Former Westlife singer Brian McFadden is set to star on next year’s ‘Dancing On Ice’ TV series.
The 38-year-old former Westlife singer who left the Irish group back in 2014 to pursue a solo career is hotly tipped to sign up to the popular ice-skating show, which is hosted by ‘This Morning’ duo Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, and he is said to be excited about getting his skates on.
“Brian is about to sign on the dotted line and is really looking forward to being part of the show.”
The decision to make his TV comeback, after briefly appearing on the reality programme ‘The Jump’ in 2016, comes after his former bandmates, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan, signed a new contract with Universal for a Westlife reunion.
The skating competition will return to TV screens in January 2019 for a new series after former ‘The X Factor’ star Jake Quickenden won this year’s series, after the show was brought back for the first time since being axed in 2014.
Next year’s line-up is rumoured to include ‘The Only Way is Essex’ star Gemma Collins, 37, ‘Big Brother’s Big on the Side’ presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, 29, and 20-year-old former ‘Love Island’ contestant Wes Nelson.
“Wes has boundless energy and he’s already displayed great rhythm on Love Island, so Dancing On Ice execs thought he’d be a great choice for the series.”
‘Dancing on Ice’ fans have speculated TV presenter Gaby Roslin or ‘Emmerdale’ actress Emma Atkins may have signed up for the show after the programme’s official Twitter account share d a picture of a woman with blonde hair, but didn’t reveal her name.
