Kimberly Wyatt has been announced as the latest celeb contestant to join 2022's series of Dancing on Ice on ITV.

The Pussycat Doll took to her Instagram page to share the news with her 175k followers, becoming the 11th celeb to join the line-up.

The 39 year old posted a photo of her posing against the iconic Dancing On Ice glittery back drop and captioned the picture: "The secret is finally out…guess who's joining the ice? @dancingonice @itv"

Her fellow band member Ashley Roberts showed her support by commenting: " Come on ice queen!!"

Kimberly also revealed the exciting news to Ashley on Heart Breakfast as she said: "I have signed up for Dancing on Ice! I’m nervous, that ice is going to hit hard. I’m just excited to see what I can do on there. I’m up for a challenge!"

Kimberly said earlier this year that she couldn't perform in Strictly Come Dancing as she is "too professional".

She told The Sun : "From any chats that I've had, Strictly feel that I’m too professional to be a contestant.

"It's such a shame as I’d love to learn ballroom, my dancing experience holds me back as a contestant."

Ahead of her Dancing On Ice debut we take a closer, we take a closer look at the Pussycat Dolls star.

Who is Kimberly Wyatt?

Kimberly is an American singer, dancer, choreographer, actress and television personality as well as a member of The Pussycat Dolls.

In 2009 she became a judge on the Sky1 dance competition show Got to Dance until 2014. She also won BBC One's Celebrity MasterChef in 2015.

On November 29, 2019, after months of speculation for a possible Pussycat Dolls reunion, they confirmed their reunion on Heart radio where they also announced a tour originally scheduled for 2020.

They performed live on the final of The X Factor : Celebrity where they sang a medley of previous singles and their new song at the time 'React'.

However regulator Ofcom received more than 400 complaints from viewers who criticised the band's perceived provocative nature of their performance.

Back in 2011, Kimberly began a relationship with model Max Rogers and they then got engaged in September 2013.

The couple then married in a private ceremony less than a year later in February 2014.

They now have three children together and Kimberly revealed in October 2019 that she could not have any more children after giving birth to her third child.

Since 2010, Kimberly has established herself in the UK, and lives with her family in Surrey.

Kimberly has previously said she don't think she'll ever go back to the US.

Speaking in 2013, she explained to BANG Showbiz: "I've been here a while now. And out of anywhere in the world I feel the most at home when I'm here.

"I love the people, the culture, I love that you can walk to the stores. I love the little villages, the good food … and my beautiful man of course!"
