Gogglebox star Stephen Lustig-Webb is the next celebrity confirmed to be taking part in the new series of Dancing on Ice.
It follows Stephen stepping down from the Channel 4 show “to move on and explore other opportunities”
Revealing the news exclusively on Lorraine today, Stephen said: “The last time I was on the ice I think I was 14 (years old) so almost 40 years ago. I have been back on the ice since just for a quick spin around, I didn’t fall over so that was a good thing!”
He added: I’ve got a new appreciation for skating. I can see how truly difficult it is. From the comfort of my sofa I was probably a little too judgy, I didn’t realise how hard it is!”
Stephen is the seventh confirmed contestant on the new Dancing On Ice cast.
Earlier today, TV Personality Miles Nazaire joined the line up while yesterday saw Olympic Champion and presenter Greg Rutherford MBE become the latest name announced for the show.
He said: “I like a challenge and I needed a reason to go out and do stuff again and here we are. I want to perform something that’s never been done before, that’s my aim. I’ll go 100,000% on this. I’ll try hard, I’m in no way expecting to be good but I will work as hard as I can.”
Dancing on Ice will begin its brand new series in the new year, typically launching in January.
A dozen celebrities are gearing up to undertake the ultimate challenge, gracing the ice week after week in a live skating spectacle aimed at winning over both the panel of judges and the viewers at home.
As the dazzling series returns, the premier ice show vows to deliver even more glitz, glamour, and breathtaking performances, with celebrities fearlessly embracing the rigours of mastering this perilous discipline.
