Candice Brown joins Dancing on Ice

The ‘Great British Bake Off’ champion – who was crowned the winner of the baking series last year – has become the fifth celebrity to sign up to the reboot of the skating series and she can’t wait to get started on the rink because she loves a challenge.

Taking to her Twitter account on Wednesday (01.11.17), she said alongside her official promo shot: “No more secrets!!! From baker to skater! So excited and nervous to get started @dancingonice Love a challenge!!! #DancingOnIce @ITV (sic)”

However, the 32-year-old lipstick lover will certainly have to put in some hard work during training if she wants to progress in the competition as she’ll go up against rugby hunk Max Evans, 33, who was announced as the sixth star to take part in the show.

Bosses of the skating show have kept details of the forthcoming series under wraps, but, so far, it’s known that Love Island’s Kem Cetinay, Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent, Jake Quickenden and Bucks Fizz’s Cheryl Baker have also signed up.

More celebrities will be announced in due course but, for now, it’s been confirmed that acid-tongue Australian Jason Gardiner has reclaimed his position on the judging panel alongside Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean – who previously mentored the contestants but have now switched positions – and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo.

And it looks like there will be some animosity on the panel as Ashley is adamant he won’t allow Jason to “bully” him and will give as good as he gets.He said: “I can imagine us clashing. Do I look like I can be bullied? No chance. I’m going to have to start thinking of witty one-liners. Jason is very good at that. He is the king of the one-liners, let’s hope he’s not lost it.”
