Oti Mabuse will reportedly replace John Barrowman as a judge on the new series of Dancing On Ice.

Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse will reportedly join the judging panel of Dancing On Ice for the new series.

The 31-year-old appeared as a judge on ITV's The Masked Dancer earlier this year and has been part of the Strictly lineup for seven years, winning twice.

According to The Sun, Mabuse has agreed to judge Dancing On Ice when it returns next month - effectively making her a replacement for John Barrowman, who was dropped by ITV earlier this year.

"Signing up Oti is a brilliant coup for ITV bosses. They're really excited about her joining the show," a source told the newspaper.

"She has excellent dance experience and technical knowledge, an infectious on-screen energy and has a massive fanbase from her time on Strictly, which helps draw viewers.

"It's also a great move for Oti's career and the obvious next step for her."

Celebs appearing on the new series include Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor, rugby player Ben Foden and singer Rachel Stevens.
