Runner Perri Shakes-Drayton has become the latest star to join the line-up for next year’s comeback series of Dancing On Ice.

The British athlete said she was thrilled to be given a new challenge and has already tipped herself as better than fellow contestant, Love Island’s Kem Cetinay.

The 28-year-old said in a statement: “It is an opportunity and I was told in the past I’d never be able to run again and that was not nice to be told.

“Now the fact my body feels good, I’ve been given a challenge, an opportunity, I’m going to go give it my best shot.

“I came across Kem from Love Island and we saw each other at the ice rink. He saw my skills, I saw his skills … I’m better than him. I’m most excited about the costumes.”
