James Jordan confirmed as third Dancing on Ice 2019 contestant

 

James Jordan is the third celebrity skater confirmed for a brand new series of Dancing on Ice 2019, which returns to ITV in the New Year. 

 

James was announced during a live appearance on today's BBC Radio Five Live Breakfast.

 

James will be getting his skates and sequins on ready to compete alongside eleven other celebrities in the quest for glory, under the watchful eye of the skating legends Torvill and Dean, who head up the judging panel. 

 

Each week the twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers, who will ultimately decide who wins the show. 

 

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby once again return to present the show. 

 

On joining the show, James said "I can dance but I'm a lot older than I used to be. People are going to probably say I've got an unfair advantage but when I got on the ice I actually shocked myself how bad I was. I want to be able to impress Torvill and Dean more than anyone else, but I'm a lot worse than I thought I'd be."
