The pairings for this year's Dancing On Ice have been confirmed.

Following the announcement of which celebrities will compete in the ITV show, it has now been revealed that just five professional dancers who have previously taken part will return for the new series. Matt Evers, Daniel Whiston, Frankie Poultney, Maria Filippov and Brianne Delcourt will be joined by 11 new faces to partner the celebrities.

Evers will skate with Loose Women star Denise Welch, while Whiston has been partnered with Kerry Katona.

Neighbours star Craig McLachlan will dance with Filippov, Poultney with 'Comedy Dave' Vitty and Delcourt is paired with former EastEnders actor Sam Attwater.

Angela Rippon, the oldest contestant to ever compete on the series, has been partnered with Canadian gold medallist Sean Rice, Hollyoaks' Jennifer Metcalfe with French skater Sylvain Longchambon, and Corrie actor Steven Arnold with Russian professional Nina Ulanova.

Other pairings include Chloe Madeley and Michael Zenezini, Nadia Sawalha and Mark Hanretty, Elen Rives and Lukasz Rozycki, Dominic Cork and Alexandra Schauman, and Katie Stainsby and Vanilla Ice.

Jodeyne Higgins - married to Sean Rice - will dance with Johnson Beharry VC, Isabelle Gauthier with Jeff Brazier and Colin Ratushniak will partner TV presenter Laura Hamilton.

In a twist, four couples will be voted off the show in the first two weeks.

Dancing On Ice returns to ITV on January 9.
