ITV has revealed all 12 celebrities on next year’s line-up, and there’s some belters!
In the new year, so early 2020!
Let’s take a look!
Who are they? TV personality and entertainer
“I’m delighted to say that I’ll be joining the Dancing on Ice line up for 2020. I’m looking forward to meeting Holly and Phil. I’m very excited… it’s performance time!”
Who are they? Love Island contestant
“I’ve skated once in my life for fun, so I’ve no experience at all. I’m up for the challenge. I’m more excited than scared. I’m competitive so I think that will drive me.”
Who are they? Football pundit and former player
I am going on as a total novice. I’m starting from scratch here. This is going to be a massive challenge for me. I’ve been taking it easy for the last few years since I finished (football) so let’s just see how this one goes.
Who are they? ITV newsreader
I’m super excited to be joining the line up for DOI! I can’t wait to get out there on the ice and start training. While the news agenda is already pretty busy these days, I know life is about to get a lot busier…with a few bruises along the way!”
Who are they? Steps singer
“What am I doing? I have frantically been You Tubing James Jordan and Ray Quinn. I have kids now so it’s a skill I can learn and take my kids to the ice. It’s scary and exciting and now there’s no turning back. I know I’m going to be put through my paces and that’s the name of the game.”
Who are they? Coronation Street star
I haven’t been on the ice for about 40 years. Yesterday was my first session on the ice. It was good, I really enjoyed it, I did’t fall. I was a bit scared, I was quite nervous. I can’t believe I’m 50 next year and I just thought ‘if I don’t do this now I’m never going to have the chance to do it again’.”
Who are they? Member of dance group Diversity
I’ve done a couple of training sessions. Not gonna lie, it’s hard. It’s game face.
Who are they? Paralympic sprinter
“After Rio I achieved my ultimate goal and then I thought ‘what else can I do?’ This opportunity came about and I couldn’t pass it up. I love challenging myself and experiencing new things.”
Who are they? Former EastEnders star and TV personality
I can’t even dance on a dance floor so Dancing on Ice is just a silly idea! I’ve done no exercise since the baby was born. Stacey [Solomon, his girlfriend] thinks it’s funny. I’m going to learn how to skate and I’ll do it with a smile on my face.”
Who are they? TV magician
“Can I ice skate? Barely. But I did say to the producers ‘if I’m going to do this, can I try to do magic on ice?’ I will try and attempt to put magic into the show if I can. We start tomorrow! On the ice for the very first time.”
Who are they? Former talk show host
“I love physical stuff. Every day I bike ride, I weight train, I love any physical thing. I learnt to ski at 37, I learnt to roller blade at 42. I’m 62 in December. I thought ‘why not?’
Who are they? Model
“I’ve got some really big news. I’m going to be on Dancing on Ice 2020! At the moment no nerves. I’m excited more than anything.”
Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent editor, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. He subsequently honed his writing skills over several features and investigative pieces, arguably letting The Hook audience in on way too much of his personal life.
