Kevin joins Maura and Michael who were announced as part of the line-up on Tuesday morning.

Maura said in the show: & I once skated for fun in my life, so I have no experience at all. I'm ready for the challenge.

Maura admitted, however, that she was nervous about performing the headbanger movement on the ice, with a skater being picked up by the ankle and spun around by their partner.

& # 39; (The headbanger) scares me. I'm more excited than scared. I am competitive, so I think that will drive me. & # 39;

The participants are not yet linked to their professional dance partners, but Maura admitted that she hopes for someone who will crack the whip.

Meanwhile, in a pre-recorded video, Michael said: & # 39; I am pleased to say that I will join the Dancing on Ice line-up for 2020.

ITV bosses believe that the Strike it Lucky host – who previously enjoyed a scoop of three decades on prime time TV – was able to rake viewers for the skating show, The sun reports.

The star, known for its Awight! slogan, was arrested in 2001 after Stuart Lubbock was found dead in a swimming pool at his home in Essex after a drug feast.

An insider told the publication: & # 39; Michael has always been TV gold and show heads appreciate that there is still a huge amount of interest in him. There is no doubt that he will be hilarious on the ice. & # 39;

Reportedly, ITV bosses believe he will have the same impact as Gemma Collins, who brought viewer ratings to the show earlier this year before being launched.

It was 18 years ago that Michael had his last major TV role before his career derailed by the 2001 scandal.

Michael publicly apologized for the death of the young man in his swimming pool 18 years ago in an emotional TV interview broadcast in June.

Michael said: & # 39; I am pleased to say that I will join the Dancing on Ice line-up for 2020 & # 39;

The entertainer said he couldn't regret & # 39 ;, almost two decades after Mr. Lubbock was found dead after a drug feast at his home in Essex.

Speaking of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, the star insisted that he hadn't given Stuart anything that night & # 39; but said & # 39; if you own the house, you're there responsible for & # 39 ;.

& # 39; You can see many things afterwards. I am not making any excuses, & he said.

& # 39; My apologies. I couldn't regret it anymore. I didn't give Stuart anything. Whatever he took. The E & # 39; s he apparently had at the club. There were no E & # 39; s in my house. I had a joint with the boys. If there is cocaine … he didn't get it from me. & # 39;

Mr. Lubbock, a factory supervisor, was found face down in Barrymore's swimming pool in 2001, with injuries suggesting he had been sexually abused. His death has never been completely resolved.

Michael admitted to Morgan that he & # 39; f ***** up & # 39; was when he originally refused to comment to the Essex police when asked if he had given Lubbock medication that night or not.

The former host of Strike It Lucky was warned of drug offenses in October 2001, but no further charges were brought.

He was subsequently arrested in June 2007 on suspicion of murder and sexual abuse. But three months later the case fell due to insufficient evidence.

Mr Lubbock's death inflicted a huge blow on Michael, and as a result he demanded £ 2.4 million in compensation from the police.

But the Court of Appeal ruled that he only had a & # 39; nominal & # 39; prize received – possibly only £ 1.

Before his career derailed by the 2001 scandal, Michael was one of Britain's most popular entertainers.

He enjoyed great success with ITV and presented shows such as Lucky Strike and Blankety Blank.

He believes that if he had not been arrested in 2007, he would have been an excellent candidate for plum roles such as hosting Strictly Come Dancing.

Michael and Maura will now put on their skates, along with ten other celebrities, in an attempt to become ice champions.

Every week, the twelve celebrities will skate live with their professional partners in an effort to impress both the panel and viewers, who will ultimately decide who wins the show.

This year John Barrowman sees Torvill and Dean and Ashley Banjo joining the panel, while Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby return to present the show.
