Dancing On Ice soon returns to our screens, with a new set of contestants ready to take on the ‘greatest show on ice’ – but when will does it start on ITV?
The panel will look slightly different this year, with Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse taking over from John Barrowman after his exit from the show.
Last year’s series – won by Capital FM’s Sonny Jay – was plagued by injuries and massively affected by Covid, but fans will be hoping to see everything run more smoothly in 2022.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the brand-new series.
When does Dancing on Ice start and how long does it run?
There’s not at all long to wait as it begins at 6.30pm on Sunday night (January 16), with the first half of the contestants taking to the rink with their professional partners.
Next weekend’s show will see the remaining six perform for the first time before one is due to be eliminated.
The show will last for 10 weeks in total, expected to finish on March 20, when another celebrity will be crowned the winner.
Fans will remember last year’s series was cut short after both of the show’s reserve stars were both brought on to compete.
GB gymnast Amy Tinkler and TV presenter Matt Richardson took to the ice, with the latter being voted out after his first week.
Who are the contestants for 2022?
The show announced its line-up back in October, giving the celebs plenty of time to train and become masters on the ice.
Pussycat Dolls member Kimberley Wyatt, S Club 7’s Rachel Stevens and TV presenter Ria Hebden will also be turning their talents to the ice.
Elsewhere, three new skaters will be joining the batch of professionals for 2022, after it was announced that Vicky Ogden, Hamish Gaman and Klabera Komini would not be returning for the fourteenth series.
Colin Grafton, Morgan Swales and Tippy Packard take their place, with Tippy having received Kye as a celebrity partner, whilst the other two newcomers will appear in the professional group routines.
Dancing on Ice begins Sunday, January 16 at 6.30pm on ITV.
