The show is said to have a “fresh look” as it rebrands after several years away from the screens.

A judging line-up has yet to be announced, but latest rumours suggest that Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean could swap their coaching roles for the judges’ seats.
There has been quite a mixture of experts and celebs on the Ice Panel in the past.
Karen Barber, Jason Gardiner, Robin Cousins, Ruthie Henshall and Nicky Slater are often slated as the best experts from previous series.
