We may only just be in October, but ITV’s preparations for Dancing On Ice 2022 are well underway. Last week, it was revealed that Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor was in training for the show—and she’s since confirmed the news with an appearance on Lorraine. Four more contestants have also since been revealed.
Bez on ice
The next contestant to be revealed for Dancing On Ice 2022 was Happy Mondays legend Bez. He’s found a new generation of fans through his popular appearances on Celebrity Gogglebox and is sure to win more hearts as he takes to the ice—although he himself is not convinced of his abilities. He said:
At the moment it’s more like Bambi on Ice, not Dancing On Ice. How I got picked I don’t know because I was absolutely awful at the audition but they must have seen some potential in me! I’m looking forward to learning a new skill and I can’t wait for the Christmas ice rinks again and I can get on there and really show off.
Dancing On Ice 2022 line-up
Next up, Paralympic track and field star Stef Reid is also joining the Dancing On Ice 2022 line-up. Stef lost her right foot in a boating accident when she was 16 and has competed for Team GB in Paralympic long jump and sprint events. She’s also worked as a model and got to the semi-finals of Celebrity Masterchef in 2018.
While not yet officially confirmed, S Club 7 star Rachel Stevens and Paul Gascoigne’s son Regan are also thought to be joining the Dancing On Ice 2022 line-up. Rachel previously finished runner-up on Strictly in 2008 so we know she’s a great dancer. Meanwhile, Regan will be making his reality TV debut, though he’s already got dance experience under his belt.
