Dancing On Ice Ben Foden unrecognisable in throwback rugby snap before ITV show

England Rugby legend Ben Foden, who is scheduled to appear in Dancing on Ice in 2022, shared a selection of throwback Rugby pictures on Instagram of when the star had played for the rugby team, Northampton Saints.

The 36-year-old English rugby union player shared a selection of throwback photos on Instagram.

In one photo, Ben can be seen celebrated by hundreds of fans after securing some points for the team, donning their black, green and gold rugby kit.

In another, the star and his former team Northampton Saints are crowned victorious as they appear to be celebrating with the trophy.

Ben captioned the photo: "I had some good times wearing black, green and gold @northamptonsaints. Thanks @redhatphoto.co.uk for the memories."

Ben, who now plays for the USA Rugby Clubhouse, is confirmed as one of the contestants for Dancing On Ice's 2022.

He joins a stellar line-up that includes the likes of, Love Island's Liberty Poole, Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt and Bez From Happy Days for the icy competition that airs next month.

Following the announcement, Ben said: "I used to skate a little when I was a kid."

He added: "I'd go to ice discos when I was 15, 16, and you'd always see these kids that could do pirouettes that had a proper dancing background."

"I like the idea of learning a new sport and a new skill. I'm quite competitive as well so I like the challenge of competing against others doing something that I'm not necessarily good at."

It's not the first time the star is swapping rugby shoes for sparkly ones.

In 2019, Ben joined rugby stars Thom Evans and Levi Davis in ITV's X-Factor: Celebrity.

They captured the nation's mood with their emotional rendition of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, following England's defeat in the Rugby World Cup final in 2019.

Ben married Una Healy of The Saturdays in June 2012 in Ireland, and the couple have two children, Aoife and Tadhg. Healy and Foden separated in 2018.

In Rugby, Ben won 34 caps for England between 2009 and 2013.
