Love Island star Liberty signed up to appear on DOI’s new series in January – but she can ice skate already.

After being announced as one of the new contenders, Liberty admitted that she already enjoyed skating as a “hobby” after growing up with her expert mum Jo.

But the 21-year-old blonde is adamant that she is incapable of “doing tricks”.

“I grew up watching Dancing On Ice and my mom was actually a figure skater,” the Love Island 2021 contestant said.

“I sometimes ice skate as a hobby so I can move around the rink, but I can’t do tricks, no spins or whatever, so I’m really looking forward to pushing myself and doing learn as much as possible.

“Not just skating around the ice, but dancing on the ice. Bring it! ”

FAVORITE SUMMER

Liberty is among the first celebrities to be confirmed for Dancing On Ice 2022.

She rose to fame this summer after stepping into this year’s Love Island villa and teaming up with Jake Cornish.

But the lovebirds’ relationship turned sour and they broke up just days before the final. They then made the decision to quit the ITV2 reality show altogether.

Liberty’s mother, Jo, later admitted that she found it “heartbreaking” to watch her daughter suffer emotionally.

Speaking to the Mirror, Jo said: “I think Jake has had a rough time and if Libby says he’s a nice person then I have to stick with that.

“But it was heartbreaking because she was looking for love and so was he.”

Along with Liberty, Ben Foden and Gazza’s son Regan have also been confirmed for Dancing On Ice 2022.

They join former Strictly star Brendan Cole, Corrie’s Sally Dynevor, Happy Mondays Bez dancer, Paralympian Stef Reid and singer Rachel Stevens in the 12-person lineup.

Meanwhile, former Strictly Judge Arlene Phillips is set to replace John Barrowman on the panel after the TV star was fired over historic flashing charges.

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

A TV insider said: “The fact that Arlene is a mature woman with decades of experience in the dance world is seen as a huge asset to Dancing on Ice.”
