Dancing On Ice ended back in 2014 but fans were quick to call for its comeback and in January 2018 the iconic ice-skating competition finally returned, with This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield reprising their roles as hosts.
The new series boasted an all-star line-up which included Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent, Love Island star Kem Cetinay and eventual winner Jake Quickenden.
Before the 2018 run had even finished it was confirmed the show would be returning in 2019 and fans are already desperate to know which stars – and judges – will be on the season.
So when will the new series start and which celebrities are on the line-up?
Here’s everything we know so far about Dancing On Ice 2019…
Will Dancing On Ice be back in 2019?
Dancing On Ice will return to ITV for another series in 2019, it was confirmed earlier this year.
Hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield announced the news on This Morning in January, telling viewers: “We can exclusively announce that it has been rebooked, recommissioned, re-bought for another series next year so we will be back next year.”
A later statement from ITV called the renewal a “no-brainer”, with head of entertainment commissioning at the channel, Siobhan Greene, saying: “The show’s welcome back has exceeded our expectations and it’s been fantastic to see the audience at home loving it.
“The recommission is a no-brainer and it’s brilliant for everyone involved to know it’ll be back next year.”
Who’s on the contestant line-up for Dancing On Ice 2019?
Love Island star Wes Nelson has been confirmed for the line-up alongside stars like Didi Conn, Saara Aalto, Jane Danson, Mark Little and Melody Thornton.
Ryan Sidebottom, Saira Khan, Brian McFadden, James Jordan, Gemma Collins and Richard Blackwood make up the rest of the cast.
Who’s on the judging panel for Dancing On Ice 2019?
On this year’s Dancing On Ice, the judging the panel consisted of Diversity’s Ashley Banjo, Jason Gardiner and ice-skating icons Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, with all four set to return for 2019.
Ashley’s brother Jordan Banjo, however, will not be returning to host the backstage segment.
Former judge Karen Barber is returning to the show, this time as a head coach, and will reunite with Jason seven years after their infamous row.
Professional Dan Whiston, meanwhile, has confirmed he’s stepping up to a new role as Associate Creative Director.
Who won Dancing On Ice 2018?
Former The X Factor and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Jake Quickenden was crowned the winner of Dancing On Ice in March.
The reality TV regular beat Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent and rugby star Max Evans to be crowned the champion of the first series since the show returned to screens.
