DANCING On Ice 2024's pro skater line up has been revealed – with two stars making a shock return after Matt Evers quit the show.
The ITV competition – which returns to our screens early next year – has a bunch of familiar faces returning, as well as some new ones joining the cast.
Vanessa Bauer, Colin Grafton, Mark Hanretty, Brendyn Hatfield, Sylvain Longchambon and Tippy Packard will be back on the rink to show off their best moves.
They will be joined by Andy Buchanan and Robin Johnstone, who didn't appear on the show last year, but joined the cast when Dancing On Ice started in 2013.
As well as some old faces returning, there will be some new skaters ready to coach their celebrity partners.
Amani Fancy, who is a two time British national champion, certainly has the expertise after taking part in the German version of the programme.

Over the weekend The Sun revealed that Matt Evers quit the ITV show after 17 years.
In a statement, he said: “I have some news to share. I knew this day would come at some point but I won’t be returning to Dancing on Ice this series.
“After 15 series of the show it was sadly time to hang up the skates for now. I have loved every minute of it (honestly!)
“I’ve had some incredible partners over the years and we have created some fantastic TV moments!
“I mean who can forget that fall from Gemma, or the wardrobe malfunction from Pamela!”
He added: “And I was honoured to make history with H as the first ever UK same sex televised partnership.
“To all my leading ladies (and H) it was a pleasure! Bonnie Langford, Lara Bingle/Worthington (Australian Dancing on Ice), Lisa Scott Lee, Suzanne Shaw, Zoe Salmon, Heather Mills, Denise Welch, Jorgie Porter, Pamela Anderson, Candice Brown, Gemma Collins, Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Denise Van Outen, Faye Brooks, Sally Dynevor and Patsy Palmer.
“I’ll miss each and everyone on the show, in front and behind the camera – and all of you the fans too!
“But of course I’ll be watching and commenting – which I can now be totally 100 per cent honest about so watch out – haha!
“I’m writing this from the West Coast of the US in sunny Los Angeles – but I’ll definitely be back in the UK very soon so watch this space!
“This isn’t a goodbye but a ‘see you very soon.’”
Alexnadra Schauman and Łukasz Różycki are also not going to take part in Dancing on Ice 2024.
The celebrities taking part is still unknown, however Gogglebox's Stephen Lustig-Webb was revealed earlier this month.
