This year’s Dancing on Ice line-up is one of the strongest in the history of the competition, with Jason competing with the likes of Myleene Klass, Joe-Warren Plant, Colin Jackson and Rebekah Vardy.
Jason is one of the stars to keep an eye out, after previously showing his skills on Strictly. He’ll perform alongside professional dancer Alexandra Schauman, hoping to be crowned Dancing On Ice’s 2021 champion.
But how did Jason do on Strictly Come Dancing? Here’s what you need to know.
When was Jason Donovan on Strictly and did he win?
Jason impressed during his time on the show after partnering with professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff.
The singer came in third on the competition and equipped himself well to reach the final. He missed out on the top prize, with McFly drummer Harry Judd winning the competition and Chelsee Healey coming in second place.
He’s no stranger to reality shows, having also starred in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2006 in the series which was eventually won by Matt Willis.
The singer and actor goes up against one of the most star-studded line-ups to date on this year’s Dancing On Ice.
Jason previously admitted he was concerned about possible injuries, saying: ‘I have to say, injury is a big part of the jeopardy of the show. ‘I think it’s a little bit different than Strictly because, you know, Strictly is really defined by the moves that you do. But skating is very much about the flow and the rhythm of being on the ice. ‘Let’s be honest, ice is not that forgiving. Um, and I am 52 I know I’m looking pretty good for that, but that could all change!’
The current series has proven one of the most dramatic in the history of the show before the first show has even aired.
There have been a string of injuries in the run up to the series. Denise Van Outen was rushed to A&E after a nasty fall, while Yebin Mok suffered a horrific leg injury and was forced to leave the competition.
Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo will judge the celebrity’s performances on this year’s show, while Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will also be returning to host the show.
Dancing on Ice begins today at 6pm on ITV.
