Coronation Street star Antony Cotton has signed up for next year’s comeback series of Dancing On Ice.

It was announced on Monday night, at the end of the soap’s double bill on ITV, that the actor was the 11th contestant for the revamped show.

Cotton, 42, said in a video clip posted on social media that he had better “get my skates on” as he has plenty of work to do before stepping out onto the ice.

He also posted a message on his own Twitter page saying: “So there you go. Finally I can talk about bruises, blisters and bloody boots…”

Cotton has already met his professional partner and will now embark on training ahead of the new series.

The actor joins previously confirmed celebrities Brooke Vincent, Cheryl Baker, Kem Cetinay, Candice Brown, Max Evans, Jake Quickenden, Monty Panesar, Alex Beresford, Donna Air and Perri Shakes-Drayton. 

The show returns to ITV in the new year after being off air for a few years.

The celebrities will be skating to impress Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, Jason Gardiner and Diversity star Ashley Banjo.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby return as hosts.
