Ricky Norwood has been announced as the ninth celebrity to participate in the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice. He exclusively shared this news on Loose Women, expressing his feelings, “Being on the ice! I’m apprehensive about the lifts, especially the headbanger. I’ve got to trust in the process, trust in the training, trust in the trainers.”

Ricky joins the previously revealed line-up, which includes World Champion Boxer Ricky Hatton MBE, actresses Claire Sweeney and Hannah Spearritt, West End star Amber Davies, Olympic Champion and presenter Greg Rutherford MBE, TV personality Miles Nazaire, Gogglebox star Stephen Lustig-Webb, and comedian and writer Lou Sanders.

Dancing on Ice, produced by Lifted Entertainment, will make its return to ITV and ITVX in 2024 with a fresh cast. Twelve celebrities will undertake the ultimate challenge, gliding on the ice each week in a live performance to impress both the panel and viewers at home.

In this sparkling new series, the premier ice show promises even more glitz, glamour, and awe-inspiring performances as the celebrities venture into mastering this perilous discipline. The question remains: who possesses the necessary skills and determination to claim the trophy at the end of the series?
