CORONATION Street actor Andy Whyment is the latest celebrity to tackle the ice rink.

The 30-year-old, who resides in Atherton and plays Kirk Sutherland in the ITV soap, will be donning the sequins as Dancing On Ice airs on ITV tomorrow from 6.30pm.

He admitted he will be like “Bambi on ice,” but insisted he wouldn’t be touching fake tan or pink Lycra.

He said: “That’s one thing I’ve said, no fake tan for me.

“I had a bet with my dance partner that I won’t have had a fake tan by the end of it. I don’t care if I look like Casper the Ghost. Definitely no false tan.”

Talking about his skills on the ice, he added: “People keep telling me I’m better than I think I am. I’m not amazing, but I can skate. Each time I get on the ice, I still think I’m mad for it.”

Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden, who is dating Charley Webb, half sister of Kym Marsh’s fiance Jamie Lomas, is also taking part.
