Hayley Tamaddon has revealed she would love to record a duet with Vanilla Ice.

The Dancing On Ice 2010 champion has recorded a spoof video performing the rapper's hit Ice Ice Baby on the Dancing On Ice website, and is keen to perform more with her former pop idol.

Hayley, who proved she could sing when she was runner-up in Soapstar Superstar in 2007, said: "You never know, if it gets a few hits on Youtube, we'll see how it goes. I reckon me and Vanilla Ice could do a bit of a rap, yeah!"

The 33-year-old former Emmerdale star confessed: "It was very fun to make and it was a little bit of a childhood thing for me.

"I used to really fancy Vanilla Ice when I was young, so now to be working with him every week is just great. He was up for a laugh and it was good fun."

But Hayley, who is the new face of Benenden Healthcare Society and is starting the new year with a healthy eating and exercise regime to keep in shape for the Dancing On Ice tour, revealed she didn't know how the rapper would react when she turned up in costume at his dressing room door.

She confessed: "I was petrified, absolutely petrified and he loved it!"
