TalkSPORT’s Sam Matterface has reportedly landed the gig of being Dancing On Ice’s new commentator, after Matt Chapman quit yesterday.
Matt, who is a sports commentator for ITV, quit the dancing competition yesterday because “he couldn’t make his diary work” after initially thinking he could juggle previous work commitments.
TalkRADIO host Sam Matterface has been lined up as Matt’s successor – according to The Sun newspaper.
A telly source told them: “Sam is a talented commentator.
“There’s a certain art when it comes to radio commentary – so he’s more than qualified. He was the natural presenter and he’s got a face not just for radio.
“Anyone who listens to his talkSPORT commentary will know how enthusiastic he is and how he can have the audience in the palm of his hand.
“Dancing On Ice fans will love him.”
Dancing On Ice continues this Sunday night when the second half of the celebrities will take to the ice, and one couple will be eliminated.
