Dan Whiston has revealed that he would love to skate with Katie Price!
The professional ice dancer has starred on the ITV show ever since it’s inception and was as shocked as us when he found out the programme was being cancelled last year.
However if Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean could be convinced to return, Daniel would like to be paired with mum of three Katie and attempt to the headbanger with the busty star.
He told Reveal magazine:
“Katie Price! I’d quite like her. I think she’d want to do really well and she’d be interesting telly. She doesn’t hold back, does she? She goes for it, which I admire.”
“Maybe I’ll be able to headbanger with Katie Price yet!”
Whiston’s hopes may be dashed though as the current all star series is to be the last.
ITV have invited back 14 fan favourites for the new run – though four have already been voted off – and Daniel is back on the ice with his pal and former show winner Hayley Tamaddon.
The handsome star thinks bosses should reconsider their decision to bring Dancing On Ice to an end and said:
“The show has more life in it…..But I guess it’s good that it’s being taken away before it’s ready to. We’re leaving it on such a high.”
Whiston has skated with stars such as Beth Tweddle, Kerry Katona, Jennifer Ellison, Gaynor Faye and Emily Symons over the years but while he became close to all his partners, he insists they never cross the line from friends to something more.
That puts Dan in the minority as Dancing On Ice is a hotbed of romance it would seem.
The show has spawned couples such as David Seaman and Frankie Poultney, actor Matt Lapinskas and Brianne Delcourt, Sylvain Longchambon and Jennifer Metcalfe and then new girlfriend Samia Ghadie. Sam Attwater and Vicky Ogden got engaged last year.
The star understands how people’s feelings develop so quickly on the show and said:
“I do understand it. It’s to do with the closeness you get. You develop a trust with that person, a special friendship and a real sense of loyalty. And often it’ll develop into something else. Will it happen again? Yes, I think it will.”
Jason Gardiner and Karen Barber perhaps?
Daniel and Hayley will return to the ice this weekend as the remaining ten celebrities go head to head for the first time.
After two week of double eliminations, only one star will leave the competition this Sunday and Tamaddon is hoping that her leg heals on time for the show.
The Coronation Street actress suffered an injury last week but she’s heading back into rehearsals today and tweeted yesterday saying:
“Right.I need to sleep..Gonna put the skates on tomorrow morning and see how the leg copes! Lots of catching up to do! #toughcompetition #DOI”
