ITV has revealed the song line-up for this Sunday’s Dancing on Ice “Musicals Week”.
Hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the celebrities and their professional skating partners will perform routines inspired by famous musicals – with one couple leaving the competition with a dramatic twist to the elimination.
Olympic legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean head up the ice judging panel alongside dance star Ashley Banjo and Oti Mabuse.
This year an actual West End star is one of the celebrities – our very own Carley Stenson, who was recently appearing in From Here To Eternity at the Charing Cross Theatre, and whose previous credits include Legally Blonde The Musical, and Les Miserables. In Dancing on Ice on Sunday, she will dance to Anything Goes from Anything Goes!

- Carley Stenson and Mark Hanretty: “Anything Goes” from Anything Goes
- The Vivienne and Colin Grafton: “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” from Evita
- Patsy Palmer and Matt Evers: “Defying Gravity” from Wicked
- Michelle Heaton and Lukasz Rozycki: “All That Jazz” from Chicago
