Joe Pasquale will be going into the boxing ring with his Dancing On Ice co-star Luke Campbell following his exit from the show.

Comic Joe was voted off the TV ice dance contest this weekend after losing a skate-off to TV star Keith Chegwin.

He told The Sun that he had been getting advice from Olympic boxer Luke while they've been training for the skating show.

Joe, who is tipping rugby star Gareth Thomas to win, said: "I'm going to go boxing with Luke - he's going to come down to my gym. I'm looking forward to that."

The comedian said that one of the worst things about skating on the ITV show was having to wear a thong under his outfit.

"I didn't enjoy that at all. It's one strap up your bum," he said.

"You can't wear pants because Wardrobe aren't happy if it ruins the lines of the costumes."
