Dancing On Ice first look as Love Island, Towie and EastEnders stars seen with their pro partners

DANCING On Ice’s stars have been seen for the first time – with their skating partners.

The celebs – a mix of reality titans, soap stars, sportspeople and singers – are shown posing for their official pictures and with their pro partners.

Here, we take a look at how DOI’s 2023 pairings look together as they prepare to take to the ice…

This is surely the Dancing on Ice pairing to beat – with both of these stars having performed at the Olympics.

Former Team GB gymnast Nile, 26, was a medal-winner at the 2016 Rio Games – so he should be able to pull off some impressive moves.

And three-time Spanish national champ Olivia, 25, competed in ice-dancing at the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Should Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield just hand these two the trophy now?

Welsh drag queen The Vivienne is paired with American skater and model Colin.

The 30-year-old star – also known as James Lee Williams – won the first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in 2019.

Speaking about taking on the challenge The Vivienne said: “This is honestly a dream come true.”

Bookies reckon the pair could do well – naming them as fourth favourites out of the 11-strong line-up.

Mollie Gallagher & Sylvain Longchambon

French skater Sylvain, 42, is well used to coaching Coronation Street stars on Dancing on Ice.

He trained Maria Connor star Samia Ghadie in 2015 and, well, her name is now Samia Longchambon.

Mollie, 24, who plays Roy Cropper’s niece Nina, also follows  Sally Dynevor and Faye Brookes in appearing on the skating show.

Speaking about her co-stars she told Lorraine Kelly she was relying on them, insisting: “I’ll be getting all the tips I can because I’m going to need it.”

Michelle was thrilled to be paired with Łukasz saying: “I had my fingers and toes crossed for this man. I’m honoured to be skating with him for the show.”

The show marks the 43-year-old star’s big return to TV after her battle with booze and drugs.

She told Lorraine Kelly: “I’ve always wanted to do it, but I knew I wouldn’t have been able to complete anything because of how my body was.

“So I’m glad I didn’t get it back then. Now I’m able to commit.”

Darren Harriott & Tippy Packard

Comedian Darren, 34, who is famous for shows including Love Island: Aftersun, has already made headlines with Tippy Packard.

He suffered an accident on the rink while rehearsing with her and was left with whiplash and unable to turn his head or lift one arm.

However, he promised fans a fiery routine when it comes to the live shows branding their partnership “spice on ice”.

Bookies have marked the pair as outsiders to win – but they could surprise us all yet.

The Wanted pin-up Siva, 34, is paired with Klabera Komini, 29, who is returning to the show.

The American ice dancer and fitness trainer was previously matched with Colin Jackson on Dancing on Ice and came third.

Siva explained late Wanted bandmate Tom Parker was his inspiration for taking to the ice.

He said: “He taught me so much about life and not to be afraid – that’s one of the reasons I am doing the show.”

She’s already won Love Island – with help from Davide Sanclimenti – but experts think Ekin-Su could be a contender for the Dancing on Ice title too.

However, there’s one thing counting against them – the 28-year-old’s jam-packed work life after the villa.

American Brendyn, 36, told The Sun: “Her schedules been crazy, so the time we’ve had has been limited – but the time we have had has been good.

“She does pick it up quick, she’s got some real talent.”

Joey Essex & Vanessa Bauer

Romance rumours between Towie loverman Joey, 32, and Dancing on Ice favourite Vanessa began practically on day one.

The Sun told how he was quickly infatuated by Vanessa after being paired with her on the show.

While many predicted some kind of ice-melting partnership, Vanessa, 26, put those ideas firmly in the deep freeze.

The German dancer and acrobat said: “We are just skating partners.”

Dancing on Ice favourite Alexandra has her work cut out with football legend John – at least according to the bookies.

Many tip him as the 2023 star least likely to end up winning alongside the Finnish skater, 42.

John even looked nervous when he was seen trying out a jump in training in late November.

But you should never bet against a sportsman and the 60-year-old’s competitive spirit should help him no end.

Carley Stenson & Mark Hanretty

Hollyoaks star Carley is dancing with Scottish professional ice dancer Mark Hanretty, 37.

She told fans: “To say ‘I’m buzzin’ is an understatement! Bring it on partner.”

The 40-year-old Steph Cunningham actress should get a boost in the contest from her West End stage performances.

And if that fails, husband Danny Mac, who played Dodger in Hollyoaks and was a finalist on Strictly, might be able to offer some tips.

EastEnders' Bianca actress Patsy is paired with veteran pro Matt

Patsy Palmer & Matt Evers

EastEnders icon Patsy is paired with Dancing on Ice royalty in Matt Evers, who famously coached Gemma Collins.

Slightly confusingly Brit Patsy is based in America, while Matt, who is American, only meets up with the Bianca Jackson actress when she’s in the UK.

Patsy, 50, flew over from Malibu last year, uniting with her Dancing On Ice co-stars for the first time at London’s Alexandra Palace.
