Ria Hebden's Dancing on Ice debut wasn't the smoothest as the TV presenter found herself in the dreaded skate off against Ben Foden.


Luckily for Hebden, the Dancing on Ice panel decided to save her, as Foden became the first contestant to be eliminated from the series.

She'll return to the ice for the show's Movie Week, and will no doubt be pulling out all the stops to redeem herself. So, what will she be dancing to?

The Dancing on Ice songs for Week Three have been revealed and for her second performance, Hebden will be skating to Into The Unknown from Disney's Frozen 2.

She'll compete against the remaining Dancing on Ice 2022 contestants, including Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Brendan Cole, Coronation Street Sally Dynevor and dancer Regan Gascoigne, who currently holds the highest score on the leaderboard.

Ria Hebden's Dancing on Ice score:

Week One: 6.0, 6.0, 6,5, 6.0 = 24.5

What has Ria Hebden said about joining Dancing on Ice 2022?

Speaking on Lorraine back in October, Hebden said that she found the prospect of joining the series "a little bit scary".

She added: "It'll be fun. I mean, this is one of ITV's most sparkly shows, so when they asked me I was like, 'Absolutely! I watch it at home, it'll be brilliant to learn a new scary skill'

"But you've got to say yes to things that excite you that are a little bit scary because that's where the growth happens, right? I'm hoping so anyway!"

Asked whether she's skated before, she said: “I went when I was 10 years old with my grandma and grandad to – and people in Yorkshire will remember – Bradford Ice Rink. I skated there. If I’m honest the last time I went on the ice was about six years ago with Noah [her son] and I did more drinking of mulled wine than skating!”

In addition to Hebden, the full 2022 line-up included Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor, Happy Mondays dancer Bez, Paralympian Stef Reid, Love Island’s Liberty Poole, rugby star Ben Foden, Paul Gascoigne’s son Regan Gascoigne, pop star Rachel Stevens, professional dancer Brendan Cole and BMX Olympic silver medalist Kye Whyte.
