The former Love Islander bundled up against the chill of the ice rink in a long grey padded coat and sported a light grey beanie.
She teamed it with a black top and black leggings, and obviously included white ice skates.
Amber looked glowing as she displayed her fresh-faced looks during the training session.
The stellar line-up of celebrities that will be featured on the 2024’s ITV series will see the likes of pro boxer Ricky Hatton, actress Claire Sweeney, comedian Lou Sanders, BBC radio presenter Adele Roberts, Olympic ski jumper Eddie Edwards, and more.
The A-list cast began their training earlier in October, as light-welterweight champion Ricky, 45, shared a sweet snap of all of them posing up for a group picture – and everyone looked over the moon to began their adventure on the ice rink.
It comes after reports that Holly Willoughby was in ‘no rush’ to return to work in time for Dancing On Ice’s new series in January.
The TV host, 42, suddenly quit This Morning last week after 14 years when an alleged plot to kidnap and murder her was exposed.
In a statement the beloved star said she was stepping back ‘for my family’ leaving her future TV career and association with ITV in question.

But a source has now revealed to The Sun that the broadcaster has put ‘zero pressure’ on Holly to return to host DOI and are supporting her leave ‘as long as she needs’.
‘Everyone around her – family, friends and her team – all agreed that a really decent break from work would do her the power of good.
‘ITV has assured her that there is zero pressure to be ready for Dancing on Ice even though she remains a much-loved part of the family.
Before going on to say: ‘After all, work begins on the skate show in December with shoots and promo, and nobody wants to place unrealistic expectations on Holly’s shoulders and have her feel she needs to rush back, especially because nobody knows how and when the court case will proceed’.
MailOnline have contacted Holly’s reps for comment.
It comes after Amber made a surprising cameo in one episode of The Kardashians, leaving fans in shock.
In one of October’s episodes of the iconic show, Kim Kardashian was seen taking son Saint, seven, and his friends on epic soccer trip across Europe.
While in London, the 42-year-old reality star took the boys to an Arsenal game before they enjoyed a West End show.

Kim then posed for a group shot with the cast before adding: ‘thanks you guys. It’s just such a great show.’
The former Love Islander discussed the moment on social media, responding to a fan who tweeted that they ‘didn’t expect’ to see her on their screens.
She confessed: ‘I did not have that down on my bingo card for 2023 either.’
The Dancing on Ice star went on to share a clip from the show that she captioned: ‘An interval I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. Mom I made it.’
Amber documented the meeting back in March as she shared a picture with Kim and Saint on Instagram.
