Dancing On Ice 2019 celebrities: Contestants on the new line up revealed

Here's a look at the Dancing On Ice 2019 contestants who are on the line up next year.

Dancing On Ice originally ran between 2006 and 2014, hosted by Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

But the show was brought back in 2018 for a revived series and now another season is on the way.

Starting in 2019, Philip and Holly will be back to host while Olympic skaters Torvill and Dean will head up the judging panel once more.

A cast of twelve celebrity contestants have been confirmed for the show.

The first confirmed name on the DOI line up was reality star Gemma Collins. Gemma said "I know how hard it is. I've done my research! I am scared, I am nervous. I really want to give it a go. I love the costumes. I love fun factor!"

Joining her were actor Richard Blackwood, TV personality Saira Khan and Westlife singer Brian McFadden.

Next to be announced was former Strictly Come Dancing pro James Jordan who said: "I can dance but I'm a lot older than I used to be. People are going to probably say I've got an unfair advantage but when I got on the ice I actually shocked myself how bad I was.

"I want to be able to impress Torvill and Dean more than anyone else, but I'm a lot worse than I thought I'd be."

Cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, actor Jane Danson and Australian Neighbours actor Mark Little are also confirmed for the DOI cast next year.

Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, Grease legend Didi Conn and Love Island star Wes Nelson are also on the Dancing On Ice line up.

Completing the contestants is X Factor and Eurovision singer Saara Aalto.

The runner up to The X Factor in 2016 said: "I'm super excited about this, I love new challenges and I'm very ambitious. I can be very competitive, but I mainly want to challenge myself. I'll be saying to myself 'Saara, you need to push yourself more!' I am so ready for this and I can't wait to get on the ice."

Dancing On Ice will be back on TV on ITV in 2019.
