Dancing on Ice 2022: What is Bez’s real name?

Dancing On Ice’s Bez has quickly become a fan favourite of the 2022 series.

The 57-year-old Happy Mondays star, who is the first and only celebrity to skate with a helmet, has already treated viewers to a stellar skating debut, where he was lowered to the ice on a pair of giant maracas.

He then performed a chaotic Indiana Jones-themed routine for movie week, which included snakes, a giant boulder and dialogue from the blockbusters.

Last week, viewers feared Bez’s time could be up as he found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard. But luckily, he was saved by the public vote.

Besides wondering why Bez wears a helmet each time he takes to the ice, many viewers have also wanted to know whether Bez is his real name.

What is Bez’s real name?

Bez is best known as the maraca player, dancer, and de facto mascot of rock band Happy Mondays.

His real name is Mark Berry and he hails from Bolton, Lancashire.

He’s good friends with his bandmate Shaun Ryder, and the pair have made frequent, often hilarious, appearances together on Celebrity Gogglebox.

Bez joined Shaun’s next group Black Grape, but left in 1997.

He’s also shone on other reality TV series, including Celebrity Big Brother, which he won in 2005, and an impressive recent stint on Celebrity MasterChef, which was ultimatey won by Paralympian and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Kadeena Cox.

Keep your eyes peeled too as the dancer is set to make a cameo appearance as himself in a February episode of Hollyoaks.

Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday on ITV.
