The Dancing On Ice 2014 lineup has now been officially named by ITV, with a 14 strong all star cast of celebs taking to the ice one more time.
The contestant lineup for this best-of-the-best series will feature six of the shows eight former winners. ITV have also made sure to sign-up at least one celeb from each of the eight previous DOI seasons, including some of the shows less talented skaters.
So here’s the full list of Who’s on Dancing on Ice 2014:
Bonnie Langford – 2006 – 3rd Place
David Seaman – 2006 – 4th Place
Kyran Bracken – 2007 – 1st Place
Suzanne Shaw – 2008 – 1st Place
Zaraah Abrahams – 2008 – 3rd Place
Gareth Gates – 2008 – 4th Place
Ray Quinn – 2009 – 1st Place
Todd Carty – 2009 – 9th Place
Hayley Tamaddon – 2010 – 1st Place
Gary Lucy – 2010 – 2nd Place
Sam Attwater – 2011 – 1st Place
Jorgie Porter – 2012 – 2nd Place
Beth Tweddle – 2013 – 1st Place
Joe Pasquale – 2013 – 6th Place
Going into this ninth and final series in 2014, gymnast Beth Tweddle will no doubt be one of the favorites to win, having only taken her title earlier this year. The only former winners who won’t be taking part this time are 2012 winner Matthew Wolfenden and series one champ Gaynor Faye.
With six former winners and two runners up in the cast, this final series which kicks off in January, promises to provide the highest standard of celebrity ice skating ever seen on the telly. Plus with the likes of Joe Pasquale and Todd Carty joining the lineup, the high level of competition should occasionally get broken up by the odd comedy moment. What price I wonder for Mr Carty to win it all?
Christine Bleakley and Phillip Schofield will again be on hand to host proceedings, and this time to crown the Dancing On Ice champion of champions.
Making up the judging lineup, this years ice panel with feature Robin Cousins, Karen Barber, Ashley Roberts and Jason Gardiner.
