Saira Khan has signed up for "Dancing On Ice" after being "shamed" by her son.

The "Loose Women" star turned down a request to appear on the celebrity skating contest but was forced to change her mind following some harsh words from 10-year-old Zachariah.

Saira - who also has seven-year-old Amara with husband Steve Hyde - said: "They asked me to do it and I refused, "No, no, no, I'm too old, I'm going to fall, I'll injure myself and I haven't got the time# and my little boy said, "Have you heard yourself? What if I said I couldn't do my homework, it's too hard, I'm busy" - he shamed me into doing it, so I am doing it for my kids.

"I'm not doing it for the money, I'm doing it for my kids."

Saira made her announcement on "Loose Women" on Tuesday (02.10.18), and stumbling out on the set on roller skates, she admitted she isn't a natural.

Enlisting Stacey Solomon to help her to her seat, she said: "Come and help me, this is a nightmare, I can't... honestly... As you can see, I'm in it to win it. What am I doing?

" I cannot skate, some people say it and they can but I cannot, I've never been on ice skates."

The former "Apprentice" contestant then sought reassurance from Andrea McLean, who competed on the first series of the show, but didn't get what she was looking for.

Andrea said: "I broke only one rib and I only concussed myself once, it's fine."

And fourth panelist Janet Street-Porter also didn't offer much support.

She quipped: " You won't have very good hair with a crash helmet."

But Stacey offered more support when she said: "The best for me is to watch the ones with no experience work their way up."

Saira's announcement came after Brian McFadden, James Jordan, Gemma Collins and Richard Blackwood confirmed they will be taking part in the next series.
