Saira Khan confirmed as fifth Dancing on Ice 2019 contestant
Saira Khan is the fifth celebrity skater confirmed for a brand new series of Dancing on Ice 2019, which returns to ITV in the New Year.
Saira was announced live on today's Loose Women. She joins Gemma Collins, Richard Blackwood, James Jordan and Brian McFadden in the line up.
Saira will be getting her skates and sequins on ready to compete alongside eleven other celebrities in the quest for glory, under the watchful eye of the skating legends Torvill and Dean, who head up the judging panel.
Each week the twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners in a bid to impress both the panel and the viewers, who will ultimately decide who wins the show.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby once again return to present the show.
On joining the show, Saira said "I'm in it to win it! I thought 'I'm too old, I can't do it, I'm going fall.' And my little boy said 'have you heard yourself mum?' He shamed me into it. I'm doing this for my kids. Honestly I cannot skate. I've never been on ice skates."
