Bucks Fizz star and TV presenter says she’s ‘nervous’ about performing in the show

Tunbridge Wells star Cheryl Baker will appear in the return of Dancing On Ice.

Bucks Fizz star Baker, 63, confirmed the news this week.

She explained: “I started training this week. It was such huge fun. I’ve never skated apart from when I was about 12. I am feeling nervous,”

Bucks Fizz won the Eurovision Song Contest with Making Your Mind Up in 1981.

Choreographer Jason Gardiner has confirmed he will be returning to Dancing On Ice as a judge, alongside Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, who were previously coaches on the show.

The name of the final judge to join the show has not yet been confirmed.

Previous hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will return to front the series, due to air in the New Year.

The last series of Dancing On Ice was won by singer and actor Ray Quinn.

Baker recently returned to the limelight with The Fizz.

The band is made up of original Bucks Fizz members Jay Aston, Baker and Mike Nolan as well as newest recruit Bobby McVay.

The group had to change their name because of a legal row with former Bucks Fizz member Bobby G.
