After getting the boot from ITV's flagship morning show Christine Bleakley is looking forward to a new role.

The former host of The One Show will be taking over from Holly Willoughby for the next series of Dancing On Ice and see's it as a chance to be hopeful again.

Speaking to Woman's Own magazine she explained what a difference the show will make to her.


The futures bright: Christine Bleakley is looking forward to hosting Dancing On Ice

She said: 'It's a real pleasure and an honour to think of the new year in a positive way.'

Christine, 32, is especially looking forward to working with silver haired TV legend Philip Schofield.

She added: 'Phil is lovely - I've watched This Morning since I was no age and he's a bit of a god in the telly world.'

The new pairing will get the chance to gel together when they present Text Santa starting next week.

Philip, 49, said: 'The show is packed with content, it wont be just Christine and I standing there holding the fort ourselves, there will be so much going on.

The programme, which kicks of on December 11, is set to celebrate the spirit of goodwill and good fortune at Christmas.


The end of the show: Adrian Chiles and Christine said bye to the viewers earlier this week

Christine was humiliated earlier this month when it was announced she would be leaving failing ITV show Daybreak a month early.

And it seems there was no love lost between Christine Bleakley, Adrian Chiles and the morning programme as the duo left the series this morning with virtually no fanfare.

Bleakley added at the end of her final show: 'That is just about it from us, good luck and have a great Christmas. Bye bye.'
