Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards joins the cast of Dancing on Ice 2024

Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards joins the cast of Dancing on Ice.  Swapping skis for skates, Eddie will be taking to the ice alongside his fellow celebrities as training for the 2024 series has now begun.  

Eddie said, “It’s bittersweet as whilst I’m delighted to be taking part in the new series I’m gutted for Stephen and wish him a speedy recovery. Dancing on Ice is a show I’ve always wanted to do. It’s a challenge I think I’m going to relish!”   

Eddie joins the cast after Gogglebox star Stephen Lustig-Webb had to withdraw from the show due to an injury he sustained during training.  

Eddie will be joining the class of 2024 which includes, World Champion Boxer Ricky Hatton MBE, actress Claire Sweeney, actress and singer Hannah Spearritt, West End star Amber Davies and Olympic Champion and presenter Greg Rutherford MBE, TV personality Miles Nazaire, comedian and writer Lou Sanders, actor Ricky Norwood, Broadcaster and DJ Adele Roberts, actor Ryan Thomas and Emmerdale Roxy Shahidi.            

Dancing on Ice, created and produced by Lifted Entertainment, returns to ITV1, STV and ITVX in 2024 with a new cast. Twelve celebrities prepare to embark on the ultimate challenge as they take to the ice each week, skating live in a bid to impress both the panel and viewers at home. 

Back for a sparkling new series, the greatest show on ice promises more glitz, glamour and show stopping performances as the celebrities brave it all to learn this dangerous discipline. But who has what it takes to master the skill and steps and lift the trophy at the end of the series?
