Review

He’s back. After being dropped from the ice panel in favour of the flamboyant Louie Spence, acid-tongued Jason Gardiner returns. And he won’t be holding back on his comments. So expect to hear that the skating celebs look like a man in drag, move like a mime artist with rigor mortis or go round and round like faecal matter that won’t flush.

Celebrities quietly practising half axels and forward crossovers are Hollywood’s Pamela Anderson, Corrie’s Samia Ghadie, singer Shayne Ward, Baroness King of Bow Oona King, rugby star Gareth Thomas, TV presenter Keith Chegwin, actor Matt Lapinskas, presenter Anthea Turner, comedian Joe Pasquale, TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger and Olympians Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell.

Summary

New series. Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley present the celebrity ice-dancing contest as a new batch of famous faces hope to make the transition from novice skaters to semi-professional performers, with the help of coaches Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. Those battling for viewers' votes this year are former Baywatch bombshell Pamela Anderson, comedian Joe Pasquale, TV presenters Anthea Turner and Keith Chegwin, Coronation Street's Samia Ghadie (Maria Connor), The X Factor's Shayne Ward, ex-Towie star Lauren Goodger, Olympians Luke Campbell and Beth Tweddle, actor Matt Lapinskas, rugby star Gareth Thomas and Labour peer Oona King.
