The 56-year-old This Morning host said Rylan, 29, would be a “brilliant” addition to the series and admitted to “pestering” the Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side host.
“We all began pitching our ideas a couple of months ago for Dancing On Ice. I have hounded Rylan to take part,” Phillip admitted.
“He’s a really good skater and he’s such a great guy.”
The father-of-two, who has worked with Rylan on ITV, also joked about the star’s statuesque frame getting in the way of his skating.
“He’d be about 20 foot tall but he’d be brilliant and so funny, but he won’t do it, he says, ‘It’s too hard, I’ll hurt myself’. I keep pestering him,” Phillip told What’s On TV.
Phillip, who presents Dancing On Ice with Holly Willoughby, confirmed the return of the programme earlier this year.
He said: “We can exclusively reveal that our other show, Dancing On Ice, has been re-booked, recommissioned for another series.”
Dancing on Ice took a four year hiatus following season nine in 2014, however, it was a real hit with viewers when it returned at the beginning of this year.
Siobhan Greene, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning, said: “The show’s welcome back has exceeded our expectations and it’s been fantastic to see the audience at home loving it.
“The recommission is a no brainer and it’s brilliant for everyone involved to know it’ll be back next year.”
Love Island winner Dani Dyer is reportedly being lined up to appear on the ITV reality show when it returns in January.
According to the Daily Star, the daughter of EastEnders actor Danny could earn a whopping £100,000 if she agrees to star in the next series.
A source told the Daily Star: “They are breaking the bank to get her on board and they are hoping a six-figure deal will be enough to tempt her.”
Dani, 22, has landed a number of lucrative deals since winning Love Island this summer with her boyfriend Jack Fincham, 27.
However, with a lot of new work coming her way, the TV insider claimed Dani may not be able to commit to appearing in the eleventh series.
The insider added: “Dani is seriously considering the offer. She knows it would be a big platform for her and also a great experience.
“It’s just a case of working out if she has the time to do it.”
They concluded: “Doing Dancing On Ice is a big commitment because there are months of training before the first show even airs.”
Dancing on Ice will return to ITV in January 2019.
