Winners odds | Next elimination odds

Dancing on Ice is back for a new series in early 2018, and already excitement is building for the series return.

The 12 celebrities hoping to impress on the ice are currently training hard to master the rigorous skills of ice skating.

If they are to emulate coaches Torvill and Dean in The Bolero in the final, they really have to knuckle down and apply themselves. This is not an easy ride for the celebs.

Here are the contestants taking part in Dancing on Ice 2018, which will be updated as they are confirmed.

Brooke Vincent


Brooke said: “I love a challenge. Ice skating - what an amazing skill. Next year I can go with the girls and be like 'I can do this, I can do that' and they'll be holding onto the sides.

“I’ve been trying to lose a few pounds to get in them leotards. I started my ice training on Saturday. If I get injured at least I'll look sparkly on the way to the hospital.”

Cheryl Baker


Cheryl said: "I started training yesterday. It was such huge fun. I've never skated apart from when I was about 12. I am feeling nervous."

Kem Cetinay


Kem said "I still can't believe I'm going to be on Dancing on Ice. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd be strapping on a pair of skates and dancing in some lycra.

“Anyone who knows me will know how competitive I am, so I'm going to work very hard to stay on my feet. I can't wait to get my skates on."

Candice Brown


Candice said "It's nerve wracking. I start my training today. I take my first steps on the ice later on.

“My friends call me Bambi on Ice and that's just normal day to day.”

Max Evans


Max said: "I haven't done any skating since I was a kid, and this is completely different having to skate on live television.

“I’ve had two training sessions which have hurt my feet a lot.

“We've all had a dance, which is familiar territory, but skating is so not..."

Jake Quickenden


Jake said: "I’m terrified. I had my first training session – I was freezing. Ice is cold! But it was amazing, the coaches are unbelievable. I just feel so lucky that I’ve been asked to do it.

"I’m so buzzing, I can’t even explain. It’s my mum's favourite... I’ve been wearing Danielle’s tights to get used to the lycra!”



Singer Lemar replaced international cricket star Monty Panesar after he was injured during training.

Lemar, who starred in British talent show Fame Academy, will dance with professional skater Melody Le Moal.


Alex Beresford


Alex said: "I literally started training on Tuesday so I'm at the beginning of my journey.

“I’m actually finding out who my partner is after this show so I'm really excited.

“I’ve wanted to do this show for ages. It's been the biggest secret I've ever kept."

Donna Air


Donna said: "It is absolutely terrifying. It's exciting though, it's looking like it's going to be a great series.

“It's really difficult. Apparently my posture's terrible so I've got to work on that. I need to build more core strength.

“My daughter's like 'oh no, mum you're going to be so embarrassing."

Perri Shakes-Drayton


Perri said: "It is an opportunity and I was told in the past I’d never be able to run again and that was not nice to be told...

“Now the fact my body feels good, I’ve been given a challenge, an opportunity, I’m going to go give it my best shot.”

Antony Cotton


Antony said: "I better get my skates on – I've got practising to do!"

Stephanie Waring


Stephanie said: "It's quite a daunting challenge. The first day was pretty tough. I thought I'd be better than I was. I fell over once.

“It's very technical; it's the way you hold yourself, the positioning of your feet.

“Balancing is the hardest thing to do. I thought 'well I can do yoga, I can obviously skate on ice'....no Steph you can't!"
