Stephanie Waring has been confirmed as the twelfth celebrity to compete in Dancing on Ice 2018.

Best known for portraying Cindy Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, she’s also had roles in Coronation Street, daytime soap opera Doctors and medical drama Holby City.

Waring has met her professional partner and will now embark on training ahead of the new season of Dancing on Ice, which returns to ITV in the New Year.

The 12 celebrities will be skating to impress the ice panel, consisting of skating legends Torvill and Dean, show favourite Jason Gardiner and Diversity's Ashley Banjo.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will co-anchor the show.

Waring joins previously confirmed celebrities Brooke Vincent, Cheryl Baker, Kem Cetinay, Candice Brown, Max Evans, Jake Quickenden, Monty Panesar, Alex Beresford, Donna Air, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Antony Cotton to complete the lineup.

"It's quite a daunting challenge," she admitted. "The first day was pretty tough. I thought I'd be better than I was. I fell over once.

"It's very technical; it's the way you hold yourself, the positioning of your feet. Balancing is the hardest thing to do. I thought, 'Well I can do yoga, I can obviously skate on ice...' No Steph, you can't!"
