Appearing on Lorraine, Faye said: “Finally the news is out, I’m so excited!”

I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be fun.

She added: “This is the first time I think people are just going to see me not being a character, not hiding behind anything, just Faye.

“I have a little [experience]. My dad used to play ice hockey and when we were kids it was something we did often.

“There was no official lessons, it was just to have fun and a bit of a weekend activity with the family.”
