Ahead of its return in 2021, ITV has started to announce the celebrity skaters taking part in the 13th series of Dancing on Ice.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will once again host the proceedings, with John Barrowman joining the judging panel of Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill and Ashley Banjo.

Here are the confirmed contestants.

Will Myleene show her Klass in the rink?

Joe-Warren Plant

Joe-Warren Plant stars as Jacob Gallagher in Emmerdale, having joined the series at the age of eight in 2010.

By far the youngest in the line-up, Plant will be hoping to out-skate his more experienced rivals.

Denise Van Outen

Best known for presenting ITV’s The Big Breakfast, actor and presenter Denise Van Outen has since performed on the West End and Broadway, and finished as runner-up in Strictly Come Dancing in 2012.

Ever-baring her competitive streak, Van Outen placed fifth in ITV’s The Masked Singer as ‘Fox’ earlier in 2020.

As a former Strictly bronze medallist, Donovan is one to watch.

Having already appeared in Strictly Come Dancing in 2005, Jackson clearly has happy feet.

Graham Bell

Former Olympic skier and broadcaster Graham Bell will take to the ice much easier than most, swapping his skis for skates and the slopes for the rink, but will he have the moves to match?

After a successful career in which he represented Great Britain at five Winter Olympics, he began working in television as a commentator before moving on screen as a presenter on multiple series, including the 2002 RTS Award-winning Ski Sunday.

A 2016 MOBO award winner for Best Female Act, her music videos have racked up hundreds of millions of views across all platforms, and earnt her an opening spot on the Birmingham leg (her hometown) of Nicki Minaj’s world tour.

Billie Shepherd

Essex’s own Billie Shepherd made her TV debut on The Only Way Is Essex back in 2010, becoming a regular member in series two.

In 2014 she began juggling motherhood with her on-screen duties, and after leaving TOWIE in 2016, Shepherd and her sister Sam Faiers began merging the two in ITV reality series, The Mummy Diaries.
