The star-studded line-up for the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice is gradually being unveiled.
The TV series will feature returning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
However, John Barrowman, who joined the judging panel in 2019, will not be back.
A spokeswoman for ITV said: “We thank John Barrowman for two brilliant years on the Dancing On Ice panel and are pleased to be working with him again as host of the forthcoming All Star Musicals specials.”
Dancing on Ice 2022 returns to ITV screens in January 2022.

Fresh from appearing on Love Island, the waitress and marketing student from Birmingham will be taking to the rink.
The 22-year-old was coupled up with Jake Cornish in the latest series of the ITV dating show, but the pair called time on their romance and left the villa early.
She said: “I grew up watching Dancing On Ice and my mum actually used to be a figure skater.”
– Rachel Stevens
The former S Club 7 singer, 43, shot to fame as part of the chart-topping band between 1999 and 2003.
She later embarked on a successful solo career and finished second on Strictly Come Dancing in 2008.
Rachel, who shares two daughters with husband Alex Bourne, said: “I love the whole idea of working with a team and your partner and also for my girls to be a part of this. They are at an age now where they love all the costumes.”

The son of former England footballer Paul is a singer and dancer.
He said: “Obviously I dance and love dancing, but it’s the skill of this… I’ve always wanted to do it. Always! Ever since I was a kid!”
– Ben Foden
The former England rugby player, 36, was previously married to singer Una Healy and competed in Simon Cowell’s X Factor celebrity spin-off series in 2019.
He said: “I’m quite competitive as well so I like the challenge of competing against others doing something that I’m not necessarily good at.”
– Stef Reid
News of track and field Paralympian Stef Reid, 36, joining the show was announced on Good Morning Britain.
She said: “I have some really exciting news. I’m going to be picking up a new sport this winter and it comes with a little bit of showbiz.
“I’m going to be a contestant on Dancing On Ice and it’s a little bit scary but I cannot wait!”
The maraca-shaking dancer, famed for his onstage antics as part of Madchester-era band Happy Mondays, will discover if his moves translate to the ice rink.
The 57-year-old, whose real name is Mark Berry, said: “At the moment it’s more like Bambi on Ice, not Dancing On Ice.
“How I got picked I don’t know because I was absolutely awful at the audition, but they must have seen some potential in me.”
– Sally Dynevor
The Coronation Street star was the first celebrity skater to be announced.
The 58-year-old actress is known to viewers as ambitious Sally Webster in the long-running ITV soap, a part she has played since 1986.
Sally appeared on Lorraine to announce the news, saying: “This is a massive challenge. It really, really is.
“I’m not getting any younger. I’ve just got to take every opportunity I get so that when I’m old I can say, ‘You know what? I gave it a go’.”
