Dancing on Ice is returning in January 2021, despite concerns the close-contact show may not go ahead amid the coronavirus pandemic. ITV confirmed that Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will be back for series 13 in the not too distant future, and although we still have a few months to wait, rumours are circling about the potential new celebrity line-up.

So who will be taking to the ice in the next series of the popular reality show? Find out all of the stars who could be competing...

Billie Faiers

Former TOWIE star Billie is the latest celeb rumoured to be joining the line-up and was reportedly spotted heading to DOI auditions back in July. If she does take to the ice rink in January, she'll be following in former co-star Gemma Collins' footsteps, who competed in 2019 with professional Matt Evers.

Wayne Bridge

No stranger to reality TV, Wayne Bridge – husband to Frankie Bridge – has already enjoyed success on I'm A Celebrity. Now, he's reportedly set to join DOI next year, with his wife – who came second on Strictly in 2014 – already claiming he'll be the one to beat. "Wayne is good at everything he does… annoyingly," she told the Daily Star. "So I’m sure he’ll be great at Dancing on Ice."
