Bunton's recent venture into TV presenting and Gardiner's controversial comments about contestants on this year's show led to speculation that the pair may not be involved again.
However, according to The Sun, the duo have already signed up for the 2011 run of the ITV1 reality series. Former skaters and show regulars Robin Cousins, Nicky Slater and Karen Barber are also expected to be on the panel.
Meanwhile, the 2011 run will apparently be held at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, because the programme's regular home Elstree Studios has been booked up for filming of the final Harry Potter movie.
Kerry Katona and hip-hop DJ Tim Westwood are two of the early names linked to the ice dancing show.
