Kem Cetinay joins Dancing On Ice as new digital host

Kem Cetinay is set to return to Dancing On Ice as the new digital host.


The Love Island star and contestant on the last series will return for the new season in 2019.

He’ll take over as the show’s roving reporter, replacing Jordan Banjo.

“Jordan isn’t able to return due to scheduling conflicts, and the whole team at Dancing on Ice wishes him well,” a rep for the show told DigitalSpy previously.

“Kem’s delighted. It’s his first major TV presenting gig and he’s hoping it will propel him into the mainstream,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “While reality TV will always be in his roots, he’s keen to move away from it now.”

Kem finished fourth place on last year’s series after skating with pro Alex Murphy.

She will be back on the show this year as well, with ITV recently confirming the line up of professionals for 2019.


Alongside Alex, they include original Dancing on Ice skater and series favourite Matt Evers, last year’s champion Vanessa Bauer plus two husband and wife skaters, Alex Schauman and Lukasz Royzcki and Carlotta Edwards and Alexander Demetriou.

Plus, there’s series veterans Sylvain Longchambon, Brianne Delcourt and Mark Hanretty, and returning fresh from their series debut last year, Brandee Malto and Hamish Gaman.

In more backstage changes, Karen Barber is back as Head Coach, while former pro skater Dan Whiston is Associate Creative Director.

Meanwhile, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been confirmed as returning hosts while Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will head up the judging panel once more alongside Jason Gardiner and Ashley Banjo.


The new series of Dancing On Ice will air in 2019.

The names on the new line up include reality star Gemma Collins, dancer James Jordan, Westlife singer Brian McFadden,Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, X Factor’s Saara Aalto, and Love Island star Wes Nelson.
