What time is Dancing on Ice 2018 on tonight and how long is the series on ITV for? Meet the cast, presenters and judges

Dancing on Ice is one of the most nerve jangling reality shows out there.

The ice skating competition has finally returned after four long years of being off our screens for its tenth series.

Both Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean are back at the helm and guiding a new group of celebrities through the moves which defined their careers.

Although there have been a few notable changes – including a revamped judging panel – the series is back with a bang.

But who are the well-known faces? And how long will the series be back for? Ahead of the 2018 final we reveal everything we know so far about the show so far…

Torvill and Dean will return to the hit reality competition

What time is Dancing On Ice on?

Dancing On Ice is keeping to tradition of being on screens every Sunday night on ITV with a 2 hour slot from 6pm .

The new series was perfectly-timed for the post-Christmas comedown when it kicked off on 7 January.

How long is the series on for?

When looking back at previous dates, the highly competitive, and not to mention dangerous, skating contest is expected to last for around 6 weeks, climaxing in March.

So we can expect to see one celebrity crowned the winner by Spring.

How to watch Dancing On Ice live

You can tune into each episode every Sunday night on ITV at 6pm – but if you aren’t at home you can watch live online from ITV Hub on a mobile device.

24 hours after each show, episodes will be added to ITV hub so you can catch up on what you have missed.

Who are the presenters?

Original hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are back on presenting duties for series ten.

After six series Holly was replaced by Christine Bleakley in 2011, who went on to host the show alongside Phil for three more years.

But fans are delighted the This Morning pair have been re-united once again for the revamped show. It means they’ll have to spend weekends as well as weekdays in each others company over the next few weeks.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby announced on This Morning that they would be back on hosting duties.

Phillip said: “I’m often told how much people have missed Dancing on Ice, and with the show so fondly remembered, it’s exciting for us all to now have the chance to breath new life into the show, and of course spending an extra day of the week with Holly is the icing on the cake.”

Holly added: “I’m so excited to be returning to a show that I love so much. Working with Jayne and Chris is always such an honour and it’s even more special as it’s the show that Phil and I first worked on together … it’s full of wonderful memories and I can’t wait to make some new ones.”

Ice skating legends Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean have got a promotion this year from coaches to judges.

Prepare for some insider critique from the pair who famously won gold team for team GB competing in the 1984 Winter Olympics with their Bolero routine.

Revealing the big news on This Morning, Torvill said: “Chris and I are going to be head judges this time. We’re nervous and excited as we’ve never been judges before.”

Mr Nasty is back!

Long-standing judge and self-certified Mr Nasty, Jason Gardiner has returned to strike fear into the very hearts of the contestants.

As if dancing on ice live in front of millions wasn’t scary enough, the celebrities have to face the wrath of Jase who once compared Sharron Davis to “faecal matter before it’s flushed.”


“We have seen some remarkable people come through Dancing on Ice and to see that journey is amazing,” Jason said at his unveiling, in a rare moment of nicety.

Injecting some fresh blood into the judging panel this year is Britain’s Got Talent Winner Ashley Banjo.

The Diversity star broke the news live on Loose Women, telling the panel he couldn’t wait to get started.

“This show feels like it’s been embedded into society. I was really excited to be part of the revamp,” he said.

Ashley also addressed criticism that he’s not a trained ice skater himself, saying: “By no means am I professional skater. But there are so many other elements involved.”

Having previously judged hopefuls on Got To Dance, Ashley is well used to dishing out constructive criticism.

Who is the commentator?

Matt Chapman commentated on the first show, but came in for heavy criticism and has returned to ITV’s horseracing coverage.

ITV announced he would be replaced by talkSPORT presenter Sam Matterface .
