A first glimpse at the contestants with their pro skating partners is expected to be announced soon as the first live show date approaches.

It will see Sylvain Longchambon return to the cast for the first time since 2019 as one of the show's best known pro skaters - in part, for his dating history which included a relationship with partner Jennifer Metcalfe, which ended in controversy when he got together with another skating partner in 2013, his now wife Samia Ghadie who he has a son with.

Joining Longchambon in the pro cast are Vicky Ogden, Klabera Komini, Olivia Smart, Matt Evers, Alexandra Schauman and her husband Łukasz Różycki, Mark Hanretty, Brendyn Hatfield, Vanessa Bauer, Tippy Packard and Colin Grafton.

Dancing On Ice, which usually airs on ITV1 on Sunday evenings, is yet to confirm its return date.

The show's reigning champions are dancer Regan Gascoigne and his pro partner Karina Manta, who is not returning this series.
