Actress, singer and presenter Denise Van Outen has been revealed as the third celebrity skater taking part in Dancing on Ice 2021.

The TV personality confirmed she will join the previously announced Myleene Klass and Joe-Warren Plant during Wednesday’s episode of Loose Women.

She said her daughter, Betsy, will be “so excited” as a fan of the show.

This year, 5.1 million people tuned in to see actor Joe Swash crowned winner.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to skate” said Van Outen. “Because I literally cannot stand up on ice…

“And every time I’ve taken Betsy at Christmas time to a rink I’ve been the one on the penguin!”

Van Outen has previously competed on Strictly Come Dancing, finishing as joint runner-up in 2012 with Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh.

Myleene Klass has previously appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Musician and presenter Myleene Klass said she “can’t wait” to compete against 11 other celebrities on the ITV show.

“I have a 13-year-old daughter and a nine-year-old daughter who are obsessed with ice skating,” said Klass, who has previously appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

“They both ice skate and I stand there and I hold the coats. That’s my role – to tie the shoelaces and hold the coats.

“Now it’s my turn to learn and I can’t wait!”

With their professional partners, the contestants will try to impress the expert panel – Torvill and Dean, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo – and the viewers at home.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will once again host the show.
