Jane Danson is the ninth celebrity skater confirmed for a brand new series of Dancing on Ice 2019, which returns to ITV in the New Year.
The Coronation Street actor was announced via a live link up on today’s Loose Women. She joins Gemma Collins, Richard Blackwood, James Jordan, Brian McFadden, Saira Khan, Ryan Sidebottom, Melody Thornton and Mark Little in the line up.
Jane will be getting her skates and sequins on ready to compete alongside eleven other celebrities in the quest for glory, under the watchful eye of the skating legends Torvill and Dean, who head up the judging panel.
Each week the twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers, who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby once again return to present the show.
On joining the show, Jane said “I’ve got a big birthday next month so I’m seeing it as a challenge for the fab 40. I’m just looking forward to it and trying not to think about being damaged. It’s been a bit of a life long dream.”
