Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor has reportedly already started training to take part in the next series of Dancing On Ice.

The actress, best known as Sally Metcalfe in the long-running series, has been spotted taking to the ice rinks around Manchester, shortly after it was rumoured she was in the running for a spot on the competition.

The annual series, which has become known for its dangerous stunts and nasty accidents, is set to return at the beginning of next year, with the cast beginning training around this time in order to prepare themselves.

“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,” a source told The Sun.

“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.”

Mirror Online has contacted Dancing On Ice and ITV for further comment.

The source added they were further spurred on to sign Sally up following the success of her daughter, Phoebe Dynevor, in Netflix smash-hit Bridgerton this year.

Sally has played nosy neighbour Sally on Corrie for the past 35 years, and has even earned an MBE for her services to drama.

If reports Sally is already in training are true, then she should get off on the right skate – considering the series is so well known for their tumbles.

The 2020 series proved to be the worst yet, with extra pressure on the team to keep Covid safe for the first time, as well as training accidents.

Five out of the 14 competing couples were forced to withdraw from the show during its run, with Denise Van Outen dislocating her shoulder, Billie Faiers suffering a concussion after already taking a ‘bye’ week, and Jason Donovan injuring his back.

Rufus Hound and Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren Plant were forced to withdraw with their partners after testing positive for coronavirus and having to isolate.

On top of that, two professionals were badly injured Hamish Gaman tearing a tendon in his hand, while Yebin Mok impaled her leg after falling over onto partner Graham Bell’s skate during training.









They were replaced by other pros so the celebs could continue in the series.

Despite having two back-up stars stepping in to fill the gaps left behind by the early exits, the sheer number of incidents meant that the show was pulled from the line-up for one week, before the series ended a week early.

Radio DJ Sonny Jay eventually took home the Dancing On Ice trophy, beating sportsman Colin Jackon and Corrie star Faye Brookes in the finale.
