A singer swapped the microphone for her ice-skates at Brent Cross Shopping Centre on Friday.

X-Factor star Melanie Masson was invited to show her moves on the shopping centre’s first ever outdoor ice-rink.

The mum-of-two, who was voted out the show in its second week, was treated to a lesson with Dancing on Ice stars Natalie Pestova and Alexi Kislitsyn.
