Corrie’s Nikki lined up for Dancing on Ice
Actress Nikki Sanderson has announced that she is to swap the cobbles of Coronation Street for the ice of a new reality dancing show series.
The former Corrie favourite, who played hairdresser Candice Stow, will be among the host of stars competing in the forthcoming series of Dancing on Ice, to be screened on ITV from the start of next year.
A source close to the actress told Soaplife magazine: “Nikki loves the show and jumped at the chance to be in it.”
Though the 23-year old is looking forward to the chance to show off a whole new wardrobe, she has also expressed reservations about revealing her legs to the nation.
“I’d make my legs longer if I could and I’ve got a big scar on one of them so I’d get rid of that,” she told the publication.
Over on the BBC, snooker legend Willie Thorne became the latest celebrity to be voted off hit show Strictly Come Dancing after the judges said that his style of dancing resembled “a polar bear in the Sahara”.
