Is Brooke Vincent on Dancing On Ice?

Brooke Vincent was the first Dancing on Ice contestant to be confirmed!

The Corrie star announced the news in an interview on This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, who are also presenting Dancing On Ice.

The Corri star revealed that she's taking part because she "loves a challenge and ice-skating is an amazing skill".

Brooke said: "I think I can dance [but] I'm a bit like a bull in the china shop. If I get injured at least I'll look sparkly on the way to the hospital."

She admitted that she found it difficult to keep her new role a secret, explaining: "It's killed me. It's actually killed me to keep it a secret."

The 25-year-old star revealed she's been preparing for her new role by going to the gym: "I've been trying to lose a few pounds to get in them leotards."


Brooke has admitted that her co-stars (Samia Ghadie who plays Maria Connor and Andrew Whyment who plays Kirk Sutherland) have already given her some advice as they've both previously appeared Dancing on Ice.

She wrote: "Thank you for being patient with me. I promise I'll try and listen fully before I go off and try and do what you're asking of me wrongly, because I didn't listen.

"Sorry for being a snapper at times, sorry for making you go over the same thing 20 times because I need it to be perfect. I will try and bend my knees more.

"Thank you for laughing at my jokes. Thank you for getting up at 5am most mornings with me to train, thank you for moving 3375 miles away from your family & friends to be my coach... But most of all thank you for giving me 110% every day for the past 2 months.
