The celebrities are getting their skates on as Dancing On Ice returns for its 2019 series.
The show kicks off on ITV on Sunday night, with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby once again hosting – and the stars hoping to impress skating legends Torvill and Dean as well as fellow panelists Ashley Banjo and newcomer Oti Mabuse.
Once again the skating couples will be taking to the show’s purpose built ice rink in their bid to be crowned series champion.
But just where is the whole thing filmed? Here’s what you need to know…
Where is Dancing On Ice filmed?
Since its return in 2018 Dancing On Ice has moved out to Hertfordshire, and is filmed on a specially constructed rink at RAF Bovingdon, near Hemel Hempstead.
The airfield is no stranger to TV and film, having also played host to such blockbusters as Rogue One, as well as Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – and it’s also home to The Masked Singer.
Phillip Schofield said of the new set in 2018 when the show returned: ‘Yes it has ice in the centre of it and there is a competition but it will look and feel different.’
‘There is a new studio, Jayne and Chris are on the panel and that frees up our professional dancers to choreograph.’
Sunday night’s show will see the first six of this year’s celebrities make their skating debut – with the next six to follow next week.
The first elimination of the series will take place next weekend.
Dancing On Ice is on ITV on Sunday night at 6.30pm.
