Olympic Gymnast Beth Tweddle has been spotted in training for Dancing On Ice 2013.
The Sporting star was pictured at a local ice skating rink this week as she began preparations for the upcoming series.
“Olympians are competitive people so it was a no-brainer to sign one up,” a source claimed recently. “Beth has great poise for obvious reasons and was keen to give it a go.
“We’ve seen her on the ice and she’s very good. She’ll be a great contender.”
Beth, who won her first ever Olympic medal in London 2012 in the summer, has been training with Dancing On Ice professional skater Daniel Whiston, who has previously been partnered with Jennifer Ellison and Kerry Katona on the ITV series.
Other stars tipped to take part in the new series are said to include Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger, Olympic boxer Luke Campbell and soap stars Matt Lapinskas and Samia Ghadie.
The show kicks off on ITV1 in the new year.
