Former athlete and Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Colin Jackson reportedly signs up for the next series of Dancing On Ice.

Former athlete Colin Jackson has reportedly signed a deal to take part in the next series of Dancing On Ice.

The 53-year-old - specialist in the 110m hurdles during his career - impressed as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing 15 years ago, ultimately finishing as runner-up to ex-cricketer Darren Gough.

ITV is thought to have auditioned at least 40 celebrities for the new run of Dancing On Ice and according to The Sun, Jackson is one of the first to sign on the dotted line.

"Colin is a real coup for Dancing On Ice as they already know he has moves," a source told the newspaper.

"But being on skates means he's unlikely to have any advantage over other contestants as it's a tricky surface to master.

"After Colin missed out on the glitterball trophy he's keen to get his hands on the Ice version of it.

"Knowing just how competitive he is, he's definitely one to watch out for."

The new series begins on ITV in January.
