Anderson: I'd do Baywatch routine

Pamela Anderson is getting her skates on for the new series of Dancing on Ice

Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has revealed she is willing to dust off her famous red swimsuit to win votes on Dancing On Ice.

The 45-year-old star, best known for her performance as lifeguard CJ Parker on the nineties TV show, is competing in the new series of the ITV1 ice-skating contest, which returns to screens on Sunday.

Asked if she would recreate scenes from Baywatch on the rink, Pamela quipped: "You never know - if I need to do it, I will do it to win. I will get the red swimsuit on if I get that far. I will. I'll do whatever it takes."

The actress, who has been tipped as an early favourite, added: "I think because I'm Canadian, everyone expects me to be able to skate, and I haven't skated since I was five.

"But I've been trying really hard. I really want to learn and I love the technical side of it all. And I love the performance - I hope people enjoy the performance as well as the skating part."

Pamela is joined in the new series by stars including Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas, former X Factor winner Shayne Ward, Lauren Goodger from The Only Way Is Essex and Olympians Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell.

Corrie star Samia Ghadie and ex-EastEnder Matt Lapinskas are also getting their skates on along with comics Keith Chegwin and Joe Pasquale.

Ex-GMTV host Anthea Turner and Labour peer Oona King complete the line-up.

This year also sees the return to the judging panel of acid-tongued choreographer Jason Gardiner. He will be joined by head judge Robin Cousins, former ice-skater Karen Barber and ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.

"I'm just going to be what you all know me to be - I'm there as a judge," Jason said. "You have no time to pussyfoot around and sugar-coat anything."
