Gareth Gates is gearing himself for the new series of Dancing On Ice - and it seems he's already had a light spray tan!

Celebrities love revealing their bronzed bods on shows like DOI and Strictly Come Dancing, but it seems Gareth has already got in there early with his.

The former Pop Idol runner-up will be joining a host of past contestants for the last ever series of the ice skating show, and yesterday it was confirmed that he has been partnered with pro skater Brianne Delcourt.

Gareth has been busy brushing up on his skills ahead of the first show next month, but he took time away from the rink yesterday and headed into London for an appearance on This Morning.

The dad-of-one was pictured outside the ITV studios and was all smiles as he showed off his slight suntan and newly-quiffed hair 'do. Long gone are his famous spikes!
