Rebekah Vardy confirms her place on Dancing On Ice as she reveals her kids are terrified of her doing the headbanger

REBEKAH Vardy is the latest celeb to confirm her place on Dancing On Ice.

The wife of Leicester City striker Jamie appeared on today's Good Morning Britain to share the news, after The Sun exclusively revealed she had signed up back in August.

Explaining her motivation for signing up, the 38-year-old giggled in her car on the school run: "I just think I want everyone to laugh at me really."

Her experience on the ice is limited, with Christmas visits to the rink and some childhood sessions all she has to draw upon.

She said: "My dad taught me how to stand up in a pair of skates when I was about seven-years-old.

"I'm really excited actually. The only time I've been ice skating since is when I take the kids to the ice rink at Christmas."

Piers Morgan couldn't resist a bit of cheeky banter, asking her: "You are good at skating on thin ice, aren't you?"

Becky replied: "That's rich coming from you."

The mum-of-five then told how her son Taylor, 10, saw a video of the infamous headbanger move and was terrified his mum would get hurt.

However, Becky reassured him she'll be fine.

Last week The Sun revealed ITV chiefs think their roster is far better than their BBC rival's after DOI signed up Jason Donovan, Colin Jackson and Denise Van Outen.

The show offered big bucks to get Denise on board, signing her up on a cool £40,000 contract.

What's more, The Sun Online revealed Myleene Klass snubbed Strictly to take part in the ice-skating competition and was paid a mounth-watering £50,000.

But there are more big signings to come.

Producers are hopeful of landing Jamie Vardy’s wife Rebekah – who is at the centre of a toxic legal row with Coleen Rooney. 

An ITV insider said: “Dancing on Ice bosses believe they have the best lineup ever for this year’s show. 

“Producers have been openly saying they are much happier with their lineup than what’s been announced over on Strictly. 

“ITV are also still pursuing a couple of other really big names which will make the show even better. 

“With millions more people indoors watching TV, weekend entertainment on the telly has never been important. 

“That’s why ITV have told Dancing on Ice producers to spend whatever it takes to get the best contestants.”

DOI's pursuit of former Strictly stars Jason, Colin and Denise is seen as a bid to attract fans of the BBC show to tune in.

Meanwhile the skating show landed a real coup with Myleene, who has been in showbiz for nearly two decades.

They said: “Dancing On Ice bosses are delighted to work with Myleene. She’s got the perfect blend of beauty and brains which fans are sure to love when the show returns. Myleene feels the time is right to take on a new challenge and she can’t wait to push herself on the ice.

“Her family are massive fans of the shows and her kids can’t wait to see her in action.”

Another source told The Sun it was “a big shock” that Myleene is doing Dancing On Ice as many thought she would be holding out for BBC rival Strictly.

But they added: “ITV pay a lot more than the BBC though and she is expected to have signed a huge deal worth over £50,000.

"People are surprised she’s doing it but the show is intense and she will be working hard for every penny.”

The Sun Online already revealed comedian Rufus has signed up for DOI, Emmerdale's Joe Warren-Plant, and Grime artist Lady Leshurr.
