Dancing On Ice 2024 will be on our screens before we know it and the line-up is close to being complete.

Claire, Amber and Stephen will be joined by Ricky Hatton, Hannah Spearritt, Greg Rutherford, Miles Nazaire, Lou Sanders and EastEnders actor Ricky Norwood. Other celebs are likely to be confirmed soon.

Ricky – who played Fatboy on the soap – was confirmed as the latest star today (October 4). He said on Loose Women: “I’m very excited. Very scared. It’s come at such a great time in life.”

Can he skate? Linda Robson asked. Ricky replied: “No, not at all.

“It was something that scared me and it’s a massive challenge and I think we all grow when we do something that scares us.”

How are fans reacting?

On X – formerly known as Twitter – fans are sharing their thoughts on the line-up so far. And it’s not looking pretty!

One person said: “This is turning out to be an awful line-up for @dancingonice. I hope they are leaving the big names to the end?”

Another wrote: “Speaking of shows I grew up watching I’m kinda disappointed with the #DancingOnIce line-up for next year. I’ll still watch but the only one I know is Hannah from S Club 7. Surely they can do better than that…”

Someone else added: “They’ve been scraping the barrel for years. Both Ice and Strictly have. Ice isn’t popular anymore.”

“Scraping the barrel I see. Did you spend so much on Claire and Ricky that you can’t afford anyone else?,” another commented.

Meanwhile, one person said: “Dancing On Ice 2024 line up so far: Who? Who? Aw Stephen from Googlebox!”

Another admitted: “Another bunch of D list celebs apart from a couple of people.”

A seventh tweeted: “So far not sure I will bother. Who are these people. (Apart from Greg Rutherford). Someone from Gogglebox is not a celebrity.”

In addition, another wrote: “Who are some of these ‘celebrities’, never heard of half of them!!”

Someone else added: “So far I have only heard of one of these so called ‘celebrities’…”

However, others are excited about the line-up. One gushed: “I am loving the line-up for @dancingonice so far it just keeps getting better and better. Can’t wait for it to start in January.”
