With a fresh line up of celebri­ties and new- look judg­ing panel – the Class of 2013 is set­tling into a new year of the smash ITV show Danc­ing on Ice.

And some of the pro­gramme’s former con­tes­tants and cham­pi­ons are gear­ing up for an ice spec­tac­u­lar of their own in Peter­bor­ough.

The count­down to Cele­bri- ties on Ice at Peter­bor­ough Arena is now on – with the East of Eng­land Show­ground venue host­ing the first re­gional event of its kind for a se­ries of ex­hil­a­rat­ing and ex­cit­ing shows from Jan­uary 25- 27, com­pered by Christo­pher Big­gins.

With re­hearsals now un­der way, there are just a few short weeks be­fore Pete­bor­ough Arena un­der­goes a ma­jor trans­for­ma­tion which will see the in­stal­la­tion of a spec­tac­u­lar ice rink, some jaw- drop­ping spe­cial ef­fects, glitzy cos­tumes and of course a galaxy of stars for a spec­tacu- lar fam­ily show.

The amaz­ing line up of per­form­ers skat­ing along­side the in­cred­i­ble Rus­sian Ice Stars and Cana­dian pro­fes­sional Colin Ra­tush­niak in­clude; TV per­son­al­ity and 2011 Danc­ing on Ice con­tes­tants Chico; 2007 and 2009 cham­pi­ons – Eng­land rugby hero Kyran Bracken and West End star Ray Quinn – and the won­der­ful Lisa Scott- Lee from Steps.

Kyran ( right) said: “It’s great to see Danc­ing On Ice back on our screens, and brings back some fan­tas­tic mem­o­ries for my­self and the cast.

“Per­son­ally, I’ll be watch- ing the progress of fel­low Rugby player Gareth Thomas through­out the se­ries.

“The re­turn of the TV show gives an added buzz to all of us work­ing on Celebri­ties on Ice and cer­tainly gets the pub­lic talk­ing about ice skat­ing, ice danc­ing and of course, their favourite per­form­ers.”

Celebri­ties on Ice – sup­ported by Heart FMand spon­sored by Anglia Co- op­er­a­tive – runs at the East of Eng­land Show­ground venue from Jan­uary 25- 27.
