Former Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole has joined the lineup for the new series of Dancing On Ice.
The 45-year-old dancer appeared on the first 15 series of Strictly but was axed by the BBC after the 2017 edition.
"I'm so, so excited. It's been a while coming now," Cole told today's Loose Women. "I've known I'd be doing the show for quite some time and I want to get started, I'm so excited to be on the show."
He added: "To be back on a big stage - and this is a very big, very cold stage - I cannot tell you how excited I am.
"It means a lot to us in the entertainment industry to have these opportunities and I'm going to take it with both skates!"
