EastEnders star Patsy Palmer becomes the first celebrity to be confirmed for Dancing On Ice

Patsy Palmer is the first celebrity to be announced for the next series of Dancing On Ice.

Appearing on This Morning from her home in Los Angeles on Monday, the EastEnders icon, 50, said: ‘I can’t believe I’m the first one.

‘This was the one I really had to think about, I wanted to challenge myself, get out of my comfort zone.

Wow! EastEnders star Patsy Palmer becomes the first celebrity to be confirmed for Dancing On Ice

‘I’ve turned it down before because I was terrified, but when I turned 50 I made a pact to get out of my confront zone. This is for all the 50 year olds. I’m actually quite scared now.’

‘Even my daughter doesn’t know, she’s been travelling.’

Patsy said she will return to the UK for the show but will do much of her training in Malibu.

She said: ‘I am coming back, but I’ll be training in Los Angeles, which is fantastic.’

‘I’m not competitive but this time I’m gonna say let’s try and win it. I’m gonna focus on the training and use meditation, and this will really put it to the test for me.’

Talking about her experience, she said: ‘The experience ice skating I’ve had is that I would go with my friends as kids, as one of the first things we were allowed to do without our parents. We used to skate around fast and crash into the walls.’

‘It would be really nice to skate to songs I love, but a lot are very upbeat and I don’t want to create a challenge for myself.’
