It follows reports that Love Island winner Amber has landed herself a place on DOI.

And according to The Sun, the show's casting team is "delighted" with the decision.

ITV love Tommy and know he would provide great comedy as well as pull in female viewers.

A source revealed: "Love Island contestants always do really well on the series as they're still fresh in everyone's minds.

"Amber is a stunning girl and they know she'll look fabulous in all the sequinned costumes. She has a gutsy personality, too, so will make excellent viewing."

If either Amber or Tommy were to make an appearance on Dancing On Ice, they would be following in the footsteps of former Love Islanders Kem Cetinay and Wes Nelson.

Wes, meanwhile, was on DOI earlier this year following his stint on Love Island in 2018. He finished second with pro Vanessa Bauer, who was reportedly the focus of a prolonged spat between Wes and his girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson that saw them split up.
