“Fitness is another reason why I’m doing it! It’s really exciting.”

The star recently revealed that she had been "snubbed" from the S Club 7 reunion tour in the months following the death of her former bandmate and boyfriend Paul Cattermole in April. 

She also shared earlier this year that her family had been homeless for six months in 2022. 

The 42-year-old is the third celebrity to sign up for Dancing on Ice 2024 joining boxing legend Ricky Hatton and Coronation Street actress Claire Sweeney in the series.
