Dancing on Ice

Episode 3

Hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the Greatest Show on Ice continues. It’s Movie week and our celebrities and their professional skating partners perform routines inspired by famous films in the hope of avoiding the dreaded skate off. Olympic legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean head up our ice panel alongside dance star Ashley Banjo and the sensational Oti Mabuse.

Series overview

Dancing on Ice returns for a brand-new series in January 2022.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are back to present the greatest show on ice with Torvill and Dean and Ashley Banjo resuming their judging roles on the Ice Panel. Joining the panel this year is professional dancer Oti Mabuse. 

The celebrities strapping on their skates in the hope of winning the competition are Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor, Happy Mondays dancer Bez, Paralympian Stef Reid, Love Island’s Liberty Poole, rugby star Ben Foden, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, Paul Gascoigne’s son, dancer Regan Gascoigne, pop star Rachel Stevens, professional dancer Brendan Cole, presenter Ria Hebden, BMX Olympic silver medalist Kye Whyte and The Vamps' Connor Ball.

Expertly guiding the celebrity novices from their shaky first steps to spectacular routines are their professional partners. Matt Evers, a part of Dancing On Ice since it launched on ITV in 2006, returns to the show alongside fellow series favourites Alexandra Shauman and husband Łukasz Różycki, Andy Buchanan and wife Robin Johnstone. Mark Hanretty, Brendyn Hatfield, Vanessa Bauer, Karina Manta and Joe Johnson all return. Reigning champion pro Angela Egan who lifted the trophy with Sonny Jay last series is also back. Completing the pro team are three brand-new additions to the 2022 line-up as world class competitive figure skaters Morgan Swales, Tippy Packard and Colin Grafton all make their Dancing on Ice debuts.

In the new year the celebrity contestants and their professional partners will be skating live each week in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers at home who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
