In 2018, he played Rafael Humphreys in Australian soap opera Neighbours.

Shahidi is best known as Leyla Harding in ITV soap Emmerdale.

She said: “I’m an actor hiding behind a character, that’s where I’m most comfortable.

“Being yourself out there on the ice with no character to hide behind is really scary for me. I’d say that’s the scariest element for me.”

The duo were both unveiled on Channel 4 programme Steph’s Packed Lunch.

The upcoming series of Dancing On Ice will see 12 celebrities attempt to master the skill of ice dancing.

Dancing On Ice will return to ITV and ITVX in 2024.
