Former welsh rugby union star Gareth Thomas is the most capped player in welsh rugby history. He is certainly used to taking hard knocks on the rugby field and so should have little fear of falling on the ice. Watch out for thrills and spills as Gareth pushes things to the limit: “I want to be able to do something that’s never been done on the show before.
