Charlene Tilton signed up for Dancing On Ice after death of her fiancé

Charlene Tilton (Dancing On Ice)

Dallas star Charlene Tilton has revealed how she signed up for Dancing On Ice this year following the death of finance in 2009.

Speaking to The Sun, Charlene explained how her partner's sudden death had spurred her on to 'have a go' at the competition.

"I decided to do it because my fiancé passed away at Christmas two years ago. It was unexpected and was right in front of me," she said.

"It really made me realise we are not guaranteed our next breath, our next heartbeat — only God knows."

Charlene will be amongst 15 celebs taking the ice on this year when the show kicks off on Sunday night.
