There’s a hot lineup of celebrities this year, with the likes of Rebekah Vardy, Billie Faiers, Jason Donovan and Joe-Warren Plant skating onto the ice.

The pros and their partners have been already been training for months on the ice in a bid to be crowned champion.

A source told The Sun: “Everyone is worried to be honest. “They can’t practise and the celebs are nowhere near the standard they usually are.

“There’s people scrambling around backstage with no real idea how it’s going to come together. It’s a bit of a mess!”

Despite this, rules have been put in place to manage the celebrities and their partners during filming.

An ITV spokesperson said: “We have stringent protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of all our contributors and staff which are routinely monitored and updated to reflect the current guidelines.”

Getting ahead of the game, former TOWIE star Billie Faiers wowed fans with some behind-the-scenes footage of her skating.

The Mummy Diaries star reposted footage of herself performing from skating partner Mark Hanretty’s Instagram Stories.

Meanwhile, Emmerdale star Joe-Warren Plant and pro partner Vanessa Baeur have been getting hours of practice under their belts.

This has been followed with reports that Joe has fallen victim to the Dancing On Ice curse.

The star broke up with his girlfriend Nicole and moved in with his mum following a reportedly intense row over the amount of time he’s been spending with his DOI partner Vanessa.

A source told The Sun : “Joe has been staying at his mum’s place in Blackpool after moving out but of course he still has training commitments because the show will be starting very soon.”
