Now Rachel is getting her skates on as she becomes the seventh celebrity confirmed to be taking part in Dancing on Ice 2022.

Joining Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning to exclusively reveal the news today (5 October), Rachel said: "It now feels really real, this is really happening.

"I’m so excited, obviously really nervous. It's one of those things, until you do it you don’t know what’s going to happen."

On whether she has skated before, Rachel said, “Only with the Penguin with my kids you know every Christmas.

"I did it when I was 10 (years old) and dabbled in it for a little bit and I really loved it but I’m very wobbly.”

On why she chose to take part, Rachel added: "The opportunity came up and I thought what an amazing opportunity to learn a new skill.

They're joined by Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor, Paralympic athelete Stef Reid and singer and dancer Regan Gascoigne.
