Gemma Collins is set to make a surprise return to Dancing On Ice on tonight’s live show.
The former Towie star, 39, was last seen on the ice in 2019, when she had competed on Dancing On Ice’s 11th series, where James Jordan was eventually crowned the winner.
Gemma was the fifth celebrity to be eliminated during the series and caused quite a stir on the show, thanks to her fiery spats with former judge Jason Gardiner and one horror fall that left her heartbroken.
It’s fair to say she became a fan favourite during her time on the series, with Gemma finally making a return to the icing rink two years later.
The reality star was seen teasing her comeback on her Instagram story, as she made her way to the Dancing On Ice studios in the snow.
Gemma told fans: ‘Guys, I am such a child. I love snow. Just heading into Dancing On Ice, it’s going to be a great show tonight guys… make sure you watch.’

She’ll be supporting her former co-star and close friend Billie Faiers, who is set to make her Dancing On Ice debut tonight, as she skates for the first time this series.
Fans will have to wait until show time to find out exactly what Gemma has planned up her sleeve, as she made sure to keep quiet on the details.
Gemma added: ‘Billie’s skating, I make an appearance, can’t tell you what yet, but make sure you tune in.’
Let the countdown begin.
Gemma also shared a video of her winking while on set, before giving fans a quick look at the Dancing On Ice skating rink – proving she really is there and ready to make a comeback.
Also skating this week will be Myleene Klass, who not only fell and blacked out in rehearsal, but is also hoping to bounce back from a double knee injury.
Soap star Faye Brooks will take to the ice too, as will radio DJ Sonny Jay, Graham Bell and Olympian Colin Jackson.
They will follow on from last week’s performers – Rufus Hound, Joe Warren-Plant, Jason Donovan, Denise Van Outen, Rebekah Vardy and Lady Leshurr, who ended up in the skate-off, despite finding herself joint top of the leaderboard.
Dancing On Ice continues Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
