This means MORE Holly and Phil!

After a hugely successful return to our TV screens after four long years away, Dancing On Ice has been given the green light for another series in 2019. Yay!

With the reunion of original presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the series has seen viewers fall in love with skating all over again.


The rebooted programme has also seen a new judging line-up, consisting of former Olympic champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean – who previously acted as coaches – returning panellist Jason Gardiner and newcomer Ashley Banjo.
