Keith Chegwin: Recovered from broken ribs

Keith Chegwin: Recovered from broken ribs

  • by ROBERT DEX
 

Keith Chegwin is back in the rink in the new series of Dancing On Ice a year after he crashed out of the show when he fell and broke his ribs.

He is joined in the new series by stars including Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, X Factor winner Shayne Ward and Lauren Goodger from The Only Way Is Essex.

Olympians Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell are also getting their skates on along with soap stars Samia Ghadie, who plays Maria Connor in Coronation Street, and Matt Lapinskas who played Anthony Moon in EastEnders.

Anthea Turner, Joe Pasquale and former MP Oona King will be joined on the ITV show, which makes its return on 6 January, by Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas.

The show, presented by Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley, also sees the return of sharp-tongued judge Jason Gardiner.

Australian Gardiner, who famously described watching swimming champion Sharron Davies dance as looking at “faecal matter that won’t flush”, started as a judge when the show launched in 2006.

He also caused controversy when he was accused of bullying former judge Karen Barber by telling her: “If your opinion still mattered, you’d be on the panel.”

Gardiner’s comments have also included telling Chloe Madeley she had a “baboon bottom” and ex-Neighbours star Craig McLachlan that he looked like he was performing with a “soiled nappy”.
