The actress, 33, who left the cobbles in 2019, now joins Denise Van Outen, Myleene Klass and Joe-Warren Plant as competitors on the ice rink.
Appearing on Thursday’s episode of Lorraine to announce the news, Faye said: ‘I’m so excited! We had to review the basic, we were filmed too.

‘The producers get to know you and this is the first time people will get to know you.’
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!’
Faye also admitted that she already has a ‘little’ experience as her father used to play ice hockey.
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.’
Discussing how the show will be filmed with current guidelines amid the coronavirus crisis, Faye explained: ‘They are taking all the precautions, we’re just going to have to be safe and careful.
‘I’m going to be in a bubble with my pro partner who I still don’t know. It’s nerve-wracking but still so excited. We need to make sure we’ll be keeping everyone safe.’
Faye sweetly gushed that she has loved having her personal trainer boyfriend, Joe Davis, by her side during training.
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 Brooke Vincent! It was a world’s biggest secret.’
Faye left Coronation Street in 2019 after four years of playing Kate Connor on the cobbles.
Discussing whether she would return, the soap star admitted: ‘It’s been a year since I’ve left Corrie.
‘I would love to go back and loved my time there, they’ll be very shocked by the news but now we can celebrate and look forward to creating something magical.’
