Returning to ITV in January 2018, a rumoured line-up has been revealed by The Sun:

Loose (literally) Woman, Katie Price
Corrie queen, Anthony Cotton
Retired cricketer, Ebony Rainford-Brent
Diana's psychic, Sally Morgan
Olympian, Amber Hill
Annoying TV woman, Saira Khan
Corrie whinger, Katie McGlynn
WAG, Alex Gerrard
Rugby player, Max Evans
CBBC presenter, Toby Anstis
Diana's rock, Paul Burrell
Comedian (who...?), Stephen Bailey
Wine expert (wtf), Olly Smith

Bake Off's Candice has confirmed she's not doing it. I doubt they'll have two Corrie stars either, so hopefully Anthony Cotton breaks his leg.

I hope Jason Gardiner comes back, the nasty bitch.

Holly and Phil have been confirmed as the hosts, with Torvill and Dean moving into judging roles. Apparently up to 50 celebrities are being 'auditioned' to take part in the final line-up.

The line-up was announced last month and it's typically ITV...

Donna Air (Byker Grove), Kem Cetinay (Love Island), Max Evans (rugby), Perri Shakes-Drayton (athlete), Candice Brown (Bake Off), Jake Quickenden (X Factor/IAC), Lemar (singer), Alex Beresford (weather), Stephanie Waring (Hollyoaks), Antony Cotton (Corrie), Cheryl Baker (Bucks Fizz), Brooke Vincent (Corrie).

I'm surprised they don't have an Emmerdale, yet have two Corrie! Does Jake Quickenden have secrets on ITV or something?! He gets on everything!

I despise Antony Cotton, he's such a diva and thinks he's a national treasure. Sadly he wasn't as bad as I'd hoped, I'd like him to fall ASAP!

The new set is good but I don't think Ashley Banjo sits properly on the panel, they should have somebody with experience in more traditional dance styles maybe.

Todd Carty's performance from a few years back was outstanding. :lol:

It was ridiculous to pad six skaters out across two hours.

Poor Candice, from winner to potentially first out - different audiences and disciplines I guess!

Annoyingly, Jake and Kem had the most potential it seems. Lets hope some of next week's girls are good, although Perrie was OK.

The first episode was SO good! :D Perri was my favourite and I think she has a lot of potential too, similarly to Beth.

Kem and Jake were also very good but I don't like either. Candice in the bottom was the right decision.

Also, I never have and never will understand why people prefer Strictly Come Dancing...

Do you not think DOI is cheap and tacky compared to Strictly, which definitely has more class and is put together more professionally? Also the judging panel on DOI had less personality and warmth than a dead cod.

Also I find the dances on DOI much more clunky, it's harder to hide how terrible you are. Noted, it is a tougher challenge to master the skating but I think the dancing element suffers massively as a result.

I find them equally as tacky :lol: But there's a certain thrill you get from DOI over Strictly. I guess it's the added difficulty of skating on the ice that does it for me.

I agree. More can go wrong on DOI and I find that exciting. I like watching them get better and better.

And to add to that, with strictly. A lot have previous experience where as with this they never have any experience so they are truly starting out as beginners

This show has no atmosphere and some good skaters are leaving in favour of dross. There's not enough good skaters, at this rate it'll be Cheryl and Antony in the final.
