Dancing On Ice line up for 2012

So, long gone is presenter Holly Willoughby (who has also switched channels to present The voice later on this spring), and in her place comes axed morning presenter Christine Bleakley whom will none the less look fabulous thanks, I am sure, to the likes of Angie Smith whom is her resident stylist. Alongside Christine will be the fabulous Phillip Schofield and Olympic winning mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

The line up this year however is not as sparkly. Some fantastic contenders whom will I am sure raise the bar may come in the form of  runner Sébastien Foucan due to his athletic training alongside British alpine ski racer Chemmy Alcott, but aside from Sam Nixon (who entertains my niece weekly on children’s TV) and 1980s Dallas favourite  Charlene Tilton, there is only a handful of soap stars past and present (Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden,  Coronation Street actor Andy Whyment, EastEnders actress Laila Morse, Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter, Jennifer Ellison) alongside 1980s pin-up Chesney Hawkes and childhood actor Corey Feldman whom I recognise… the rest I am either not as interested or afraid I am none the wiser on (Rosemary Conley, Heidi Range, Mark Rhodes, Andy Akinwolere). BUT I will watch in intrepidation as I do love a good ice dance even if they are going forward instead of backwards (that’s you Todd Carty). The spandex and sequins alone are enough to make me believe that somehow this show just may produce a winner worthy of Ray Quinn’s status…

Dancing On Ice starts Sunday on ITV1.
