Dancing on Ice (ITV1 Wales, tomorrow, 6.30pm).

The pro-celebrity skating contest is back for another series, but eagle-eyed fans will quickly spot that there have been a few changes down at the rink. For starters, Holly Willoughby has skated off - she's going to be hosting the BBC's new talent show The Voice - and Christine Bleakley is taking over as Phillip Schofield's co-host.

It's also all-change on the judging panel, which may come as a relief to some of the celebrities, who will no longer have to face the fearsome Jason Gardiner.

Emma Bunton has also stepped aside, and now head judge Robin Cousins is joined by double Olympic champion Katarina Witt and acclaimed choreographer Louie Spence. But before you get worried you won't recognise Dancing on Ice any more, rest assured figure-skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean are still on hand to help this year's crop of celebrities find their feet.

As we get our first good look at the stars in action, will a front-runner emerge, ready to step into last year's winner Sam Attwater's skates and grab the trophy? Or will the nearest anyone gets to the infamous head-banger lift be when they take a nasty tumble?
