Former Coronation Street star Faye Brooks confirmed for Dancing On Ice

Former Coronation Street actress Faye Brookes has become the latest star to join Dancing on Ice.

Speaking to Lorraine, Faye said that she was "excited" for the new challenge and that the show will allow people to see her as herself and not as a character.

Asked about whether she has any ice skating experience, Kate explained that she used to join her family on the ice when her Dad played ice hockey.

She said: "I have a little [experience]. My Dad used to play ice hockey and when we were kids it was something we did often."

"There was no official lessons. It was having fun and a weekend activity with the family," she added.

During the interview, Kate also spoke to Lorraine about the safety measures that have been put in place.

"So they’re obviously taking all the precautions necessary for the show to go ahead which is wonderful news...We’re just going to have to really be safe and be careful. I’m going to be creating a little bubble with my partner who I still don’t know....We will be tested quite regularly to make sure we’re keeping everyone around us safe too," she said.
