Well, it is big news considering Pammy's been tipped to appear in every celebrity reality TV show going for the last five years or so. And especially considering the rest of 2013's Dancing On Ice line up…
We have Coronation Street actress Samia Ghadie and her gusset, 'singer' Shayne Ward (he'd sing more had Cowell not dropped him after he won The X Factor back in 2005), Baroness King of Bow Oona King (no idea), rugby star Gareth Thomas, TV's Keith Chegwin (he used to be on TV), actor Matt Lapinskas (who used to be on EastEnders), 'presenter' Anthea Turner (i.e. she used to present), 'comedian' Joe Pasquale (he won I'm a Celebrity yeeeeears ago), Lauren Goodger who used to be on The Only Way Is Essex, and Olympic gold winner Luke Campbell. If you think the latter has an unfair advantage being an Olympic boxer, spare a thought for Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle, who is also part of the lineup. As if Goodger has a chance against her.
Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will be ring-side to preside over all the action and the judging panel which this year includes the return of Jason Gardiner avec new hair, will be on hand to deliver their verdicts.
Dancing on Ice kicks off on ITV on Sunday January 6th, bringing a welcome bit of sparkle - and the chance of a celebrity mashing their face into a slab of ice - into our lives.
