On Sunday night we’ll see our first six celebrities competing, and the remaining six will perform their routines the following week. Each couple will be judged by ice skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, as well as Ashley Banjo and Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse who has replaced John Barrowman.
Jayne Torvill has already teased who she’s looking forward to seeing, revealing: “I think there’s probably about five or six so that’s what makes it exciting this year. You’ve got Brendan Cole with his ballroom background, you’ve got Kimberly Wyatt with her choreographic dance background, and because we’ve seen her in training a few times I’ve really noticed that she’s incredibly supple. She’s got really elegant lines and her skating is coming along really well too.”
