Cork to dance on ice
He was never known for twinkle-toed elegance on the field, but Dominic Cork is following in the footsteps of other former England cricketers Darren Gough, Mark Ramprakash and Phil Tufnell in signing up for a dancing-themed reality TV show. Cork, 39, who still plays for Hampshire, has been confirmed as a participant in the new season of ‘Dancing on Ice’ on ITV1. The only sportsman in a diverse line-up, Cork will be joined by the likes of former EastEnders actor Sam Attwater, Loose Women host Denise Welch and 90s pop-rap sensation Vanilla Ice. The series starts on January 9, presumably so as not to distract from England’s Ashes campaign which is due to end in Sydney on January 7.
