British boxing legend Ricky Hatton MBE has been officially confirmed as the first celebrity to participate in the upcoming season of Dancing on Ice.

Revealing the news exclusively on This Morning Ricky said: ”If I can hold my nerve in the boxing ring I should be able to hold my nerve in the ice rink. I like setting new challenges and keeping myself busy!”

Dancing on Ice, produced and created by Lifted Entertainment, is set to make its return to both ITV and ITVX in 2024 with a fresh lineup.
