Dancing On Ice fix row as Kimberly Wyatt trained in speed skating for The Jump – but insists she has no advantage

DANCING On Ice's Kimberly Wyatt was trained in speed skating for The Jump – but has insisted that it won't give her an advantage.

The singer, 39, revealed earlier today that she is one of 12 stars who is taking part in the ITV competition early next year.

The Pussycat Doll favourite Kimberly opened up about how she's feeling about taking part in the show on Heart Breakfast earlier today.

And the star isn't feeling very confident, despite getting some practice on a popular Channel 4 reality show back in 2014.

Kimberly told hosts Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston: "No, I don’t have much skating experience whatsoever…

"I did The Jump years ago and there was a bit of speed skating. But I was pretty rubbish so that’s not really working in my favour, but I’m up for a challenge, I’m excited."

The Jump saw a group of celebrities go head to head and try and master various winter sports.

Kimberly was booted off the reality show in the sixth week after going up against Steve Redgrave in the live jump.

Heart Radio's showbiz reporter Ashley Roberts – who starred in Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 – asked Kimberly if she feels any pressure taking part in the show.

The beauty confessed: "I do feel the pressure…

"If anything, being there supporting you on Strictly has given me a little bit of insight into what I’m about to put myself through, just with a few blades on the bottom of my feet which is great."

Kimberly will be joined by Love Island's Liberty Poole, The Vamps' Connor Ball, BMX rider Kye Whyte, dancer Brendan Cole and broadcaster Ria Hebden on the ice rink next year.

Coronation Street's Sally Dynevor, rugby ace Ben Foden, Paralympian Stefanie Reid, singer Rachel Stevens, Gazza's son Regan and Happy Mondays dancer Bez complete the line-up.

The new-look show is set to feature former Strictly star Arlene Phillips on the judging panel as a replacement for the axed John Barrowman.

The dance legend, 78, is in advanced talks about returning to prime-time TV for the first time since the BBC axed her from Strictly in 2009.

She will join Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean behind the desk.

  • Tune in to Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden weekdays from 06:30 – 10:00.
