Dancing On Ice’s Saara Aalto to skate AND sing for musicals week

Dancing On Ice’s Saara Aalto will not just be skating on this weekend’s show.


The X Factor star will be performing to her own version of Let It Go from Frozen for musicals week.

Saara, who was the voice of Anna in the Finnish version of the hit Disney film, will dress as Elsa for the performance.

She teased: “I’ve recorded my own version so I’m going to be skating to my own singing on the ice – live.”

Saara told The Sun newspaper that a rehearsal of the routine saw coach Karen Barber reduced to tears.

“She didn’t know I was about to sing, then when I started she began to suddenly cry. It just blew her away,” the performer revealed.

Other musicals getting the Dancing On Ice treatment this weekend include West Side Story, Jersey Boy, Beauty & The Beast, Oliver, Hairspray, Mary Poppins, The Phantom Of The Opera and Les Miserables.

Meanwhile, this weekend will also see the first judges’ challenge as each celebrity and their pro partner is asked to incorporate a specific move into their routines.

After last week’s first elimination saw Neighbours actor Mark Little leave the competition, a total of 11 all star contestants remain on the line up for 2019.

The competing celebrities on the Dancing On Ice cast include reality star Gemma Collins, Coronation Street actress Jane Danson, Loose Women’s Saira Khan, X Factor singer Saara Aaalto, Grease legend Didi Conn and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton.

Joining them are former Strictly pro James Jordan, singer and presenter Brian McFadden, actor and comedian Richard Blackwood, cricketer Ryan Sidebottom and Love Island’s Wes Nelson.


Another couple will be eliminated this weekend after the judges’ scores and viewer votes determine which two celebrities will face the skate off.

Dancing On Ice 2019’s musicals special airs from 6PM this Sunday night, January 20, hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
