Former Westlife star Brian McFadden has signed up for the next season of Dancing On Ice.

The Dublin-born singer joins previously announced contestants Gemma Collins, Richard Blackwood and James Jordan on the ITV series when it returns next year.

McFadden revealed his involvement with the show on ITV's Lorraine on Tuesday morning, saying: "Yes the news is true, I am going to be doing Dancing on Ice 2019. 

"I'm very excited.  I've already been practising out in the back garden on my roller blades and my mammy says I'm a one-man Torvill and Dean."

"Watch this space", he added.

Dancing On Ice will air in January 2019, with further contestants yet to be revealed.
