Dancing on Ice has begun dropping some clues about who will be part of its 2020 celebrity line-up.

The ITV show's official Twitter account recently announced that it would be teasing the identity of the new series' contestants – and today (September 18) the ice skating competition hinted at who two of those stars are.

The first clue shared is an image of the back of someone's head, showing off their distinctively large hairstyle. The post is accompanied by the words: "Big hair, don't care? We wonder who this celeb will be taking to the ice very soon..."

Meanwhile, the second clue provided via social media featured an image of what appears to be an I'm A Celebrity Bushtucker Trial star tucked in man's jacket pocket.

The post reads: "We've got stars in our eyes over this celeb... Or in our jacket pockets?"

So who could the two mystery stars be? The clues are rather vague, but what seems certain is that one of them is a former I'm A Celebrity contestant.

If so, they'll be joined up by another former campmate in John Barrowman, who was recently confirmed as Dancing On Ice's new judge.

The former Doctor Who and Torchwood star will be replacing Jason Gardiner and joining the line-up alongside head judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean and choreographer Ashley Banjo.

    Tearful Ghislaine Maxwell denied bail by US court which rules her 'definition of flight risk'

    Ghisaine Maxwell will spend the next year in prison after she was denied bail by a US judge who heard she was a “predator and a monster” from whom victims needed protecting. Ms Maxwell, a longtime associate of disgraced late financier Jeffrey Epstein, wiped away tears on Tuesday as she pleaded not guilty at a New York court to charges of luring girls for him to sexually abuse. Ms Maxwell, 58, appeared via video link before US District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan, who agreed with the prosecution that the British heiress was the “definition of a flight risk” due to her international connections, high-profile friends and vast hidden wealth. The daughter of media magnate Robert Maxwell is facing six criminal charges, including four related to transporting minors for illegal sexual acts and two of perjury. She will remain at the federal Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn until her trial starts on July 12, 2021. In ruling, Ms Nathan said the risk of Ms Maxwell fleeing was “too great" to mitigate.

Cases have been rising precipitously throughout the country: Ohio, Louisiana, and Tennessee have all averaged more than 1,000 new cases per day. Georgia has averaged more than 3,000 per day. California is over 8,000. Texas and Florida are both over 9,000. And Florida in particular appears to be accelerating: on Sunday it reported 15,300 new cases in one day, a record for any state in the US, and on Monday it was almost 13,000.

    Hair Salons Have Reopened, but Is It Safe to Get Your Hair Done?

    Amid the coronavirus pandemic, phased reopenings are now underway in all 50 states. While governors manage restrictions in their respective states, mandates and safety precautions get as granular as individual cities and counties, too. The earliest states to reopen included Georgia and Alaska, soon followed by Texas, and Florida. In many cases, businesses in the beauty service industry were among the first to reopen their doors - but not without several new precautions to follow. From required masks to social distancing when possible to, in some cases, not using blow dryers, the structure of hair appointments is going to look a little different for the time being. Still, you may wonder if and when it's truly safe to get back in the chair. Ahead, we tapped two pros, Matrix stylists Michelle O'Connor in south Florida and Eric Vaughn in Houston, to find out.

    England's coronavirus infection rate was significantly reduced before lockdown eased, study finds

    The rate of coronavirus infection in England was significantly reduced in the month before lockdown restrictions were lifted, a new study has found. According to the new research from Imperial College London, the rate of infection throughout the country was halving every eight to nine days during May. There were on average 13 positive cases for every 10,000 people, with an overall reproduction number of 0.57 - lower than previously reported. For the study, researchers tested more than 120,000 volunteers aged over five years across the country for Covid-19. About 69 per cent of those who tested positive reported no symptoms on the day of the test or the previous week, though they may have developed symptoms later. The report provides an insight into who was infected with the virus between May 1 and June 1, comparing geography, age, sex, ethnicity, key worker status and symptoms. The regional R rate in May can be seen on this graph below, from May 14.

    Trump ends Hong Kong’s special status, penalizes China; Beijing vows to retaliate

    US President Donald Trump on Tuesday stripped Hong Kong of preferential trade treatment and authorized sanctions on banks over China’s clampdown in the financial hub, infuriating Beijing which vowed to retaliate.In a discursive news conference dominated by attacks on his domestic rivals, Trump declared himself to be the toughest president ever on China, a country he is increasingly positioning as his nemesis ahead of November elections.Trump announced that he had issued an executive order on Hong Kong as he predicted decline for the restless city, on which Beijing recently imposed a tough new security law.“Hong Kong will now be treated the same as mainland China – no special privileges, no special economic treatment and no export of sensitive technologies,” Trump said in the White House Rose Garden.“Their freedom has been taken away; their rights have been taken away,” Trump added.“And with it goes Hong Kong, in my opinion, because it will no longer be able to compete with free markets. A lot of people will be leaving Hong Kong.”Trump also said he had signed into law the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, which authorises sanctions against Chinese officials and Hong Kong police seen as infringing on the city’s autonomy – and, crucially, any banks that make significant transactions with them.Lawmakers hope the new law will force all but provincial Chinese banks to choose between abetting Beijing’s efforts in Hong Kong, or being able to conduct transactions in US dollars and operate in the world’s largest economy.“This law gives my administration powerful new tools to hold responsible the individuals and the entities involved in extinguishing Hong Kong’s freedom,” Trump said.China on Wednesday vowed to retaliate, saying the Hong Kong Autonomy Act “maliciously slanders” its legislation in Hong Kong.“China will make necessary responses to protect its legitimate interests, and impose sanctions on relevant US personnel and entities,” the Chinese foreign ministry said.‘Swift rebuke’The White House acknowledged concerns that the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, a tougher follow-up to a law last year, limits the president’s leeway to waive sanctions.But the act enjoyed overwhelming bipartisan support, meaning Congress could likely override any presidential veto.“Today, the United States made clear to China that it cannot continue its assault on freedom and human rights in Hong Kong without severe repercussions,” said Senator Chris Van Hollen, a Democrat who spearheaded the law.“The Chinese government’s aggression merits this swift rebuke,” he said.But Julia Friedlander, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council think tank, said “Hong Kong will suffer and China will likely gain” from the move.She said the US action will have a “devastating impact on Hong Kong as the financial gateway to Western markets” while raising the profile of mainland Chinese markets for foreign firms and governments looking to bankroll global supply chains out of Asia.Beijing defied international warnings by imposing the security law, which criminalises subversion and other offences in Hong Kong, to which it promised autonomy before Britain handed the territory back in 1997.The law has sent a chill through the financial hub, which last year saw massive and sometimes destructive pro-democracy protests.China has quickly put the law to use, on Monday warning that a primary among pro-democracy parties in which 600,000 Hong Kongers participated was a “serious provocation.”Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hailed the primary and called for Hong Kong’s legislative elections due in September to be “equally free and fair.”Trump has stepped up pressure on China on multiple fronts, especially on the coronavirus pandemic, news of which Beijing suppressed when the illness first emerged in Wuhan.Critics both at home and abroad accuse Trump of seeking to divert attention from criticism of his handling of Covid-19 in the United States, which has suffered by far the highest death toll of any country.On Monday, Pompeo also stepped up the tone on the dispute-rife South China Sea, declaring most of Beijing’s claims to be illegal.The Trump administration last week imposed sanctions on senior Chinese officials over the incarceration of more than one million Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims.(AFP)
