Olympic Champion and Presenter Greg Rutherford MBE is the is fifth celebrity confirmed to be taking part in the new series of Dancing on Ice. 

Revealing the news exclusively on Good Morning Britain today, Greg said:

 "My kids love dancing around so hopefully they are going to enjoy watching me dance with blades on my feet! I think this is going to be a really different experience but one that will be quite exciting. I like a challenge and I needed a reason to go out and do stuff again and here we are. I want to perform something that's never been done before, that's my aim. I'll go 100,000% on this. I'll try hard, I'm in no way expecting to be good but I will work as hard as I can."

Greg is the fifth celebrity to be announced, joining the previously announced World Champion Boxer Ricky Hatton MBE, actress Claire Sweeney, actress and singer Hannah Spearritt and West End star Amber Davies.    

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?
