DANCING on Ice war hero Johnson Beharry's life is to be turned into a movie.

The Victoria Cross winner is in talks with film producers.

Caribbean-born Johnson, 31, said they were looking for an actor to play him - with Asian Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel a leading candidate. Johnson told TV Biz: "There is serious talk about a movie. I've had several approaches.

"There is talk the kid from Slumdog Millionaire could play me. I am going to stand back and let them decide what will work.

"I would be excited if it tells my story. It is about raising awareness for injured people - and it is mainly young people who get injured. I visit a lot of them to try to inspire them and say, 'Look what I have achieved'." The serviceman, of 1st Battalion, the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, suffered severe injuries in two attacks in Iraq in 2004. He remembers the first in May that saw him rescue colleagues after the armoured vehicle he was driving was hit by rocket-propelled grenades.

But Johnson has little recollection of the second incident in June, in which his vehicle came under attack and he suffered further injuries. Once again he showed incredible strength and drove his comrades to safety.

Johnson also wants to visit troops in Afghanistan to make a documentary.

He has distanced himself from the row over his skating between judge Jason Gardiner and head coach Karen Barber on last Sunday's show, which sparked 3,500 complaints.

The man in undoubtedly very brave and saved a lot of lives and deserves respect BUT the fact that he has won a VC etc should not make him a showbiz celeb. 

Whilst he has really enjoyed taking part in the show it makes me uncomfortable that he is there his ability on the ice is poor compared to the other skaters but remarkable if you bear in mind his injuries but we should not really have to take that into account should we so for all the right reasons I really wish he had not gone on the show
