‘H’ would appear alongside Love Island Maura Higgins, Diversity’s Perri Kiely and others stars currently in talks to join including Michelle Heaton and Michael Barrymore.
A source explained: “Dancing On Ice is set to be a huge showbiz comeback for ‘H’ and producers are thrilled at the prospect of him joining the show.
“He won a legion of fans in his Steps days with his cheesy dance moves and he could do the same recreating them on the ice.
“Bosses think he’d be hilarious.”
He found fame in the 1990s with dance-pop group Steps[/caption]

Steps were a dance-pop sensation in the 1990s and early 2000s, with H joined in the band by Claire Richards, Lee Latchford-Evans, Lisa Scott-Lee and Faye Tozer.
They had two British No1s with Heartbeat/Tragedy and Stomp and supported Britney Spears on tour in 1999.
And H – which is short for ‘hyperactive’ is no stranger to reality shows, having come fourth on Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.
In 2017, Steps ended their five-year break, releasing a fifth album called Tears On The Dancefloor – with a sixth expected this year.
