Rachel Stevens and Regan Gascoigne will join the upcoming series Dancing On Ice in January 2022, it has been reported.
The singer, 43, is best known as a member of the Brit Award-winning band S Club 7 before enjoying success as a solo artist topping the charts.
Meanwhile, Paul Gascoigne’s son, 25, will be forging a career for himself on the small screen and he is no doubt ready to make his famous family proud as the youngest contestant in the series.
The news comes when it was announced that Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor and Happy Mondays legend Bez were the first stars confirmed for the show.
Exciting: Rachel Stevens of S Club 7 and Regan, the son of Paul Gascoigne, will join the upcoming series Dancing On Ice in January 2022.
A TV insider told The Sun about Rachel: “She brings a huge fan base from her days in S Club 7 and as an artist in her own right.
“Plus, Rachel looks stunning and will look absolutely sensational on the ice – plus she has experience dancing both in her pop career and beyond.”
The Reach hitmaker has already tried her hand at dancing, working her way to an impressive second place on the 2008 series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Prior to a series of “strict swearing,” she postponed her marriage to Alex Bourne during her stint on the show — but they married a year later and now share daughters Amelie, 10, and Minnie, six.

After seeing his sister Bianca take part in Celebrity Big Brother, Love Island and Dancing With The Stars in Italy, among others, it marks Regans debut on the reality show.
A TV insider told The Sun: ‘He’s also a dancer, and this shows how the ITV show is taking the dance choreography side of the show much more seriously, rather than just learning how to skate.’
Representatives for Regan and Rachel have been approached for comment by MailOnline, with a Dancing On Ice spokesperson declined to comment.

Bez, 57, meanwhile, was confirmed during an appearance on This Morning, when he revealed the news to DOI’s hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

When asked if she’s skated before, Sally replied, “No, never! I went with Hattie [her daughter] when she was little and i had a penguin and thought this was too hard i’m going to get coffee!’
She continued: “This is a huge challenge, Lorraine. It’s real, real. I’m not getting any younger, I just have to take every chance I get so that when I’m old I can say you know what? I’ve tried it.’
Also on Monday, reports suggested that Bez would also appear on the show, with a source telling The Sun: “He’s always up for a challenge and is already training on the ice.” He later confirmed the news on This Morning.
He said, “I’m more like Bambi on ice right now. First lockdown I was just in the garden, drinking cider, eating cake, overindulging (wanted to get active again)
“I’ve got pads and helmets and wrist guards, so I’m ready. I don’t go to an ice rink before training because I don’t want to pick up bad habits.”
Returning to ITV in the new year, twelve celebrities will be skating live weekly with their professional partners in an effort to impress the panel and viewers alike.
