A source said: "Lisa's really popular with soap fans so Dancing boss think she'll be a great signing.

"All of her cobbles castmates will be backing her on the show."

The actress will be the latest in a long line of Corrie stars to appear on the show.

Last year Jane Danson represented the cobbles, and the year before Antony Cotton and Brooke Vincent both competed with Brooke becoming runner up to winner Wes Nelson.

The full line-up has yet to be revealed but The Sun has revealed how Love Island's Maura Higgins has won this year's spot for a Love Island contestant, beating winner Amber Gill to the coveted appearance.

A source said: "Dancing On Ice producers were always going to sign a Love Island star for next year’s series and they wanted a girl this time after having two guys in the past.

"It was looking hopeful for Amber but Maura pipped her to the post with her sense of humour and personality."

They will be joined by the likes of Michael Barrymore, Ben Hanlin and Ian 'H from Steps' Watkins.
