ITV had turned her down, adding: "I don’t know, I don’t think I was good enough."

Speaking to the The Sun newspaper, Rachel added: "I’ve been asked to do a lot of reality TV shows in my life.

"This is the one I’ve done and I think it’s going to be a once in a lifetime thing."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.

Ann Widdecombe, Daniel O’Reilly, John Barnes and Amanda Barrie all face the next eviction, as things stand.

But in a twist, it'll be the housemates deciding who goes.


The results of the secret eviction will be revealed in Monday evening's highlights show.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2018 final takes place on Friday, February 2.
