Dancing on Ice has confirmed the sixth celebrity contestant to take part in the 2024 series.

TV personality Miles Nazaire, best known for appearing in Channel 4 reality show Made in Chelsea, has confirmed his place in the new series of Dancing on Ice next year.

The announcement was made via Nazaire and Dancing in Ice's official Instagram accounts today (October 3).

"He can go for miles but how will Chelsea Charmer Miles Nazaire fare around the rink?" teased Dancing on Ice in its announcement post.

In a press statement, Nazaire further shared his delight and nerves ahead of his skating challenge.

"I’ve always loved to dance but it’s usually on a dance floor on a Saturday night and Dancing on Ice looks so difficult," he said.

He added: "I keep thinking about how I’m going to need to have rhythm while balancing on a thin blade and that's when I feel the nerves kick in, but this is such an unbelievable opportunity to get totally out of my comfort zone."

The reality TV star is the latest celebrity announced for the cast, following in the wake of Olympic champion and former Strictly Come Dancing star Greg Rutherford, who was announced as taking part in the show yesterday.

The two will join Love Island star Amber Davies and S Club 7 singer Hannah Spearritt on the rink, alongside Brookside and Coronation Street actress Claire Sweeney and world champion boxer Ricky Hatton in the lineup.

ITV has confirmed that further cast announcements can be expected this week, with 12 celebrities in total expected to appear on the programme.

While This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby is expected to return to host the series, ITV has yet to announce her new co-host, following Phillip Schofield's departure from the channel in May.

Dancing on Ice's judging panel for 2024 is also awaiting official confirmation, but it's likely that viewers will see skating icons Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, plus Diversity star Ashley Banjo and Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse, return to give their verdict on the contestants' routines.

Dancing on Ice will return to ITV and ITVX in early 2024.
