The hit ITV dance competition revealed the news earlier this morning (29 September).
“After months of lockdown, it'll be nice to get the glam on.”
Vardy has previously appeared on the 2017 series of ITV’s jungle-based reality contest I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, she disclosed that she has in fact had prior experience of ice skating.
“My dad taught me how to stand up on a pair of skates at least when I was about 7 years old,” she said. “We used to go skating a lot when he used to pick us up after my mum and dad split up. We used to go and stay with him for the weekend.
“He used to take us to the local ice rink, so it's a really fun family thing for us to have done together. I'm really excited, actually.”
Vardy will join fellow contestants Myleene Klass, Joe-Warren Plant, Denise van Outen, Faye Brookes, Jason Donovan, Sonny Jay, Graham Bell, and Colin Jackson on the show’s roster.
Dancing on Ice is expected to return next year.
