Dancing On Ice has been given the green light for another series in 2019, following its return after a four-year hiatus.
The ITV skating programme originally ran from 2006 until 2014, and made a comeback this month for a new series hosted by returning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
The rebooted programme has seen a new judging line-up, consisting of former Olympic champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean – who previously acted as coaches – returning panellist Jason Gardiner and newcomer Ashley Banjo.
Another change sees the show broadcast from an ice skating facility at Bovingdon Airfield, rather than its previous home at Elstree Studios.
Siobhan Greene, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: “The show’s welcome back has exceeded our expectations and it’s been fantastic to see the audience at home loving it.
“The recommission is a no-brainer and it’s brilliant for everyone involved to know it’ll be back next year.”
ITV Studios creative director Katie Rawcliffe said: “All of us missed Dancing On Ice while the show was off screen and it seems all our viewers did too … our on-screen changes have been brilliantly received and we’re looking forward to getting our skates on for series two.”
The new series has averaged 7.8 million consolidated viewers per episode, according to ITV.
Celebrity competitors in the current series include Love Island winner Kem Cetinay, singer Cheryl Baker, Coronation Street stars Antony Cotton and Brooke Vincent and athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton.
Former Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown and Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Waring were eliminated from the competition in the first two weeks.
