Ex-Olympic hurdler Colin Jackson CBE was spotted in popular Old Town health cafe The Core today before his training for TV Show Dancing on Ice.
The Core owner Kris Talikowski talking to the Dancing on Ice pair
Colin has been partnered with professional coach Klabera Komini, and the pair have been seen training at the Swindon Link centre ice rink.
Klabera was involved in the Netherlands version of Dancing on Ice and was the winner on that show.
The pair have been given access to Swindon’s Link Centre for training even during lockdown and have been visiting the Old Town cafe for brunch and healthy juices.
The pair spoke to Kris Talikowski, owner of The Core, about their training and about being in Swindon.
Kris said, “I hope that these two go really far in the competition. Not only is Colin one of our greatest British athletes and a super friendly guy but his partner Klabera is a phenomenal skater who has won the show before in another country. They seem to have loved training in Swindon, and I think as a town we should get behind them on the show."
Dancing on Ice returns to ITV in January, with Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby resuming presenting duties.
Joining Colin in the cast this year are actors Denise van Outen, Faye Brookes and Jason Donovan, plus singer and presenter Myleene Klaas.
They’re also joined by reality star Billie Shepherd, actors Joe-Warren Plant and Rufus Hound, television personality Rebekah Vardy, rapper Lady Leshurr and radio presenter Sonny Jay.
Last year's series was won by actor Joe Swash, with Diversity's Perri Kiely and Paralympian Libby Clegg also reaching the final.
