*Dancing on Ice 2009 was won by Ray Quinn*

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby host as 13 (many would say, unlucky) celebrities get their skates on for the fourth series of Dancing On Ice.

The pressure is on as the stars, and their professional partners, take to the ice rink in an attempt to show that they could be the next Jayne Torvill or Christopher Dean.

The routines will be tough – but not as tough as the panel of judges who’ll be giving their expert opinions on the performances. And, of course, the celebs will be keen to impress the viewers at home who will be voting each week to make sure their favourite star stays in the contest.

One thing’s for sure: all of the stars will be hoping they can make it through all the bumps, knocks, lifts and jumps to make it all the way to the final which last year saw former Hear’Say singer Suzanne Shaw fight off stiff competition from Hollyoaks actor Chris Fountain to be crowned queen of the ice.

So, the big question is, who’s taking part? Well, among those looking to follow in Suzanne’s footsteps this year are ex-EastEnder Todd Carty and fellow soap stars Roxanne Pallett and Gemma Bissix. And braving the ice again after a broken ankle put an end to his dream last year, it’s presenter Michael Underwood.

Fresh from their stint on the Dancing on Ice Christmas Special, legendary ice skating duo Torvill and Dean will be on hand to mentor the stars desperate to skate their way to victory.
