Former Hear’Say singer Myleene will be up against the likes of Jason Donavan, Rebekah Vardy, Coronation Street’s Faye Brooks, Capital presenter Sonny Jay and Mummy Diaries star Billie Shepherd on the ITV skating show.
Holly confessed she thinks Myleene has every chance to win the show with her “musicality” after she joined Jane, Chris and her co-host Phillip Schofield in a webinar to speak about their hopes for this year’s competition.

The This Morning host’s comments came after Phillip asked Torvill and Dean: “Looking at it from where we are now, Jane and Chris have you picked a winner?”
Chris replied: “We can’t say that now! No way. We have a little bet though.
“We will write it down on pieces of paper, we’ll hand it over to each other and then we will open it up at the end of the series to see who wins.”
Not holding back, Holly excitedly announced: “I think I’m going to go for Myleene!
“I think she’s got musicality because she’s a musician. She’s a performer anyway and I just think she’s going to fall in love with it.”
Phil then added: “I’m liking the sound of that,” before Holly clarified: “That’s based on nothing!”
When Myleene, who’s engaged to Simon Motson, 45, was the first celebrity to be announced as part of the star-studded line up, she told OK! Magazine: “I have two daughters who are obsessed with ice skating.
“We live really close to an ice rink, so they both skate, but my role is to tie the shoe laces and hold the coats.”
The radio host went on to reveal what was her real reason for joining the ice dancing competition.
“I’m a mum of three, a stepmum of two, when else would a mum like me get the chance to learn a new skill and be able to walk away from it with a bum like J.Lo’s? That’s the real reason I’m here!” she shared.
While Holly is betting on her to take the trophy this year, Myleene confessed she is scared of the ice: “I’m terrified of my piano fingers getting rolled over. I feel protective over my fingers.
“Having said that, I love the fact that I’m going to walk away with a new skill, new butt and fabulous wardrobe!”
