Dancing On Ice 2013 will see a shake up of the judges next year, with Louie Spence axed in favour of Jason Gardiner.

Bosses have reportedly ditched the camp choreographer to bring back Jason Gardiner, who was fired from the panel for this year's series back in January.

Louie tweeted this week: "To all asking, no I won't be judging @Dancingonice this year. Jason is back."

Speaking about the series earlier this year, Louie confessed: "I don't worry about getting axed though, the dance world is about constant rejection."

Head judge Robin Cousins will be back but Katarina Witt will also be replaced after she failed to connect with the audience.

Celebs lined up for the new series have included Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, who recently appeared on Channel 5's [cat c="big brother"]Celebrity Big Brother[/cat].

Also seen in training have been TOWIE's Lauren Goodger, boxer Luke Campbell and gymnast Beth Tweddle.

Other stars on [cat c="dancing on ice"]Dancing On Ice 2013[/cat] are rumoured to include soaps stars Samia Ghadie and Matt Lapinskas and telly host Anthea Turner.

The show returns to ITV1 in the new year, and we'll have all the news and gossip as always!
