Denise completed her ensemble with black leggings, a black tee and military boots. 

The actress let her natural beauty shine through with a minimal make-up look, and she swept her signature blonde locks over to one side.

Denise was all smiles as she clutched her face mask and coffee in one hand while chatting to her co-star.

Matt, 44, embraced the chilly November weather in tracksuit bottoms, a grey T-shirt and a padded Northface jacket.

He tucked his blonde locks beneath a grey hat and let his camouflage face mask hang around his neck.  

Despite getting into the ice skating spirit, Denise has insisted she won’t be trying any death-defying moves on the show which is set to air on ITV in January. 

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror’s Notebook Magazine, Denise cited her daughter Betsy, eight, as the reason she wouldn’t be taking too many risks on the ice.   

She said: ‘I won’t take any risks on the ice for my daughter’s sake.’

One of the show’s most nail biting moves is the headbanger, where a skater is swung around with their head being raised and lowered, often dangerously close to the ice.

Donna Air previously told how she had been banned from attempting the move when she took part in the 2018 series as bosses told her she was ‘too tall’. 

Denise shares her daughter Betsy with her ex-husband Lee Mead, who she was married to from 2009 to 2013.  

The star will be competing against the likes of Myleene Klass, Billie Faiers, and Rebekah Vardy on the new series.  

It comes after reports that Dancing On Ice was going to be ‘hit in a big way’ during the second lockdown due to some of the rinks being closed to adhere to new coronavirus guidelines.

The pro skaters and celebrities were said to be concerned that they’ll be unable to train as they don’t live near the select few open venues.

The new rules will also see all leisure centres and sporting venues shut until at least Wednesday 2 December.  

A source told The Sun: ‘Lockdown is affecting many industries, but Dancing On Ice looks set to be hit in a big way.

‘The main concern from some of the professionals is that because council rinks are being closed down, they’re going to be left with nowhere to train.  

‘Not all of them are near one of the few available UK rinks so it remains to be seen how they’ll get on-ice training.’

Yet a Dancing On Ice spokesperson hit back at the claims and told MailOnline: ‘We’re in constant contact with our entire cast in training and there have been no concerns raised.

‘All scheduled training is proceeding safely within guidelines and at easily accessible locations.’

They added: ‘ITV takes the safety and welfare of everyone involved with its programmes extremely seriously and follows all government guidelines regarding Covid-19. 

‘The government has confirmed that TV production can carry on throughout lockdown, to that end we will be hiring the local ice rinks on a private and exclusive hire basis.’ 

So far, the cast have been undergoing weekly coronavirus tests in order to train with their professional partners on the ice.
