Although Dancing On Ice is still a way away from being aired, we already have a sneak peak at the first of the celebrity contestants…
But they’re not making it easy! A picture has been uploaded of one of the new contestants to the show’s official Instagram account – but only of their torso… .
It was captioned: “Our brand new celebs are getting to grips with the ice ⛸❄️🎉 Follow us for more first looks of our #DancingOnIceline-up @itv #ITV”.
Whoever it is can be seen holding a handful of ice and wearing what looks like the kind of bracelet you bring back from your summer holiday. Clues, perhaps?
According to speculation, the man behind the impressive photograph is actually former X Factor star Jake Quickenden. The hunk also made an appearance in the I’m A Celebrity jungle. And reportedly, bosses at ITV are keen to sign him up as the show’s resident ‘eye candy’.
The Sun reports, “Jake was a massive hit with the ladies during his stints on The X Factor and I’m A Celeb.”
“Producers want him to bring the eye-candy to Dancing On Ice too. He hasn’t got any skating experience but is already super-confident. He’s fearless and they feel they’ll be able to push him week after week.”
It’s almost impossible to decipher exactly who the torso belongs to from the photo, but from the looks of it they know how to keep in shape!
Some fans of the show think they know exactly who the body belongs to. One simply wrote: “OMG is that Max “.
Thankfully someone else followed it up and said: “I think it’s Max Evans!? Maybe“.
The Max Evans these fans are talking about is most likely to be the professional rugby player. His brother, Thom Evans’ stared in Strictly Come Dancing back in 2014 and set many hearts aflutter.
If this first sneak peak is in fact Max, it would explain his athletic physique and he will no doubt have many admirers.
Others joked that the picture was in fact showing Philip Schofield, who will present Dancing on Ice alongside Holly Willoughby.
Another suggestion was Judge Rinder, but do you have any guesses? Only time will tell who the star really is, we hope that ITV release some more clues soon!
