The Vamps' Connor Ball completes Dancing on Ice line-up

·1-min read

The Vamps star Connor Ball has been announced as the 12th and final celebrity for Dancing on Ice 2022.

The 25-year-old bassist, who has been in the British band since 2012, revealed he would be putting his ice-skating skills to the test during an appearance on the Capital FM radio show on Tuesday morning, and admitted that he was looking forward to the competition but feeling anxious as he's rather accident-prone.

"I'm excited obviously but I'm really nervous. I'm quite clumsy, accident-prone. Ice is hard! It was pretty hard to keep the secret. The rest of the band know. They're super excited for me," he told Capital Breakfast presenters Roman Kemp, Sian Welby, and current Dancing On Ice champion Sonny Jay.

Connor's bandmate James McVey wished the musician luck with the tricky competition, which is often marred by injuries and accidents.

"In true @TheVampsCon fashion, he has opted to compete in effectively the most technically-challenging tv show on the box. Good luck on @dancingonice mate," he tweeted.

James was the first of the four-piece band to try his hand at reality TV back in 2018 when he appeared on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and finished in fifth place.

Connor will compete against Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt, Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor, Happy Mondays star Bez, former S Club 7 star Rachel Stevens, former Strictly professional Brendan Cole and Love Island's Liberty Poole, among others.

Dancing on Ice is expected to launch in January 2022.
