Kem Cetinay set for Dancing On Ice role

Kem Cetinay will return to "Dancing On Ice" as its new digital reporter.

The "Love Island" winner finished fourth on ITV's figure skating show earlier this year, and it appears he set to replace Jordan Banjo by taking on a backstage role.

A source told The Sun newspaper's TV Bizarre column: "Kem's delighted. It's his first major TV presenting gig and he's hoping it will propel him into the mainstream.

"While reality TV will always be in his roots, he's keen to move away from it now... Kem can still remember some of his ice-skating skills from last year so he may even get his skates back on."

It appears Kem - who has been practicing his skills on his YouTube channel - may have changed his mind after doubting presenting was the career for him following his first stint on "Good Morning Britain" alongside then-girlfriend Amber Davies last year.

There was backlash from viewers who felt the reality star was out of his depth, and he admitted at the time that while he was grateful for the opportunity he wasn't ready for it.

He said: "That was hard. I'm glad because, no one's got that type of opportunity from that type of show, so to be given it was a privilege. But I just think, I'm not a presenter and it was quite hard for me."

Kem tried to shrug off his critics, and explained he did find certain aspects of the job to be difficult to get to grips with.

He added: "You're always going to get a lot of critics, which is fine.

"I think people found me funny, but presenting is a lot more scripted and you've got to read facts and I'm not the best reader in the world."
