“I want to perform something that’s never been done before, that’s my aim.

“I’ll go 100,000% on this. I’ll try hard, I’m in no way expecting to be good but I will work as hard as I can.”

They told The Sun: “ITV always want their big soap stars on Dancing On Ice, and Roxy is who they are after from Emmerdale this year.
