Chemmy Alcott is to take time out from her ski rehabilitation to compete in the ITV series Dancing on Ice.

Britain’s top ranked female Alpine skier was announced as one of the contestants for the new series of the show that features celebrities learning to ice dance with their coaches Torvill and Dean.

Alcott has been recovering from a serious accident on the racing circuit in December 2010, which left her with a compound fracture in her right leg.

Since then, she has been working on a fitness programme to get her back on the snow. She insists that she will return to the Alpine circuit and hopefully up to her previous form to compete in the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014.

Dancing on Ice will feature seven women, all blonds hoping to walk away with the title for 2012. Chemmy will be dancing with Sean Rice and feels pretty confident that she will do well in the competition. The group also includes actress Jennifer Ellison and SugaBabe Heidi Range.
