Dancing On Ice returns to ITV1 this weekend – meet the new celebrity line up!
This Sunday night sees the celebrity ice skating competition back for a brand new series.
11 famous faces will hit the rink live alongside their pro skaters in an attempt to win over the judging line up.
The celebrity competitors taking part in the new series are actress and DJ Patsy Palmer, football legend John Fashanu, Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, olympic gymnast Nile Wilson, Coronation Street’s Mollie Gallagher, Drag Queen and TV personality The Vivienne, TV personality Joey Essex, comedian Darren Harriott, actress and West End star Carley Stenson, singer Michelle Heaton and The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran.
Guiding the celebrity novices from their shaky first steps to spectacular routines are their professional partners. A new addition to the 2023 line-up is world-class ice dancer Olivia Smart.
Returning to the new series are three Dancing on Ice favourites – Sylvain Longchambon, who last skated in the 2019 series and Vicky Ogden and Klabera Komini who both last skated in the 2021 series.
