Dancing On Ice Judges

Winners odds | Next elimination odds

Until the series ended in 2014, various judges appeared to cast their eager eyes over the talents of the celebrities on Dancing on Ice, from the contentious Jason Gardiner, to the demure Katarina Witt.

The mainstay was Robin Cousins who, apart from a brief sojourn for illness, presided over all seven series. His critiques come from a position of authority as the best male solo skater the UK has seen, but he is regarded as fair in his judgements.

For the relaunch of the series in 2018, the judges are Jason Gardiner and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo (see above).
