Dancing on Ice has gracefully glided back onto screens in 2023.
Joey Essex, Patsy Palmer and Michelle Heaton are among the stars donning their ice skates this year.
Each week, the celebrity contestants perfect a routine on the ice alongside their professional skater partner, which is then judged by skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, and dancers Oti Mabuse and Ashley Banjo.
The voting public then decides which routines weren’t up to scratch, sending two stars into the skate-off.
So, who has been in the skate-off so far? And which stars have left the show as a result?
Here’s all you need to know.
Who has left Dancing on Ice 2023?
First skate-off: John Fashanu

Ex-footballer John Fashanu, 60, was the first star sent home from the 2023 series.
After a performance of Eat My Goal by Collapsed Lung, John and skating professional partner Alexandra Schauman were given just 19 out of 40 points by the judges, meaning they had to face Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu in the skate-off.
John and Alexandra performed a second routine, to Norman Greenbaum’s Spirit In The Sky.
Ultimately, the judges decided to keep Ekin-Su, meaning John was the first star to leave the ice rink for good.
