The first of 12 contestants has been announced for the new series starting in 2021
The judging panel remains the same as last year with Torvill and Dean, AShley Banjo and John Barrowman.
It will be hosted by Phil and Holly.
I read somewhere there will be a change in professional skaters. Not sure of all of them, though I do know that Alex Murphy who partnered Joe Swash to his unexpected win last year, has not been asked to return!

Thank you @Cleoriff for the new thread.
Great news to hear DOI is to return and Ashley is to be a judge.
Can`t wait to learn who else will be Dancing On Ice...

Hmmm. Can this line up be better than Strictly 2020? So far we have a serial reality show groupee in Mylee Klass who I thought would be more Strictly than DOI.
Given some celebs have pretty much hung onto the Pro's for most of the routines, it could be pretty dismal series to watch without that interaction let alone the icy atmosphere (boom boom) of no audience. Never thought I'd write it but DOI without the audience is going to be boring.

I've found a Radio times article with some rumoured contestants.
Just posting the names I know
Sally Dyvenor (from Corrie)
Bez Berry (Happy Mondays)
Wayne Bridge (Footballer)
Denise Van Outen
Denise Lewis (Olympian)
Samantha Giles (Emmerdale)
Jodie Prenger(West End Musicals)
Jake Canuso (Mateo in Benidorm)
A couple of Love Islanders and some fool from Ru Pauls Drag Race...
All can be seen in the article above....
If the rumours are true, I'm looking forward to seeing Bez from Happy Mondays. I'm sure he will provide comedy...if nothing else.

Thank you for speculated list of possible celebs on DOI and two confirmed taking part.
To be honest, I don`t watch soaps, so some of those names don`t mean much to me.
That said, from comments Marlene has made about her daughters skating and wanting her to take part, it will be interesting to see how she copes; and Denise, having been runner-up in Strictly, will probably be competitive; so should be worth watching, in my opinion.

Now they should make it competitve, interesting, and worth watching in my opinion
