Fans were left delighted last year when popular ice skating show Dancing On Ice returned to ITV with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. After reality TV star Jake Quickenden was crowned the winner, it was revealed that the show will be returning for another series in 2019.

With the end of 2018 fast-approaching, rumours about which celebrities will take part in the new series are heating up, with both TOWIE's Gemma Collins and Love Island's Wes Nelson favourites to join the line-up.
