Wes Nelson confirmed as twelfth Dancing on Ice 2019 contestant
 
Wes Nelson is the twelfth celebrity skater confirmed for a brand new series of Dancing on Ice 2019, which returns to ITV in the New Year. 
 
Wes was announced live on BBC Radio One's Maya Jama show. He joins Gemma Collins, Richard Blackwood, James Jordan, Brian McFadden, Saira Khan, Ryan Sidebottom, Melody Thornton, Mark Little, Jane Danson, Saara Aalto and Didi Conn, and completes the 2019 line up. 
 
Wes 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, Wes said "Gemma Collins is going to wipe the floor with me, I'm super intimidated. I've been looking at the line up thinking 'oh my gosh!' Of course you'll be seeing my hips on the ice and the hips don't lie!"
