Sally Dynevor is set to take part in Dancing On Ice and she’s already be in training for the competition, according to reports.

Since the rumours about her participation in the talent show, the Coronation Street actress has reportedly been seen making frequent visits to ice rinks in Manchester.

Sally is best known for her role as Sally Metcalfe on the long-standing TV show, having played her part for 35 years.

For her performance on the acclaimed drama, the soap star was awarded an MBE for her services to drama in the 2021 New Year’s Honours list.

The actress is also the mother of the acclaimed Bridgerton lead, Phoebe Dynevor, who rose to fame when she starred as Daphne Bridgerton in the hit Netflix show.

A source 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 the timing couldn’t be better."

Dancing On Ice is yet to confirm the lineup for 2021 and following the rumours, a representative told MailOnline: "We’ll be announcing our line up in due course and no comment on speculation at this stage."

If Sally does get her skates on, she'll be following in the footsteps of her co-stars Faye Brookes, Samia Longchambon and Lisa George.

During her time in Corrie, Sally’s character has had her fair share of explosive storylines, most notably when she was wrongfully convicted for fraud and was caught in a lethal minibus crash.

The next series of Dancing On Ice will hopefully run smoother than the last, which was heavily impacted by the pandemic and painful accidents.

Five contestants had to withdraw from the competition due to their training injuries, including Denise Van Outen, who dislocated her shoulder, Jason Donovan, who injured his back, and Billie Faiers, who had concussion.

Even the professionals weren’t left unscathed as Yebin Mok impaled her leg on her partner Graham Bell’s skate and Hamish Gaman tore a tendon in his hand.

In the end, the series had to end a week early, even after ITV replaced several couples who had to leave the show.
