garthomasWelsh gay rugby star Gareth Thomas will be slipping on his sequins for Britain’s reality show Dancing on Ice.

Some of the contestants joining the rugby player will be Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, actress Samia Ghadie and X Factor winner Shane Ward.

Thomas has recently spoken out about a report which states gay students find it difficult to get into sport at university.

The 38-year-old said: ‘Attitudes have changed and the time is right for sport to start accepting openly gay people in the same way other areas of society have in recent years.’

The rugby star describes himself as a ‘pussy cat’ and claims to be looking forward to learning the challenging new skill of ice dancing.

‘I have a dream for this show; I want to be able to do something that’s never been done on the show before,’ he said.

‘I don’t know what that will be but whatever the move is, I want to be the first celebrity to have ever tried/attempted to do it.’

‘This is an individual type of challenge but I’m definitely a team player and I hope that will show to the others. If I’m in the position to help someone else I’d love to be able to. I’d really try and get a good team environment.

‘I miss challenging myself since I left tugby – I want to show the real me and let my personality shine through.’

It’s not the first reality TV show Thomas has starred in, having been a contestant on last year’s series of Celebrity Big Brother.

Dancing on Ice begins on 6 January on ITV1.
