Michelle Heaton wants to be on Dancing On Ice

Michelle Heaton wants to compete on "Dancing On Ice".

The Liberty X singer is thrilled the celebrity skating show is returning to TV screens and is desperate to take part in the competition and learn a new skill.

She told The Sun newspaper: ""Dancing On Ice" would be my ultimate.

"As a performer you want to do something that you can learn fresh so you build up your CV.

"I've never done ice skating and I've never professionally been taught dancing.

If she does take part, Michelle will be following in the footsteps of her bandmate Jessica Taylor, who came third on the show with professional partner Pavel Aubrecht in 2009.

Jayne Torvill confirmed earlier this week the programme is returning to screens, three years after it was axed.

She said: "I love that it's coming back, it's great news - I'm really looking forward to it.

"The show will definitely be refreshed but the basics will be the same, we will still be teaching celebrities how to skate.

"It was a different sort of platform being in the studio - we like to be creative and come up with new things. There's a new bar to set when the show returns."

And the 57-year-old Olympian - who coached the contestants along with her professional partner Christopher Dean - already has her own wish-list of possible contestants.

She said: "My son is a massive Steven Gerrard fan; he wants him to do "Dancing on Ice" as he's retired now.

"He's also keen on David Beckham taking part but I told him that's unlikely."

At the peak of its popularity, "Dancing on Ice" - which was originally hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby - attracted 13 million viewers.

But its audience dwindled over time and it was scrapped altogether in 2014.

Christine Lampard co-hosted with Phillip from 2012, but it was eventually axed after nine series.
