When does Dancing on Ice 2022 start?

ITV have confirmed that Dancing on Ice will be back on our screens for a 14th series in 2022, with the first show on Sunday 16th February and then continuing on each following Sunday for the remainder of the series.

Who are the Dancing on Ice 2022 contestants and their professional partners?

The celebrity line-up for the new series of Dancing on Ice is now finalised, with all 12 contestants having now been confirmed for the show.

Regan Gascoigne, son of former England international footballer Paul Gascoigne, has signed up for the show. Regan is a trained dancer so may well have an advantage over his rivals, explaining his position as favourite to win the show, with odds of 11/4. He is partnered with Karina Manta, an American former competitive ice dancer and will dance on Week 2’s show.

Brendan Cole, a former professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, is unsurprisingly favoured in the betting market with odds of 3/1 to win the series. He was the first to perform on the opening show of the new series and scored an impressive score of 30.5. Feedback from the judges was positive, with praise going to partner Vanessa Bauer – a former cruise line performer and skater – for incorporating Brendan’s dance style into the routine. Vanessa has been on the show since 2017, when she partnered singer Jake Quickenden to victory.

Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt has been paired up with professional Mark Hanretty. Her performance on the first episode puts her in good stead to win the show, with odds of 3/1 making her currently the joint second favourite alongside Brendan. Mark is yet to taste victory on the show, but it looks possible this year, with Kimberly’s dancing ability, flexibility and her taste for competition, after winning the Celebrity Master Chef series in 2015. Her routine last weekend to ‘What About Us’ by P!nk scored a high 30.0.

Also joining the show is Love Island star Liberty Poole, who will be taking to the ice just a few months on from enjoying the sun in the Love Island villa. She is the fourth favourite to win the show with odds of 15/2. The 22-year-old is reportedly looking forward to learning as much as she can from partner Joe Johnson, who is originally from Colorado. Liberty is due to dance next weekend.

Another singer with a background in dance is former S Club 7 star Rachel Stevens, who is yet to dance on the ice. She confirmed her appearance on the show on ‘This Morning’. The question of whether she can translate her dance moves on stage to the ice rink remains, with her odds of winning the show at 10/1. Rachel is paired with 34-year-old Brendyn Hatfield. The 2022 series will be Brendyn’s third year in the competition, after dancing with Lady Leshurr last year.

Connor Ball is another showbiz name, as a member of pop rock band The Vamps. Connor is joint-sixth in the market to be crowned Ice King, with odds of 10/1 and is partnered with Alexandra Schauman, who first appeared on Dancing on Ice in 2010. Alexandra has a history of winning, having won with James Jordan in 2019, and will undoubtedly take Connor far in the competition. Connor will dance in week 2’s show.

BMX rider Kye Whyte confirmed his appearance on ‘Newsround’ where he revealed he has roller-skating experience but is new to ice skating. Despite this sporting discipline, he is has plummeted to seventh in the outright winner betting market with odds of 12/1. Kye is paired with professional and three-time Hong Kong National Champion, Tippy Packard. The pair danced in Week 1’s show to ‘Bonkers’ by Dizzy Rascal, and scored 24.0 from the judges. Judge, Ashley Banjo, was keen to see him keep working on the basics, whilst working on his performance element.

With her sporting background, track and field Paralympic athlete Stefanie Reid may be a contestant to watch out for, although at the moment she only has odds of 20/1 to win the competition. Stefanie is partnered with Andy Buchanan, who is well versed in the world of ice skating. Andy, originally from Canada, has seven titles as Western Canadian Champion in a variety of disciplines. Stephanie will dance for the first time on Week 2’s show.

Bez of Happy Mondays fame was the second celebrity to be a confirmed appearance on the show, and also made his announcement on ‘This Morning’. Despite Bez’ accurate admission of him being more like “Bambi on Ice” than Dancing on Ice and is alongside Sally Dynevor with odds of 20/1 to win the show. Bez is partnered with Angela Egan; a 34-year-old ice skater from Scotland. The pair definitely added entertainment value to their performance last Sunday, with a routine to ‘Step On’ by his own band, Happy Mondays. Unfortunately Bez was at the bottom of the leader board with 12.5 points.

Elsewhere, rugby player Ben Foden will also be joining this year’s line-up. The former England international has reality TV experience, having previously competed on The X Factor: Celebrity, and is currently a 25/1 shot to win the show. He is partnered with Robin Johnstone, who first appeared on the show in 2013. Yet to dance, Ben will make his appearance on Week 2’s show.

Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster in the soap, was the first contestant to sign up, with the news announced on ‘Lorraine’. Sally has admitted she will be new to the ice and after a nervous start in Week 1’s show, her odds have since improved to 33/1. Sally will certainly be taken through her paces in this year’s competition, as she’s partnered with Matt Evers; an American skater and former U.S. Junior Champion. The pair scored 23.0 points dancing to ‘She’s Always A Woman’ by Billy Joel.

Despite a decent performance on Sunday night, Ria Hebden brings up the bottom of the market with odds of 100/1 to win the show this year. Her and partner Lukasz danced to ‘Treat People With Kindness’ by Harry Styles, and scored 24.5 points. The entertainment presenter, who confirmed her appearance on ‘Lorraine’, admits the experience could be a little “scary”. Ria’s partner was late to be revealed but was confirmed as Lukasz Rozycki, who was first to be voted off with partner Myleene Klass in last year’s series.

Who are the Dancing on Ice 2022 hosts and judges?

ITV’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will be returning to take up their roles as hosts this season. Schofield has presented every series to date, usually alongside Willoughby.

The judges’ panel has been confirmed to contain ice-skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. Last year they were joined by Ashley Banjo who will make another series appearance. Oti Mabuse, known for her appearances on Strictly Come Dancing will be replacing John Barrowman as the fourth judge, undoubtedly bringing new eyes and a certain flare to the judging panel.
