CHICO ON ICE: It was Chico time for shoppers in St Ives on Saturday.

Fans queued to meet up with the X Factor and Dancing On Ice star at the Anglia Co-operative foodstore in Constable Road. Chico spent an hour at the store signing autographs and meeting shoppers.

Store deputy manager Jamie Asque said: "He was really popular - everyone loved him. He signed dozens and dozens of autographs."

Chico was in town to promote the Celebrities On Ice show - sponsored by Anglia Co-operative - which is being staged at the Peterborough Arena from January 25-27.

Tickets for the spectacular - which also features Steps singer Lisa Scott-Lee, Dancing On Ice champion and X-Factor runner-up Ray Quinn and former England rugby star and Dancing On Ice winner Kyran Bracken - are available from www.celebsonice.co.uk
