Is Jason Donovan joining Dancing On Ice?

A source told The Sun: “Jason is a great signing for the show as he has plenty of star power.

“He knows how to dance but if he thinks it’ll be any help once he’s on the ice he has another thing coming.

“He’s hoping to rank higher in this show than he did on Strictly, he just needs to find out if he can stay upright once he has his skates on.”

Entertainment Daily has contacted Jason’s rep for comment.
