DANCING On Ice's show stars haven't even taken to the rink for their first live show – yet Jayne Torvill has picked a winner.
The ITV reality show partner, who coaches the acts alongside her Olympic skate partner Christopher Dean, has exclusively opened up on the 2023 show line-up.
The likes of Love Island's Ekin Su and TOWIE's Joey Essex are just some of the names pulling their skates on.
Drag Race star The Vivienne was confirmed for the line-up earlier this year.
The Vivienne, also known as James Lee Williams, is a Welsh drag queen, who won the first series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK in 2019.
We quizzed Jayne, 65, at the ITV Palooza and she flagged The Vivenne as a dark horse.

Speaking about taking on the challenge, The Vivienne said: “I'm beyond excited to announce that I will be competing in Dancing on Ice in 2023!
"This is honestly a dream come true and I can't wait to start training on the ice.
