Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson has touched down in London and has made it clear she's itching to get her skates on for the latest installment of Dancing On Ice, which kicks off on January 6.
The bubbly blonde heralded her arrival on Twitter and said: "Can't wait to get on the Ice in a few days. (It's been 2 weeks) . Excited!". The 45-year-old also wasted no time rallying her fans to help her progress on the ITV dancing show, adding a link to a sign saying: "Vote Pam."
Mum-of-two Pamela definitely has an edge over the other contestants – she already has some experience under her belt after taking part in the hit US TV show Dancing With The Stars. She will use those skills to go up against a host of other famous faces including Coronation Street actress Samia Ghadie, former X Factor winner Shayne Ward, comedian Joe Pasquale, The Only Way Is Essex's Lauren Goodger and TV presenter Anthea Turner.
Former rugby player Gareth Thomas, EastEnders actor Matt Lapinskas and gymnast Beth Tweddle round out the hopefuls
Pretty Samia – best known for playing Maria in UK prime time favourite Coronation Street – has apparently been feeling the effects of training, tweeting a picture of her hand resting in a sink full of ice. "Two days back into training and look what are back! Can't wait for Sunday," she wrote.
TOWIE star Lauren followed Pamela Anderson's lead by urging fans to root for her online. "You can show your support for me on DOI by adding a sparkly blue LG to your profile pic, love to see all your support," the reality star wrote.
During promotional rounds for the series, Lauren said she was "so excited to take part!" but added she was a little nervous about doing routines in front of a live TV audience.
