As Strictly Come Dancing prepares to bring us into winter television season, rumours for the celebrity line up on Dancing On Ice have set tongues wagging.

Speculation has been coming in thick and fast as bosses over at the ice-skating show have been teasing fans with Instagram posts. So far only Maura Higgins and Michael Barrymore have confirmed their place in the line-up.

The ITV show, which returned from a four-year hiatus in 2018 and continued this year, will be back on our screens in the New Year.

As per usual the annual attempts at trying to crack the codes in the Instagram clues has begun.

Here are the clues so far ...

For the first post, the show said: “ Big hair, don't care? We wonder who this celeb will be taking to the ice very soon...”

“We've got stars in our eyes over this celeb... Or in our jacket pockets?” the second post teased.

The third one: “We wonder if this celeb will be able to score big on the ice... “

Which celebrities are rumoured to be in the line-up?

Amber Gill


Gill was rumoured to be joining the show's line-up after winning Love Island this summer. She would be the third islander to step onto the rink, with Kem Cetinay taking part in 2018 and Wes Nelson following in his footsteps this year.
