Olympic Skier, Graham Bell, is the latest celebrity to join the exciting line-up for Dancing on Ice 2021. Despite being no stranger to the slopes or long training days, he admits that the choreography will be his biggest challenge. What he may lack in elegance and grace, however, Graham will certainly make up for with his determination to win!
Following the announcement, Graham took to Twitter to challenge his competition, and ask the age-old question - #canyoudoitonskates? From playing the piano with skates for hands, tagging Myleene Klass, to using the blades as cutlery for a full English breakfast, challenging the popular presenter Denise Van Outen, Graham has proven himself to be the most competitive contestant.
Audiences look forward to seeing Graham’s personality shine on the show, and do not doubt that he will perform some of the most entertaining dances ever witnessed on Dancing on Ice!
Who is competing in Dancing on Ice 2021?
From comedian Rufus Hound to rapper Lady Leshurr and the skier turned commentator Graham Bell, this year’s Dancing on Ice line up is one of the best yet. Since ITV announced the full cast, fans have been quick to bet on next year’s winner, with Graham’s skiing background earning him a fair shot. And, having already learnt how to safely fall during his sporting career, Graham will likely come out of the competition with the fewest bruises!
Going head to head with Graham this year is fellow athlete Colin Jackson, the Olympic medal-winning track runner. Though Graham admits that he is a good skier, and already has dancing knowledge from Strictly Come Dancing, Colin will be up against fierce competition considering the skier’s five Olympic appearances.
Graham enjoyed a successful career as an Olympic skier, attending five Games before retiring to present on the award-winning Ski Sunday. With his experience on ice and countless television credits, Graham will skate with the confidence of a professional athlete. However, one question remains, can he dance like one too?
