First Dancing On Ice 2022 contestant confirmed as Coronation Street’s Sally Dynevor

Dancing On Ice is gearing up to return in January – and will hopefully will be a little less chaotic than 2020 after hoards of contestants were forced to quit

Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor has been confirmed as the first contestant on Dancing On Ice.

Lorraine Kelly announced the news on the show today as the 58-year-old appeared via video link.

And it looks like she’s already practicing hard ahead of the competition as she was spotted looking nervous on the ice.

In exclusive pictures obtained by the Sunday Mirror, the Corrie star can be seen tentatively taking to the ice alongside skater Stephen Pickavance.

The pair can be seen using an ice hockey stick – which appears to be a tool to help Sally work on her balance as she skates -with Stephen – who has been a coach on Dancing on Ice for over 10 series – giving the actress directions.

It comes after it was confirmed last night that John Barrowman won’t be appearing as a judge on the new series.

The star is instead being lined up for the channels All Star Musicals specials, which he is said to be “thrilled about”.

An ITV spokesman told The Mirror: “We thank John Barrowman for two brilliant years on the Dancing on Ice panel and are pleased to be working with him again as host of the forthcoming All Star Musicals specials.”

A spokesman for John added: “John is thrilled to be returning to work for ITV as host on the new All Star Musicals.”
