Dancing On Ice returns to screens this weekend after a four-year hiatus.
With Strictly Come Dancing over for another year, we’re about to get addicted DOI in its place.
Here we get to know contestant Stephanie Waring – who might just end up being the champion in a couple of months time…
Who is Stephanie Waring and where was she born?
Steph was born in Urmston, Greater Manchester on February 19, 1978. That makes her 39.

Steph’s probably most famous for her role in Hollyoaks as scheming Cindy Cunningham. She’s appeared in the show on and off since 1996.
Is Stephanie Waring dating anyone?
Steph is currently single.
She revealed she hates being called “unlucky in love”.
She said: “It’s so unfair when people call me unlucky in love – and really frustrating.
“If I meet someone and I’m happy and in love I will go to the ends of the Earth to make it work. But if I’m not I will end it and I will move on.”
She has two children, Mia Grace, 12, and Lexi Grace, seven.
Lexi’s dad is Dan Hooper, who famously went on to date Kym Marsh just weeks after splitting with Steph in 2014 which caused a massive fallout between Steph and Kym.
