When is the first Dancing On Ice elimination? Here's how the ITV series works

DANCING On Ice is returning to our screens tomorrow night (January 5) – with some familiar presenters and some brand new celebrities.

Last year's show was a big success as James Jordan skated away with the title. Here's what to expect from the 2020 series.

When is the first Dancing on Ice elimination?

No celebrities will leave Dancing on Ice tomorrow in week one.

This is because only half will perform, and the remaining half will save their debut for the second show on Sunday 12 January – which is when the first elimination will take place.

After that the two couples with the lowest scores from the judges combined with the public vote will dance in the skate-off.

The judges will then determine which celebrity to keep in the competition and the loser will be be eliminated.

Last year, Neighbours star Mark Little was the first celebrity to lose his place.

How many acts are eliminated each week?

Typically, one celebrity will be eliminated every week.

However, reality shows have been known to bend the rules.

In the grand final, one celeb will be crowned the skating champion.

What time is Dancing on Ice on ITV?

The new series of Dancing on Ice kicks off tomorrow (Sunday, January 5 2020) at 6pm.

The ITV show's opening episode will run on for two hours – meaning it will end at 8pm.

As always, there are a great bunch of famous names hoping to skate their way to victory.

While our favourites judges and presenters are also returning to the show – with one slight switch up to the panel.
