Dancing On Ice is officially coming back to our screens in 2018 and now the excitement has gone up a notch as another celebrity has been CONFIRMED for the show!
And now we can reveal ANOTHER Coronation Street star in the form of Anthony Cotton who has been announced as the 11th star to be joining the line-up.
The actor – who plays Sean Tully – said: “I better get my skates on – I’ve got practising to do!”
Former mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will join the judging panel alongside Jason Gardiner and Ashley Banjo – but which other stars will be getting their skates on?
Dancing On Ice line-up: Perri Shakes-Drayton
It comes after track athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton also announced she would be taking to the rink on Monday morning.
The star said: “It is an opportunity and I was told in the past I’d never be able to run again and that was not nice to be told…
“I came across Kem from Love Island and we saw each other at the ice rink. He saw my skills, I saw his skills… I’m better than him. I’m most excited about the costumes!”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Donna Air
The former Byker Grove star was announced as the ninth contestant during an interview on Loose Women, with the mum-of-one – who is the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger brother James’ girlfriend – admitting that she was pretty nervous about getting her skates on.
‘It is absolutely terrifying,’ Donna, 38, told the panel. “It’s exciting though, it’s looking like it’s going to be a great series. It’s really difficult. Apparently my posture’s terrible so I’ve got to work on that. I need to build more core strength. My daughter’s like ‘oh no, mum you’re going to be so embarrassing.'”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Alex Beresford
Good Morning Britain weather man, Alex Beresford has been announced as the eighth star to be joining the line-up.
The exclusive announcement was made on GMB when Alex gave viewers a glimpse of what’s to come as he took to the ice rink at the National History Museum.
Getting his skates on while holding onto a penguin, Alex told Kate Garraway and Ben Shepard he’d always wanted to do the show.
Dancing On Ice line-up: Monty Panesar
England cricketer, Monty was previously linked to the show in early October and he officially announced the news during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Dancing On Ice line-up: Jake Quickenden
X Factor singer Jake Quickenden has been announced as the sixth star to be joining the show.
The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star announced he was joining the show on Wednesday morning’s Lorraine.
The hunky star told viewers: “I feel so lucky that I’ve been asked to do it. I’m more worried about injuring my partner. The last thing I want to do is kick someone in the face with ice skates on.”
He added: “But I’m more worried about Jason Gardiner.”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Candice Brown
The 2016 Great British Bake Off winner will be swapping the heat of the kitchen for the chill of the ice rink as the news was confirmed when she appeared on BBC Radio Two’s Chris Evans Show.
Candice said: “It’s nerve wracking. I start my training today. I take my first steps on the ice later on. My friends call me Bambi on Ice and that’s just normal day to day!”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Max Evans
The sports star – who has played for Scotland – said: “I haven’t done any skating since I was a kid, and this is completely different having to skate on live television. I’ve had two training sessions which have hurt my feet a lot. We’ve all had a dance, which is familiar territory, but skating is so not…”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Kem Cetinay
Kem Cetinay shot to fame this summer on ITV2’s Love Island where he was crowned champion next to girlfriend, Amber Davies and has since released his own single ‘Little Bit Leave It’ with BFF Chris Hughes.
But the 21-year-old will be putting on his skates after the official Dancing On Ice Twitter page announced the news with a message reading: “Yes! @KemCetinay is 100% our type on ice. Welcome to #DancingOnIce!”
Dancing On Ice line-up: Brooke Vincent
‘I love a challenge. Ice skating – what an amazing skill,’ Brooke, 25, told the hosts.
‘Next year I can go with the girls and be like “I can do this, I can do that” and they’ll be holding onto the sides.’
Dancing On Ice line-up: Cheryl Baker
Bucks Fizz singer Cheryl Baker announced she was joining the line-up while appearing on Lorraine on Tuesday morning and we’re SO excited.
The 63-year-old former Eurovision winner has admitted just how scared she was starting to feel, telling Lorraine: ‘I wasn’t feeling nervous because I didn’t know what to expect.
‘But as of yesterday I am feeling nervous but it was hard because they were giving me all these things to do, all these movements and I was like “I can’t do that!”.’
“Next year I can go with the girls and be like ‘I can do this, I can do that’ and they’ll be holding onto the sides.
“I’ve been trying to lose a few pounds to get in them leotards. I started my ice training on Saturday. If I get injured at least I’ll look sparkly on the way to the hospital!”
Here’s some of those rumoured to be joining the line-up so far:
Dancing On Ice rumoured line-up:
She’s conquered Big Brother and I’m A Celebrity – but could the Pricey be set to dance on ice next? The Loose Women star sparked speculation when she revealed that she’d had talks about doing it – and it’s something we’d certainly like to see!
Loose Women star Saira is never afraid to speak her mind and proved so on Celebrity Big Brother. But will her skating skills be something to talk about?
It looks like Brooke might not be the only Corrie favourite to get the Dancing On Ice treatment as Antony has been linked to the show too, having reportedly been seen practising his moves at an ice rink.
Mum-of-four Alex – wife of football star Steven Gerrard – is said to be one of the stars getting her skates on.
