Retired rugby player Gareth Thomas says that he will "embrace the sparkle" on his outfits for the upcoming Dancing On Ice series.

Former Welsh rugby captain Gareth Thomas believes that he will receive plenty of jibes from his teammates over the sparkly outfits he'll be wearing on Dancing On Ice.

The 38-year-old has signed up for the ITV reality show and arrived at the launch of the new series this week wearing a lime green Lycra T-shirt covered in rhinestones.

"My teammates haven't seen my sparkles yet but I'm waiting for texts tomorrow," Thomas told The Sun. "I'm learning to embrace the sparkles.

"The wardrobe department showed me the available outfits and I thought, 'You know what? That's not really me'. But when you get into it you understand the whole performance is a show and the outifts become part of the skating. You get over it."

Meanwhile, Thomas has revealed that he spent time with Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke, who is expected to play the retired rugby player in his biopic.
