Whyment, who plays Kirk Sutherland in the ITV1 soap, insisted that he wouldn't be touching fake tan or pink Lycra on the reality show.
"That's one thing I've said, no fake tan for me, au naturel," said Whyment.
"I've had bets with people, I had a bet with my dance partner that I won't have had a fake tan by the end of it. I don't care if I look like Casper the Ghost. Definitely no false tan."
Talking about his skills on the ice, he added: "People keep telling me I'm better than I think I am. I'm not amazing, but I can skate."
Dancing on Ice launches on Sunday (January 8) at 6.30pm on ITV1.
