Dancing On Ice 2013 line up: Fabrice Muamba wants to join show

Footie star Fabrice Muamba has revealed he wants to join the Dancing On Ice 2013 line up.

The Arsenal player was forced into early retirement after suffering a heart attack during a game, and was clinically dead for over an hour.

Now almost back to full health, Fabrice is clearly looking for something else sporty to focus on, but his insurance company has other ideas.

He said: "I was approached to do 'Dancing On Ice', but that's more dangerous than football.

"My insurance doesn't cover that. But I'd do 'Strictly Come Dancing'. I love my salsa, so I'd be well up for that."

It was reported earlier this year that [cat]Dancing On Ice[/cat] 2013 bosses are reportedly struggling to sign sports stars for the new series.

Most of this year’s reality shows have jumped on the Olympic bandwagon, with Olympians appearing in I’m A Celebrity, Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity Big Brother.

But Dancing On Ice’s risks compared to sitting in a house for three weeks is putting people off.

The Daily Star Sunday claimed that TV chiefs were finding it hard to convince athletes to compete, over fears they’ll get injured.

Dancing On Ice judge Louie Spence said: “The show would love an ­Olympian but there is no way they are going to take any risk. They are not ­going to put their next Olympics or world championships in jeopardy.

“You can easily pick up a knee injury on the ice that could be for life."
