Seven female celebrities will attempt to impress with their skating skills tonight in a bid to stay in 'Dancing On Ice'.

The two competitors with the lowest scores will battle it out in a skate-off during the live shows to find out who will go home.

Paul McCartney’s ex-wife, amputee and charity campaigner Heather Mills, is taking part in the ITV show, alongside 'EastEnders' actress Danniella Westbrook.

Also donning skates and sequins are actress Hayley Tamaddon, chef Gordon Ramsay’s wife Tana Ramsay, singer Sinitta, 'Inbetweeners' actress Emily Atack and Olympic swimmer and presenter Sharron Davies.

Only the women will perform their routines tonight, with the seven male stars taking their turn next week.

Comedian and actor Bobby Davro has been in training with Olympic stars Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, as have Boyzone singer Mikey Graham, GMTV’s Dr Hilary Jones, actor Gary Lucy, 'Hollyoaks' actor Kieron Richardson, actor Jeremy Sheffield and ex-'Coronation Street' actor Danny Young.

The fifth series will see Spice Girl Emma Bunton joining the judging panel to assess the celebrities’ efforts on the ice.

She will join Robin Cousins, Karen Barber, Jason Gardiner and Nicky Slater.

The series, presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, will feature a new preview show.

Coleen Nolan and Ben Shephard will give fans a taste of the live performances and behind-the-scenes insights every Friday.
