Meghan and Prince Harry offered Celebs Go Skating stint as Netflix plan dashed

Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

The likes of Charlie Brooks and Love Island's Jack Fowler have already appeared on the programme which initially launched on social media for series one and two following the Covid-19 pandemic.

As they cross their fingers and hope for series three, show bosses are looking more in the direction of TV.

Former Dancing On Ice professional Alex Murphy telling Daily Star Online that they're hoping for an Amazon or Netflix deal – but a spot on prime time TV with ITV or Channel 4 would also be a goal met.

After a successful two series, host Alex is hoping to aim high for the third season, and one royal pairing she would love to see on the show is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Speaking to Daily Star Online, she said: "We've been so lucky with who we've had, but obviously the dream person is Prince Harry.

"I would love it! We have had a bunch of people reach out though, so we're crossing our fingers for series three."

Alex added: "I would totally ask him everything. I'm American, I feel like he's used to Americans now. I'm just going to try!

"He's done James Corden shows, so maybe he would do Celebs Go Skating, I would love to get both Harry and Meghan on there, that's the dream – aim high, right?"

The viewers would also love to see Harry and Meghan on there, particularly given the concept of the show focusing on spilling gossip.

Alex said: "We bring celebs on the ice and ask them questions about their lives, we ask hard hitting questions because the minute you put skates on someone they become vulnerable.

"It's shocking how much people are willing to spill because they're thinking about the skating. They don't remember what they should and shouldn't say, that's the coolest concept.

"They're not thinking about the interview, they're thinking about not falling down."

The show saw incredible success online last year with soap stars and reality stars making their debut while Alex hosted.

She explained how she got the call after she left Dancing On Ice, adding: "It was nice to be a part of a show like that. I felt like Holly Willoughby, they treated me like an angel."

Although a third series for the show hasn't been confirmed – nor the platform it will appear on – it seems celebs have already registered their interest, but the real question is, could it be Harry and Meghan?

This comes after royal commentator Neil Sean claimed their big Netflix plans had been "dashed" after being left off the invite list for Barack and Michelle Obama's party.

He told the Express: "What they really hope to do is get big voice-over names.

"Now Michelle Obama was one that Meghan Markle was very keen to sign up but that went through the pan when they didn't get an invite to that spectacular 60th birthday for the former President.

"I'm not saying Michelle's now on the back burner but let's put it this way, the present hasn't been delivered yet and I kid you not.

"Now they're casting their eyes around to see who else they could really connect with and one of the ideas would be their friend for now, loosely speaking, the chat show queen Oprah Winfrey."
