ITV have confirmed that the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice will be returning very soon, with a fresh batch of celebrities itching to get their skates on.
The long-running programme has been on our screens since 2006, with This Morning duo Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby as presenters.
Olympic legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be taking their rightful place as head judges on the ice panel, alongside former Strictly Come Dancing pro Oti Mabuse and Diversity frontman Ashley Banjo.
Towards the end of 2022, celebrities including the likes of Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Towie star Joey Essex, and Coronation Street actress Mollie Gallagher were confirmed for the 2023 line-up.
But fans were still waiting for the official premiere date.
Well, the wait is over as the network has revealed that the show will return on Sunday, January 15 at 6.30pm.

Others who will be taking to the rink are West End star Carley Stenson, actress Patsy Palmer, The Wanted singer Siva Kaneswaran, Olympian Nile Wilson and former footballer John Fashanu.
Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK star The Vivienne, comedian Darren Harriot, and Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton complete the line-up for 2023.
The celebrities have been training hard as they prepare to make their debut on the ice, but it hasn’t been smooth sailing according to TV personality Ekin-Su.
Speaking to Daily Star, the reality star opened up on rehearsing with pro partner Brendyn Hatfield.
‘It’s very intense but I’m loving every minute of it,’ she said.
‘My whole body hurts.’
Last year saw Regan Gascoigne and partner Karina Marta beat the likes of former Strictly pro Brendan Cole and singer Kimberly Wyatt to lift the coveted trophy.
Dancing on Ice returns on Sunday January 15 at 6:30pm on ITV and ITVX.
