Dancing On Ice 2013: Chico wants to take part again!

Chico (Dancing On Ice)

Dancing On Ice star Chico has admitted he'd love to take part in the show again.

The former X Factor star competed in the show earlier this year, a late replacement after Chesney Hawks injured himself during training.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz this week, Chico revealed he'd love to compete again.

He said: "I'd jump at the chance. I would love to be part of it again. It's just an incredible show and you know it's just a wonderful show to be part of and to learn to be able to skate at that level in just a short space of time is just, wow, incredible."

The new series in January will see the return of harsh ice panelist Jason Gardiner, who Chico didn't have to face, but the singer is glad that Jason will be back.

He added: "I'm happy for him but I really do hope that he doesn't overstep the mark. I think constructive criticism is good but when you overstep it, it's not really cool.

"I think there's a fine line between constructive criticism and nasty. As long as he keeps it constructive, it's great. When he goes nasty, it's not cool."

Celebs lined up for the new series have included Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, who recently appeared on Channel 5′s Celebrity Big Brother.

Also seen in training have been boxer Luke Campbell, gymnast Beth Tweddle, as well as soaps stars Samia Ghadie and Matt Lapinskas and telly host Anthea Turner.

Dancing On Ice airs on ITV1 from January.
