Brunt, who has played village vet Paddy Kirk for almost 14 years, told ITN that he had to decline the opportunity as he was too busy.
Several of the ITV soap's former stars have appeared in the skating contest, including Emily Symons, Linda Lusardi, Roxanne Pallett and the winner of the this year's series Hayley Tamaddon.
"Somebody asked me if I wanted to do Dancing On Ice a while ago and I politely turned it down," he admitted. "I don't think I was available anyway because I was doing Emmerdale but I would die!
"Okay, I might not die but I'm pretty sure I'd break my arms and bang my head hard!" he added.
Brunt also confessed that despite liking the show, he had also rejected appearing on Channel 4's Come Dine With Me because of Dave Lamb's narration.
"Somebody also asked if I would like to do Come Dine With Me," he said. "I don't think so! The narration just takes the p*** out of everybody all the way through. Why would you put yourself through that?"
"Nobody comes out of that well," he added.
