Dancing On Ice will return in January 2014 for the final series with an all-star skating line-up.
In fact, this year’s batch of celebrity skaters is a full list of returning stars from the last eight series of the show.
Olympic skating professionals Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be back to whip the skaters into shape, before the returning stars battle it out to see who really is the skater of skaters.
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will be back at the helm, guiding the skaters through each week of the final series.
Schofield says, “Viewers are in for an absolute treat this year. I’m over the moon we’ll be welcoming back to the ice some of our very best skaters and characters from over the years.”
There’s an X Factor star, an Emmerdale favourite, a former footballer, stars of EastEnders and many more who will be donning their skates for another bid at the title.
