Jennifer Metcalfe is off to a good start as she practices for Dancing On Ice

There's still another six weeks to go before the new series of Dancing On Ice begins.

But it looks like Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe could be the one to watch given her skating skills already.

The 27-year-old was spotted practising at her local ice rink yesterday and it looks like she's already acquired a few ice dancing skills.


Balancing act: Jennifer Metcalfe concentrates as she glides across the ice during a practice session at Altricham Ice Rink yesterday

Attending a practice session at Altrincham ice rink in Greater Manchester, Metcalfe was put through her paces by professional skating teacher Sam Ozard.

In contrast to fellow Dancing On Ice competitor Kerry Katona, who has been photographed falling over on the ice, Metcalfe kept her balance as she glided gracefully across the ice.

She even managed to skate on one leg and skate backwards.

Metcalfe was previously touted as a possible contestant for the current series of Strictly Come Dancing, but her Hollyoaks filming schedule prevented her from taking part.

Her feisty character Mercedes Fisher is currently mourning the loss of her second husband Malachy (Glen Wallace) after he died two weeks ago following the fire at the Il Gnosh cafe.


While ITV is yet to confirm the new line-up, others stars rumoured to be taking part is Angela Rippon and Jeff Brazier.

When the show returns in January, fans can expect to see a new judging line-up.

Could she win? Given her skating skills already, it looks like Jennifer could be one to watch in the new year

Last year, many fans complained Emma Bunton was unsuitable when she was announced as a fifth judge - despite her lack of skating knowledge.

Former Olympian skater Nicky Slater, 52, who has been on the show since it started four years ago, will not be returning this year.

He wrote on his official website earlier this month: 'ITV have told me that they are refreshing the judging panel for the 2011 season of Dancing On Ice and that I will not be on the panel.

'I have been a judge for the last five years on the show. It was a shock to get the news as I was under the impression that I was wanted for the show. However, things changed abruptly.'
