Sally Dynevor has revealed she's seeking Dancing On Ice tips from her Coronation Street co-stars via a special WhatsApp group.
The 58-year-old star is the latest in a string of Corrie alumni to take to the ice rink on the ITV show, following in the skates of the likes of Jane Danson, Antony Cotton, Andy Whyment and Samia Longchambon.
Dynevor's on-screen daughter Brooke Vincent has also competed on the ice, finishing in second place on the 2018 series.
Dynevor told The Sun's Fabulous magazine she has set up a special WhatsApp support group for Corrie stars who have done Dancing On Ice.
"They’ve been brilliant and really encouraging. I need their support and to give me tips on how they coped," she said.

The star added: "It’s really interesting hearing all their stories and what they went through, because I’m going through exactly the same thing.”
Dynevor will partner with veteran Dancing on Ice skater Matt Evers in the new series and has recently been pictured trying out some ambitious lifts in training.
She revealed she and Evers have even talked about the infamous headbanger — in which one skater picks the other up by the ankle and swings their head just inches from the ice — though Dynevor says there's "probably absolutely no chance" she'll try out the move.
"I’m loving being lifted and flying through the sky. It’s brilliant to have Matt, because he’s been doing it for a long time," she said.
Dynevor has previously said she has turned down Dancing On Ice in the past, but said that spending so much time in lockdown in recent years has changer her outlook on life.
"I’ve felt that I just have to get on and do things and live the dreams that I want to live without being fearful any more,” she said.
“I think lockdown has made us all realise that. Life just changed so much, so I have to take every wonderful opportunity that comes my way, because it might never come my way again."
This year's roster of Dancing On Ice celebrities includes Love Island contestant Liberty Poole, Happy Mondays performer Bez and Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt.
The launch episode of Dancing On Ice will air on ITV on 16 January.
