Two Dancing On Ice celebrities are already in a romance behind the scenes

Two Dancing On Ice 2018 celebrities have already got involved in a backstage romance.

Dancing On Ice originally ran between 2006 and 2014 but will be back on TV in January for a tenth series on ITV.

It’s already been confirmed that a total of 12 celebrities will be skating to impress the ice panel, consisting of skating legends Torvill and Dean, show favourite Jason Gardiner and new judge Ashley Banjo, as well as the viewers at home.

Two of those on the line up are Rugby hunk Max Evans and Hollyoaks’ Stephanie Waring, who have already got to know one another intimately it seems.

Attending the ITV Gala along with the rest of the Dancing On Ice 2018 line up, Max and Stephanie couldn’t keep their hands off one another.

The couple were pictured holding hands as they arrived and left the event, before being seen kissing in a rickshaw.

On signing up for the show, Stephanie said this week: “It’s quite a daunting challenge.

“The first day was pretty tough. I thought I’d be better than I was. I fell over once.

“It’s very technical; it’s the way you hold yourself, the positioning of your feet. Balancing is the hardest thing to do.

“I thought ‘well I can do yoga, I can obviously skate on ice… no Steph you can’t!'”

Joining Max and Stephanie on the line up are stars including Corrie’s Brooke Vincent, singer Cheryl Baker and Love Island contestant Kem Cetinay.
