Dancing On Ice hopeful Vanilla Ice has reportedly managed to convince bosses of the show to allow him to skate to his big hit Ice Ice Baby. According to The Sun, Ice - real name Robert Van Winkle - will dance to the hit rap song this Sunday alongside professional partner Katie Stainsby.

The American rapper is said to have told producers his performance to the track will help attract ratings for this week's Ultimate Skills Test. A spokesperson confirmed to the tabloid: "We are very happy to confirm that Vanilla Ice will be skating to Ice Ice Baby during Ultimate Skills Week.

"All the celebrities will have to do a jump, step and spin in their routines and will be marked on them. Vanilla is very happy he has been given his classic track for such an important weekend on the show."

Talking about the song, Ice said: "Everyone loves that track. I guarantee that when you're 80 years old and that song comes on you'll remember what you were doing when you first heard it."

Ice Ice Baby reached number one in the UK in December of 1990.
