Back in January, 12 celebrities made their way onto the ice in a bid to impress the Dancing on Ice panel, which this year included Oti Mabuse, who took over from John Barrowman.

Now, we're just down to three Dancing on Ice 2022 contestants - Kimberly Wyatt, Brendan Cole and Regan Gascoigne - one of whom will be crowned this year's champion and join the other Dancing on Ice winners.

Pussycat Dolls star Wyatt and Strictly's Cole appear to be the two favourites to win this year, but there's one more show to go and a final Dancing on Ice vote to determine who this year's winner is.

As the final airs on ITV, here's everything you need to now about Dancing on Ice.

What time is Dancing on Ice on tonight?

The Dancing on Ice final is on ITV on Sunday 27th March at 7:30pm.

It will be a two-hour special, which will see each celebrity perform twice. The vote will then be frozen, with the celebrity in third place revealed. The final two will then go head-to-head one more time, before the winner is revealed - but who will it be?

This year's Dancing on Ice panel includes Strictly's Oti Mabuse, who takes over from John Barrownman.

“As a professional dancer I have always had so much respect for the skating professionals on Dancing on Ice,” Oti said, following the announcement. “It is an exceptional skill that is also so beautiful to watch."

Dancing on Ice‘s Brendan Cole has said he’s “excited” by the prospect of being judged by a former colleague, adding that Mabuse will make an “incredible judge”.

Phillip Schofield has presented every series, usually with Holly Willoughby, although Christine Lampard stepped in for series seven to nine. Holly and Phil will return to the series this year.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com and other press at a roundtable ahead of the first show, Cole said: “I think Oti is going to be absolutely amazing.

“She’s a phenomenal person, on and off the dance floor. She has great dance experience which she’ll bring to the show and I think you’ve got to have different elements from each of the [judges].

"If all the judges were the same, it’d be really boring. I think she’s going to make an incredible judge. Her personality is larger than life and she’s a great friend of mine so I’m really excited for her.

“And likewise she’s excited for me. [We’ve had] various conversations about this since it’s all been announced so it’s really exciting.”

It was previously confirmed that Barrowman wouldn't be returning.

“We thank John Barrowman for two brilliant years on the Dancing On Ice panel and are pleased to be working with him again as host of the forthcoming All Star Musicals specials," an ITV spokesperson said.

Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com, Dancing on Ice’s Torvill and Dean opened up about Barrowman’s exit, saying: "It’ll feel fresh.”

“I think whatever the judging panel is going to be – I’m not going to tell you that yet, it’s a surprise,” Dean teased. “But you know, John was wonderful and brought a lot of energy.

“But I think we’ll maintain that with the new panel. And I think it’ll feel fresh and different again, so we’re excited.”

How to vote on Dancing on Ice 2022

Will the Dancing on Ice 'Golden Ticket' return for season 14?

In 2021, Dancing on Ice introduced the golden ticket, which was a way for the judges to put a couple straight through to the next round, without facing the public vote.

The Golden Ticket has not yet appeared on Dancing On Ice 2022, so it looks like it won't appear in this season.

Dancing on Ice training

Professional skater Vanessa Bauer shared an insight into the life of an ice dancer – and it’s not exactly pretty.

In a behind-the-scenes update, Bauer shared a video on her Instagram story showing a large scrape across her back, telling fans that her partner Brandon had accidentally ‘sliced’ her during training.

"Dancing on Ice really is a bit dangerous," she added, before panning to a timid-looking Brendan.

We’re guessing the training’s not all that bad, though, as contestant Brendan previously said he’s delighted to have been partnered with Vanessa and that he was “ecstatic” to be taking part in the series.

Vanessa's injury comes after Denise Van Outen badly injured her shoulder during training ahead of the last series, forcing her to withdraw from the competition.

The actress and singer dislocated her shoulder and fractured the bone in three places after falling.
