Heidi Range is about to taste fame all over again as she embarks on the latest series of Dancing On Ice.
And the Sugababe is also embracing a new figure to accompany it.
The freshly-single star, 28, showcased a svelte frame today as she emerged from the ITV studios following an appearance on This Morning.

The blonde beauty battled the breeze, smiling through windswept hair that blew across her face and weaved inside her oversized gold hoop earrings.
She opted for an all-black ensemble with a figure-hugging LBD, heart-speckled tights and a pair of skyscraper heels.
But the young star had better start getting used to some slightly more garish numbers as she takes to the rink in her neon costumes.

The promotional picture released of her and partner Sylvain Longchambon sees the pair looking a little Tango-ed in bright orange.
Although Heidi is now obviously relieved she can finally talk about starring on the show, having kept it secret for so long during practice sessions.
Turning to Twitter, she wrote: 'Finally i can tweet about it, so excited to be taking part in this years Dancing on ice!!! x'
Range appeared on the breakfast show today with her co-stars, sharing the infamous sofa with her fellow females.

Notably-absent singer Chesney Hawkes is also set to compete, although his position has been thrown into jeopardy having hurt his ankle.
Heidi looked excited and fresh-faced at the thought of tackling her new project, despite splitting from fiancé Dave Berry last year.
