On Friday morning's episode of Good Morning Britain, I'm A Celebrity finalist Iain Lee put himself forward to become the Dancing On Ice commentator after Matt Chapman quit the role after just one week.

"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".

TalkRADIO host Sam Matterface has been lined up as Matt's successor - according to The Sun newspaper.

He has been at the radio station since 2010.

The racing pundit - who filled the shoes of the late broadcaster Tony Gubba as the voice of the show - has now walked after a schedule clash, which means bosses have been left frantically searching for a replacement.

The shock news comes after Matt was met with an icy reception following his debut on Sunday, as fans blasted him on social media as "cringe" and "OTT".

"After Sunday's show Matt told producers they would have to look elsewhere for a commentator for the rest of the series".

He confirmed: "I've chose to hang up my skates, leave the rink and return to the turf".

Matt had spent months learning the moves and the 12 contestants - comprised of Brooke Vincent, Kem Cetinay and Donna Air - in time for the first show last weekend.

Since 2011 he has been a regular part of ITV Sport's commentary team, covering events such as the Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 World Cup.
