LOU Sanders has been revealed as the latest star to sign up for Dancing on Ice, but she has an ace up her sleeve.
The comedian was announced by Nihal Arthanayake on BBC Radio 5 Live on Tuesday.
But it seems Lou might have an advantage when she steps into the rink.
During the pandemic, Lou started roller skating and showed off her moves on TikTok.
Speaking about her hidden talent, she told The i at the time: “I recently found out that the adrenaline I get at the skate parks is the same as when I perform.”
“It’s just as embarrassing as when you start comedy because there are all these cool kids who are really good at it and you’re crawling around like a toddler.”
When she appeared on Question Team on Dave, she also filmed a skate session during a holiday in Tenerife, which was played for the audience and judges.
After it was announced that Lou would be joining the band, she told the radio host that it was her “dream job.”
She said: “I like physical adventures,” before adding: “That sounds rude.”
The comedian explained: “I’m afraid of hitting my head or just smashing my old head in. I can’t afford to lose any more brain cells.
“I’m also worried that my partner might come for me, he must be very strong and very brave.”
The comedian, who has appeared on shows including Mock The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, said training will begin next week.
She will join a cast including boxer Ricky Hatton, Gogglebox’s Stephen Webb and S Club singer Hannah Spearritt.
Other stars include reality TV personality Miles Nazaire, actress Claire Sweeney, Olympic hero Greg Rutherford and Love Islander Amber Davies.
Announcing her time on Dancing on Ice this afternoon, Lou explained: “Flashing around, spinning – there’s so much to look forward to.”
“I once felt sick while waltzing. My dance partner has so much to look forward to.”
