She's got her eye on the glitterball trophy!

Brooke Vincent hasn't even finished filming Dancing On Ice yet, but she's already eyeing up her next big challenge.

The Coronation Street star, who is still only 25, will take part in Sunday night's grand finale of the ITV ice skating show - going up against favourite Jake Quickenden and Max Evans.

In an interview printed in The Sun, she says: "I’d love to do Strictly, it’s a lovely show.

“I hadn’t been dancing and I hadn’t been skate trained.

I'd love to do Strictly, it's a lovely show.

“But with ice-skating, half of your battle is that you’re not going to fall flat on your face.

“With Strictly, that battle is taken away.”

She wouldn't be the first Corrie star to leave the cobbled streets of Weatherfield for the rather more glamorous surroundings of a ballroom.

Tina O'Brien, better known to soap fans as Sarah Platt, took part in 2010.

Perhaps Strictly already have their eye on Brooke... After all, professional dancers Neil and Katya Jones were in the audience of DOI last weekend to watch her and Matej Silecky dance to the Spice Girls.

Brooke joked: "I wish someone had told me, I'd have worked really hard."
