Celebrity Dancing on Ice duo, Vicky Ogden and Sam Attwater will be appearing at Newport Pagnell Carnival on Saturday.

The couple will be there to answer questions about their new Milton Keynes-based venture, the Universal Performing Arts School (UPA).

They will take part in the parade, which starts at noon, and will also entertain people in Riverside Meadow afterwards.

Sam Miller, Newport Pagnell Carnival chair said: “We are really excited to welcome Sam and Vicky to Newport Pagnell Carnival and to introduce them to all of the budding young performers that take part in the Carnival weekend.

“I can’t wait to see their entry in the ’50 Bedtime Stories’ themed parade.”

Based in Walton High in Walnut Tree, UPA will train students in all aspects of performing arts, using their own experience and expertise.

Sam Attwater trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and is well known for his role as Leon Small in EastEnders.

Vicky Ogden is a trained ice skating coach and is known for her role as a professional skater on Dancing on Ice, along with her fire poi skills.

Saturday’s carnival will feature the parade, live music, record-breaking strongman John Evans, stalls, funfair, food and more.

Sunday will see a classic car parade and show with over 35 different cars, a dog show (hosted by Hula Animal Rescue), car boot sale and the annual duck race.
