One person has already predicted who will be Nile’s pro partner.

They said: “Vanessa’s partner no doubt! It’s about time you gave her a partner who isn’t a trained dancer or under 25,” seemingly referring to Vanessa Bauer.

Who else is doing the show?

So far former EastEnders actress Patsy, reality star Ekin-Su and former footballer John Fashanu have also been announced for the new series.

Earlier this week, Patsy said on This Morning: “Out of all the things that came through at that time, this is the one that I had to really think about.

“Obviously I want to challenge myself and get out of my comfort zone. I just thought I’ll just go for it. I do like ice skating, but I’m not an ice skater!”

Meanwhile, John said: “I’m so excited to be a part of Dancing on Ice! I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise to people that I’m very competitive – I am definitely in it to win it.

“And this may be one of the scariest things I’ve ever signed up for but I couldn’t be more ready for the challenge.”

On Thursday, Ekin-Su was announced as a contestant as she said in a video message on GMB: “I will be doing this year’s Dancing On Ice.
