CORONATION Street actor Andy Whyment is the latest celebrity to tackle the ice rink.

The 30-year-old, who lives in Atherton and plays Kirk Sutherland in the ITV soap, donned the sequins as Dancing On Ice aired on ITV at the weekend.

He admitted he will be like ‘Bambi’ on the ice, but said: “That’s one thing I’ve said, no fake tan for me.

“I had a bet with my dance partner, Vicky Ogden. that I won’t have had a fake tan by the end of it.

“I don’t care if I look like Casper the Ghost. Definitely no false tan.”

Talking about his skills on the ice, he added: “People keep telling me I’m better than I think I am. I’m not amazing, but I can skate.

“Each time I get on the ice, I still think I’m mad for doing it.”
