This would be iconic.

Rumour has it that Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson is “in talks” with ITV to appear on the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice.

It has been reported by The Sun that the former band member has been approached by ITV bosses ahead of the show returning next year.

A source told the publication: “Dancing On Ice would love to sign Jesy to appear on the next series.

“She has chosen to take some time out from music and has the rest of the year off, meaning she could come back with a bang in January when the next series kicks off.

“ITV have approached Jesy to see if she would be interested. They have made it clear she is firmly at the top of their wish list and they’d do anything to make it happen.”

They added that she would have a “great presence” on the ice and bosses are hoping that due to the break in her schedule at the moment, she will have time to think about going onto the show.

When it comes to the future of the show following Phillip Schofield’s departure from ITV, it has been said that Holly Willoughby will remain at the helm.

An ITV insider told MailOnline: “Holly wants to stay on at Dancing On Ice, she’s made that clear to all concerned and everyone at the network is absolutely delighted.”

“They haven’t discussed contracts yet, as that will take place after the summer as always, but she’s indicated it will be business as usual.”

“There have been all kinds of rumours that she is to leave but she loves the programme and has a long history with it.”

Dancing On Ice bosses are said to be eyeing up Jane McDonald to replace Phillip Schofield when the show returns to our screens.

Reports have claimed that Jane has impressed producers at the network enough to replace Phillip on the celebrity dancing series after she stepped in to replace him at the British Soap Awards earlier this month.
