Liberty Poole confirmed for 'Dancing On Ice'—but she’s got a shock advantage

Love Island 2021 star is set to swap the villa for the ice rink next January as she joins the Dancing On Ice 2022 line-up.

Liberty Poole will be back on our screens at the start of next year as she’s one of the latest stars to be confirmed for Dancing On Ice 2022. And the 21-year-old ex-Nandos waitress might just have a surprising advantage on the show—as her mum is a former figure skater.

Liberty Poole’s Dancing on Ice advantage

Liberty said:

I grew up watching Dancing On Ice and my mum actually used to be a figure skater. I ice skate as a hobby sometimes so I can get around the rink but I can't do any tricks, no pirouetting or anything, so I'm really looking forward to pushing myself and learning as much as I possibly can. Not just skating around the ice but actually dancing on ice. Bring it on!

Of course, Love Island viewers also got a taste of Liberty’s dancing skills when she performed a song-and-dance routine to 'You’re The One That I Want' from Grease with then-boyfriend Jake at the Love Island talent show. Will we be seeing a reprise of this routine on ice in January?
