Tell me more, tell me more...

Grease legend Didi Conn is the latest celebrity skater confirmed for a brand new series of Dancing on Ice, which returns to ITV in early 2019. 

67-year-old Didi is most famous for her role as Frenchie in Grease, a role she reprised for its cult sequel.

Grease 40 years on: Where are they now?

She joins Wes Nelson, Gemma Collins, Richard Blackwood, James Jordan, Brian McFadden, Saira Khan, Ryan Sidebottom, Melody Thornton, Mark Little, Jane Danson and Saara Aalto in the line-up. 

Didi will be hoping to impress skating legends Torvill and Dean, who lead the judging panel once again. 

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are also back as hosts of the show. 

On joining the show, 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!"
