Patsy Palmer, the legendary legend, has been named the first celebrity to join the cast in 2023.
"I wanted to challenge myself and get out of my comfort zone, and that''s why I thought I''ll do it, which I''d imagine being a lot of fun," says Patsy.
"My pact that I made with myself when I was 50 was that I have to do everything to do myself for the next couple of years," she said. This is for 50-year-olds around the world that believe they can''t challenge themselves!"
Patsy is best known for playing Bianca Jackson''s iconic role from 1993 to1999. She then returned to Walford between 2008 and 2014, before most recently appearing in the role in 2019.
Kimberly Wyatt, Brendan Cole, and Regan Gascoigne all reached the final in 2022, with Regan Gascoigne taking the crown.
During the coming year, eleven new celebrities will meet to take on the ice each week, skating in a bid to impress both the panel and viewers at home. But who else will join Patsy in the lineup?
ITV has promised that the new series of the show will be the greatest yet, stating that "the greatest show on ice promises more glitz, glamour, and show-stopping performances," citing celebrities who excel in this dangerous discipline. But who is the need to master the skill and steps and win the trophy at the end of the series?"
Patsy is also a well-known DJ, so she has clearly been able to keep an eye on the beat, but will she be stepping up as one of the other performers in the show''s hall of fame?
In the next year, ITV and ITVX will be available.
