ITV reality show Dancing on Ice, hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, is set to return at the beginning of January 2022. Usually, the line-up for the show isn’t released until a month or two before the show is set to start, However, Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor who plays Sally Metcalfe, has been reportedly been spotted training for her appearance.
The actress is believed to have already been hard at work training for the show, which starts early next year.
An insider has reported that Sally has dreamed of taking part in the show for a number of years, but her hectic work schedule has made it a challenge.
The insider told The Sun: “ITV have been keen to get Sally on the ice for a number of years, and she has tried out in the past, but they haven’t been able to make it work.
“She’s finally ready to do it now, though and is already taking it very seriously and has been hitting the ice rink most Sundays.
“Sally is one of Corrie’s best-loved stars, her daughter Phoebe is also now a household name, so timing couldn’t be better.”
A spokesperson for ITV responded to Express.co.uk regarding the reports: “We’ll be announcing our lineup in due course and no comment on speculation at this stage.”
Sally won’t be the first Corrie star to take to the ice if she joins, as co-stars Faye Brookes, Samia Longchambon and Lisa George have all done the same in the past.
Over the years, Sally has become a household name on the ITV soap after joining the cast in 1986.
After her 35-years contribution to the UK’s best-loved soap opera, the actress was awarded a well-deserved MBE in the 2021 New Year Honours for services to drama.
Viewers have seen Sally’s character involved in some weighty storylines over the years, with one being the infamous mini-bus crash of 2015.
This saw driver Steve McDonald (played by Simon Gregson) and his passengers run off the road by a gang of boy racers.
Sally and Steve survived the crash and has continued to grace the cobbles with their presence ever since.

Series 13 of Dancing on Ice wrapped in March, following a difficult series as many stars were forced to pull out due to injury or coronavirus.
ITV producers will be pulling out all the stops when it comes to the line-up for next year, which could see some well-known faces.
Celebrities such as Denise Van Outen, Olivia Attwood, Tom Malone, Luke Trotman and Baga Chipz have been rumoured to be taking part.
Last year, media personality Denise quit the series after suffering a shoulder injury and was replaced by gymnast Amy Tinkler.
Speaking to The Sun, her professional ice-skating partner Matt Evers said: “There’s been a lot of comment online for ‘Denise and Matt 2022’, they have never really done that before.
“At this stage, we are just looking at next week, but there is a lot of support for Denise to do the show again next year, I would love that.”
Former Love Islander Olivia has previously said in an interview with RadioTimes.com: “I’d love to do the jungle.
“I’d give Dancing on Ice a go, although it does scare me, I’m a bit of a baby, so I don’t like getting hurt, I feel like the minute I’d fall over once I’d be done.”
Dancing on Ice returns next year in January 2022.
