Liberty Poole is best known for competing in the 2021 series of Love Island and making it to Day 54 of the competition.

The former waitress and marketing student from Birmingham entered the villa on Day One of the reality TV show and coupled up with water engineer Jake Cornish.

While the two took their relationship to the next level whilst on the show, becoming girlfriend and boyfriend, they broke up just days before the final and decided to voluntarily leave the show.

Love Island's Liberty Poole announced she was joining the Dancing on Ice 2022 line-up on Tuesday 5th October, saying in a statement: "I grew up watching Dancing On Ice and my mum actually used to be a figure skater.

"I ice skate as a hobby sometimes so I can get around the rink but I can't do any tricks, no pirouetting or anything so I'm really looking forward to pushing myself and learning as much as I possibly can. Not just skating around the ice but actually dancing on ice. Bring it on!"

Poole also took to Instagram to share the news, writing: "I'm going to be learning to dance...on ice! Wish me luck! So excited to join the show that I've loved watching for years."
