Kelvin Fletcher has reportedly been replaced on Dancing on Ice by magician Ben Hanlin, after ditching the show for Strictly Come Dancing.

The Emmerdale star left Strictly audiences stunned last night with his incredible first performance with Oti Mabuse, after jumping in to the series at the eleventh hour to replace an injured Jamie Laing.

But his inclusion in the show has allegedly meant him giving up his spot on the ice-skating ITV rival, and so Ben Hanlin, who appeared on magic series Tricked, is stepping up.

He fronted three series of ITV2s Tricked but he hasnt been on telly for a while now, a source told The Sun. To say hes excited is an understatement. He cant wait to bring some magic to the show.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Dancing On Ice reps for comment.

Team Dancing On Ice has been teasing who could possibly be joining the show over on their Instagram, with small clues leaving fans eager for the big reveal.

One seems to indicate that Joe Swash, fresh from ending his stint on Im a Celebrity Extra Camp, will be trading the heat of Australias Gold Coast for the ice rink.

Another pouty snap has viewers convinced that Love Island 2019 icon Maura Higgins will be back on our screens in no time.

Other clues so far have included a footballer, what appears to be a commentator, an afro hairstyle, and a medal.

A man holding a joker playing card is who fans are assuming to be Ben, after initial suggestions thought BGTs Richard Jones would be taking to the competition.

Dancing On Ice returns in early 2020 on ITV.
