Pussycat Dolls" Melody Thornton has joined the "Dancing on Ice" line-up.

The 34-year-old singer has confirmed she's set to take part in the forthcoming series of the skating show, which will return to screens early next year, and is "so excited" to slip into her sequinned costumes and dazzle viewers with her moves.

Announcing the news on "Good Morning Britain" on Thursday (04.10.18), she said: "Hi guys, it's Melody Thornton from Pussycat Dolls. And I guess the cat's out of the bag. I'm so excited. I'm going to be on the 2019 cast of "Dancing On Ice". I can't wait to see you and I can't wait to do some skating for you! Love you."

Despite her performance background, the brunette beauty will certainly have her work cut out if she wants to lift the famous trophy at the end of the competition as she joins the likes of former "Strictly Come Dancing" professional James Jordan.

TOWIE's Gemma Collins, Westlife's Brian McFadden, Loose Women's Saira Khan, Richard Blackwood and cricketer Ryan Sidebottom have also been confirmed for the new series, hosted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

The last series - the first since it was axed in 2014 by ITV - saw the judging panel made up of skating champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, acid tongue Jason Gardiner and Diversity's Ashley Banjo, but it's not yet been confirmed whether all four will reclaim their seats on the panel this time around.

However, former Olympic skater Karen Barber will reclaim her head coach position on the 11th series of the show after she missed out on the job this year.

This will be the first time Karen and Jason - who famously fell out in 2011 - have come face-to-face since the programme was pulled off air four years ago.

An insider said: "There is no love lost between the two of them, and there's bound to be fireworks. In the past he's reduced her to tears."
