Dancing On Ice's Todd Carty has finally learned how to get moving on the ice (but not much else!)

Dancing On Ice star Todd Carty is struggling more than ever on the ice.

The former soap star is one of fourteen past contestants returning to the ice for a special all-star series this year.

But Todd admitted to having barely learned how to get moving, and little else.

“When you put those ten-inch blades beneath you, anything can happen. I’ve learned new skills like stopping, and that’s about it," he explained. "I can start, they give me a gentle shove, but fingers will be crossed all the way around.”

But the former Grange Hill actor added to The Sun newspaper: “It’s lovely to be asked back.”

Meanwhile, Ray Quinn told the tabloid that this year's line up of stars would be putting on routines not normally seen until half way through a 'normal' series.

“The competition is so high. We’re all starting on a level now. None of us are starting from scratch," he said. “The first show is going to be what you would normally see on week six. Nobody realises how difficult it is.

“Everybody keeps telling me it’s at a much higher standard than it was when I did it.

“It’s great to be back, it really is.”

Dancing On Ice starts on January 5 at 6:30PM on ITV1.
