Dancing On Ice brings the glam with third contestant reveal

Fans reckon they have this contestant's identity sussed!

Dancing On Ice has revealed the third celebrity who will be taking to the rink next year.

And by revealed, yes, we mean posted a totally unhelpful Instagram photo rather than just announcing the person’s name.

As you’ll know from reading ED!, the Dancing On Ice bosses are playing a rather fun game with viewers, choosing to unveil their star-studded line-up with cryptic photos focusing on one part of each contestant’s body.

We’ve had a buff man’s torso, a woman’s hand on her hip and now, a female applying red lipstick.

So, who is this mystery third contestant?

There’s not much to go on: a close-up photo of a woman’s red pout, lipstick in hand, alongside the caption: “More lippy, less slippy (hopefully). Sunday nights are about to get glammed up.”

But some viewers reckoned the lipstick was enough of a clue to give away the contestant.

“That’s definitely Candice from Bake Off,” wrote one.

“100% sure this is Candice Brown! Excited!” said another.

“I’m definitely going for Candice as well,” agreed a third.

“Definitely Candice Brown. I actually can’t wait,” added a fourth.

Good call, guys!

Candice won the seventh series of The Great British Bake Off and was as famous for her perfect pout as her perfect bakes!

Not everyone was convinced though, with some predicting it could be EastEnders actress Samantha Womack, best known as Walford’s Ronnie Mitchell.

Hmm… only time will tell!

With ITV yet to confirm any of the star contestants’ actual identities, it’s meant fans have been left drawing their own conclusions from the cryptic photos.

The first contestant ‘reveal’ was a buff shirtless torso, fuelling rumours it could be anyone from McFly’s Harry Judd to Judge Rinder, rugby pro Thom Evans and swimmer Mark Foster.

It could also possibly be former X Factor and I’m A Celebrity star Jake Quickenden.

According to The Sun, he’s been snapped up by bosses to provide some “eye candy” for viewers.

Meanwhile, the second contestant ‘reveal’ of a woman’s hand on her hip drew suggestions including TV presenter Angellica Bell, singers Beverley Knight and Heather Small, and EastEnders actress Diane Parish, best known as Walford’s Denise Fox.

Also mentioned were Saturdays star Rochelle Humes and cricketer Ebony Rainford-Brent.

Some suggested it could be X Factor stalwart Sinitta – until others pointed out she already did the show, appearing in the fifth series where she was eliminated first.
