AN ICE MOVE BY SHAKES-DRAYTON
PERRI SHAKES-DRAYTON will bring her athleticism and bubbly personality to ITV in the new year when she takes part in Dancing on Ice.
The 28-year-old 400m runner is in the England squad for the Commonwealth Games in April but announced last week she would be dancing against celebrities such as Kem Cetinay from Love Island during the early part of 2018.
She has met her professional partner and will start training ahead of the new series, which will see 12 contestants trying to impress judges Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean.
“It is an opportunity and I was told in the past I’d never be able to run again and that was not nice to be told,” she said. “Now the fact my body feels good, I’ve been given a challenge, an opportunity, I’m going to go give it my best shot.”
