Rugby player Max Evans have been confirmed as the next hopefuls ready to lace up their skates for the upcoming reboot of Dancing On Ice.
The former rugby star was confirmed on the show’s Instagram account: ‘Tackling #DancingOnIce, it’s rugby star @maxevans13! See you in 2018.’

Evans, who won 44 Scotland caps, said: ‘I haven’t done any skating since I was a kid, and this is completely different having to skate on live television. I’ve had two training sessions which have hurt my feet a lot. We’ve all had a dance, which is familiar territory, but skating is so not…’
Dancing On Ice will be making a comeback at the start of 2018. The ITV show was dropped in 2014 after nine series due to poor viewing figures, but it’s now set to return with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby back as hosts and resident ‘Mr Nasty’ Jason Gardiner returning to the judging panel.
