Dancing On Ice's Kimberly Wyatt shows off skating skills at ice rink launch with rarely seen children

PUSSYCAT Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt is clearly committed to her Dancing On Ice stint – combining a family night out with some time on the ice. 

The mum-of-three headed to the National History Museum’s Ice Rink launch on Thursday night with her husband Max Rogers and their kids. 

It didn’t take long for Kimberly to hit the ice and show off her skating skills, putting her in a good stead for the upcoming competition. 

Even the kids got involved, with her daughter Maple Lyla, four, joining her in the rink. 

With the help of a stabilising penguin and her mum, Maple was soon whizzing round the ice as well. 

Proud mum Kimberly was soon trying to keep up with her speedy daughter, helping her along as she found herself at home on the ice. 

At the end of the evening, Max pushed her two daughters – Maple and eldest daughter Willow, six – home in a buggy with Kimberly holding son, Ford, two, in her arms. 

Kimberly was announced as one of the stars of 2022’s Dancing On Ice at the beginning of October. 

She follows in the footsteps of her bandmate Melody Thornton, who participated in 2019 and was eliminated just a week before the semi-finals. 

The line-up in the upcoming series includes Bez from Happy Mondays, Love Island’s Liberty Poole and Bez from Happy Mondays. 

However, she’s already come under fire having previously trained in speed skating for Channel 4 series The Jump in 2014, with some thinking it gives her an unfair advantage. 

But speaking on Heart radio, Kimberly insists that’s not the case. 

Speaking to hosts Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston, she said: "No, I don’t have much skating experience whatsoever…

"I did The Jump years ago and there was a bit of speed skating. But I was pretty rubbish so that’s not really working in my favour, but I’m up for a challenge, I’m excited."

The series is expected to kick off in January, with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby hosting once again. 

Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will return to the judging panel, with John Barrowman being replaced. 

It’s believed that former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips will fill in the spot.
