ONE soap star will be slipping on her skates and took to Instagram to reveal who she had been partnered up with.
Speaking about the new challenge, she said: “I’m really looking forward to going to an ice rink with my son and actually being able to skate and not have to use the penguins they give you to help you stay upright!”
Keen to take part in the competition, the former Brookside star took to Instagram on November 10, 2023, to reveal who she’d be strutting alongside to.
The pair struck a pose outside of the Rovers Return Inn to break the news to viewers and shared another snap of them in the cobbles with the caption reading: “The wait is over… Team Claire & Colin is here.”
“Fabulous can’t wait to see you both in the ice”, one follower penned in response as another echoed: “Yay, can’t wait to watch you and Claire, team Colin and Claire!”
But while many followers excitedly responded to the news in the comment section, Claire may be walking on thinner ice than she thought with soap bosses as she gave out an important detail.
Eagle-eyed individuals may have spotted a major detail confirming Jenny Connor (played by Sally-Ann Matthews) will be back in the pub as landlady in no time.
Jenny’s name can be seen behind Claire and Colin, right above the door of the Rovers Return, thus confirming she is due to reprise the role of landlady.
The beloved character was pushed out of the Rovers when Waterford’s decided to take over the pub after firing Henry Newton.

Since then, the future of the Rovers Return, a huge staple in Weatherfield life, has been hanging in the balance.
Soap boss Iain MacLeod teased upcoming changes for the Rovers, vowing the pub would make a return.
But how will Jenny be able to get the Rovers back?
