Dancing On Ice may have had it's share of unusual guest judges (Angela Rippon, anyone?) but the latest rumoured addition to the Dancing On Ice tour judging panel appears to be even more baffling than usual - Denise Welch has suggested that The Only Way Is Essex star Nanny Pat may be joining the hit show later in the tour.
Speaking to Buzz Magazine, the actress and Loose Women presenter, who finished in 6th place on this years show said:
“I texted her granddaughter Jessica to ask Pat to be a judge on the tour and she said yes. Hopefully she’ll join us at the end of the run. It could be the start of something wonderful! I just hope she knows what she’s doing, bless her.”
The current Dancing on Ice tour judging panel include Robin Cousins, Karen Barber and Christopher Biggins.
Despite her limited role, The Only Way Is Essex's Nanny Pat has become a breakout star of the show, attracting over 13,000 fans on Facebook and a column in Heat magazine.
The Dancing On Ice tour continues nationwide until May 1st.
