Dancing On Ice 2023: Hollyoaks star Carley Stenson becomes ninth celebrity

October 9, 2022

Former Hollyoaks actress Carley Stenson has been announced as the ninth celebrity getting her skates on for the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice.

The West End performer, 40, will be competing against the likes of Towie’s Joey Essex, former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer, football legend John Fashanu, Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, olympic gymnast Nile Wilson, Coronation Street’s Mollie Gallagher and drag queen The Vivienne.

Speaking about the exciting gig, she said: ‘I’m so excited that I get to learn how to dance…on ice! I’m terrified but can’t wait.

‘I just want to make the most of this whole experience.’

Carly has starred in several West End productions including Legally Blonde: The Musica, where she met actor and husband Danny Mac.

Carley, 38, and Danny, 34, have been married for four years, having tied the knot in 2017.

Both actors previously starred in soap Hollyoaks, with Carley playing Steph Cunningham on the soap from 2000 until 2011 and Danny portraying Mark ‘Dodger’ Savage from 2011 until 2015.

Danny also knows a thing or two about competitive reality TV, as he made it to the Strictly Come Dancing final back in 2016 – which was won by Ore Oduba.

There are a few more names to be announced as 11 celebrities will take the ice next year to impress the judges and viewers – and hopefully make it to the final without any injuries on the way.

Last year saw Regan Gascoigne and partner Karina Marta beat the likes of former Strictly pro Brendan Cole and singer Kimberly Wyatt to lift the coveted trophy.

We can’t wait to see which two celebrities will complete the 2023 line-up.

Dancing On Ice returns in January 2023 on ITV.
