Dancing On Ice is set to return to our screens, and there are two Londoners taking part.
The fourteenth series of the show will return to ITV on Sunday, January 16.
Despite the hardships faced by last year’s show with injuries and positive Covid-19 tests, the long-running show lived up to expectations with Capital FM’s Sonny Jay along with partner Angela Egan lifted the trophy, after pipping Matt Evers and Faye Brookes to win.
The series will see celebrities team up with professional skaters, skating live each week in a bid to impress the judges, and of course the viewers at home who play a massive part in the eventual winners.
A great line-up, with a new judge, it looks to be a promising series.
Legendary skating duo Christopher Dean and Jane Torvill will return, alongside returning judge Ashley Banjo and they will be joined by new judge Oti Mabuse, who is most known for her involvement with Strictly Come Dancing.
Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield will host the show.
Twelve celebrities will take to the ice, and two of them are from London.
They are Olympian Kye Whyte, and pop star Rachel Stevens.
Stephens is a pop star, most known for being in the band S Club 7.
She was in the band from 1999 until 2003, before embarking on a solo music career.
After leaving S Club 7, she released her first solo album ‘Funky Dory’ which peaked at number nine on the UK album chart.
As well as releasing albums since, Stephens has appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and was also a voice coach on the fourth season of RTE’s The Voice of Ireland.
She was also part of the S club 7 reunion tour, which happened in 2015.
He has also faced hardship to get to where he is now, with the 22-year-old involved in a crash shortly after joining the GB cycling team and being placed into an induced coma.
