It has now been confirmed that Lady Leshurr will be a contestant on the upcoming series of ITV’s popular TV show, Dancing On Ice!
The Birmingham artist announced the big news on Twitter this morning (September 30), writing: “Guess who’s skating around the truth and managed to get on Dancing On Ice?
“Who am I kidding, I can’t skate to save my life […] so this will be interesting @dancingonice.”
Leshurr is the tenth celebrity to be confirmed for the 2021 series of the show and will be going up against the likes of Rebekah Vardy, Colin Jackson, Denise Van Outen, Myleene Klass and more.
Speaking to Diversity’s Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely on KISS FM on Wednesday morning, Lady Leshurr admitted she was petrified to dance on ice.
“Oh my gosh, I don’t what I’ve got myself in for, but everyone knows me to be that person to just throw myself in at the deep end and I just wing it a lot of the time,” she said.
“I’m petrified, [but] I’ve always wanted to ice skate so what’s better than doing it in front of millions of people. I’m looking forward to having a new skill, [skating] backwards and just showing off in front of my friends.”
If Leshurr’s abilities on the ice are anything like her skills on the mic, she definitely doesn’t have anything to worry about!
