Dancing on Ice 2019 Celebrities Confirmed

Now that Strictly is underway, ITV have started to announce which celebrities will be taking part in the next series of Dancing on Ice. I'll be updating this post with the latest names to be revealed by ITV.


Skating legends Torvill and Dean will once again head up the judging panel and Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will return to present the show.


Each week the twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers, who will ultimately decide who wins the show.


Here are those famous faces who'll be taking part in the latest series...


Gemma Collins

Reality TV Star


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Gemma said "I know how hard it is. I've done my research! I am scared, I am nervous. I really want to give it a go. I love the costumes. I love fun factor!"



Richard Blackwood

Actor


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Richard said "I'm training because I know they're going to put me in some tight stuff. There's going to be a lot of shape. I'm training from now!"



James Jordan

Former Strictly Professional


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, James said "I can dance but I'm a lot older than I used to be. People are going to probably say I've got an unfair advantage but when I got on the ice I actually shocked myself how bad I was. I want to be able to impress Torvill and Dean more than anyone else, but I'm a lot worse than I thought I'd be."



Brain McFadden

Singer & Songwriter


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Brian said "I'm very excited. I've already been practising out the back garden on my rollerblades and my mum says I'm a one man Torvill and Dean." 



Saira Khan

Television Presenter


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Saira said "I'm in it to win it!  I thought 'I'm too old, I can't do it, I'm going fall.' And my little boy said 'have you heard yourself mum?' He shamed me into it. I'm doing this for my kids. Honestly I cannot skate. I've never been on ice skates."



Ryan Sidebottom

Cricketer


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Ryan said "I’m immensely excited. It’s obviously something totally different, massively out of my comfort zone. I’m just going to enjoy the ride, I don’t take myself too seriously. I’m going to embrace it, enjoy it, and have a laugh and a giggle along the way.” 


Melody Thornton

Pop star


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Melody said "I guess the cat's out of the bag. I'm so excited, I can't wait to see you and I can't wait to do some skating for you!" 



Mark Little

Actor


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Mark said "How exciting this is! My skating is pretty rickety. I'll be trying to find the elegance, the strength, the smoothness. I'm a bit of a danger man, a bit of a risk taker, and I do like dancing so let's see what happens."



Jane Danson

Actress


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Jane said "I've got a big birthday next month so I'm seeing it as a challenge for the fab 40. I'm just looking forward to it and trying not to think about being damaged. It's been a bit of a life long dream." 



Saara Aalto

Pop star


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Saara said "I'm super excited about this, I love new challenges and I'm very ambitious. I can be very competitive, but I mainly want to challenge myself. I'll be saying to myself 'Saara, you need to push yourself more!' I am so ready for this and I can't wait to get on the ice."



Didi Conn

Actress and Frenchy from Grease


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Didi said "Boy oh boy, I'm going from being a Pink Lady to Queen of the Ice. I'm coming to the UK on Monday and I can't wait to see you!"



Wes Nelson

Islander


Speaking about joining Dancing on Ice, Wes said "Gemma Collins is going to wipe the floor with me, I'm super intimidated. I've been looking at the line up thinking 'oh my gosh!' Of course you'll be seeing my hips on the ice and the hips don't lie!"


Dancing on Ice returns in 2019 on ITV
