'Dancing On Ice': Didi Conn, AKA Frenchy From 'Grease', Joins The Line-Up

The revelation has given us chills, and it’s safe to say they’re multiplying.

Didi Conn, aka pink-haired, bubblegum-blowing Frenchy from ‘Grease’, is coming to ‘Dancing On Ice’.

The 67-year-old actress is the 11th celebrity skater confirmed for the show’s 2019 run, which will see 12 starlets taking to the ice with pro skaters before a panel of judges, presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, and of course, the nation.

Excited to strap her skates on for the judges, Didi said: “Boy oh boy, I’m going from being a Pink Lady to Queen of the Ice. I’m coming to the UK on Monday and I can’t wait to see you!”

The announcement was made on Friday morning’s edition of ‘Lorraine’, just moments after it was announced former ‘X Factor’ contestant Saara Aalto will also be taking part.

Like us, fans on Twitter are excited to see Didi take to the ice:

On Monday, Gemma Collins and Richard Blackwood were the first skaters to be announced, with James Jordan, Brian McFadden, Saira Khan, Ryan Sidebottom, Melody Thornton, Mark Little and Jane Danson since joining the line-up.

‘Dancing on Ice’ will return to ITV in the new year.
