Former Bethnal Green MP Oona King set to go Dancing On Ice

Former Bethnal Green and Bow MP Oona King is reportedly ready to get her skates on to go Dancing On Ice in the New Year.

After losing her seat in 2005 to Respect MP George Galloway, who went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother, she unsuccessfully challenged Ken Livingstone to be Labour’s London Mayoral candidate in the 2012 election.

Now she is reported to be looking to prove her career isn’t on the slide by joining the likes of former Wales rugby union player Gareth Thomas on hit ITV 1 show Dancing On Ice.

She’ll be following in the footsteps of Tory MP Nadine Dorries, who is currently Down Under on I’m a Celebrity.
