Faye teamed her shirt and trousers combo with a longline black cardigan, and accessorised her look with black boots and a grey clutch bag.

The soap siren wore her brunette tresses in soft waves, while she upped the glam with a slick of bold red lipstick. 

The beauty appeared in great spirits as she flashed a warm smile while making her way down the street. 

This week, several Dancing On Ice stars prepared to be put though their paces by a team of professional skaters – including Winter Olympics stars Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean.

Looking ahead to the new series, which launches in January, Faye said: ‘I’m so excited! We had to review the basics, we were filmed too.

‘The producers get to know you and this is the first time I think people are just going to see me, not being a character… Just being me – Faye!’

The official Dancing On Ice Instagram also confirmed the news and added a statement from the actress, which said: ‘I’m a trained dancer, but attempting to put something I already know very well on skates is quite scary!’

During her interview, Faye also admitted that she already has a ‘little’ experience as her father used to play ice hockey.

Getting ready: 'The producers get to know you and this is the first time I think people are just going to see me, not being a character¿ Just being me ¿ Faye!'

She confessed: ‘I have a little, I might be Bambi but my dad used to play ice hockey so we did that often. There were no official lessons but we had fun as a weekend activity.’

She said: ‘Ice skating is an Olympic sport, but I’m up for the challenge. Having Joe by my side training has just been the cherry on the cake.’

Faye also revealed that she will be asking for advice from former Coronation Street co-star Brooke Vincent who appeared on Dancing On Ice in 2018.

She joked: ‘As soon as this interview is over I can contact them but I’ve obviously had to keep this to myself. It’s the biggest secret I’ve kept in my life!

‘I saw Brooke yesterday and I was desperate to tell her but I thought one more day and I’ll be able to. She’ll be my first text message after I’ve finished this interview.’

Here we go! Looking ahead to the new series, which launches in January, Faye said: 'I'm so excited!'
