"So it would be me and my professional skating partner, plus a coach in one bubble.

"We don't think we will need to isolate with each other - they're not going to move in as far as I know, though that would be really good for training."

Training kicks off soon

Graham went on to explain that the celebrities wouldn't be training together for the show...

"Once we get to the phase where we are actually training, we are at different ice rinks across the country, so we are all separated.

John Barrowman, Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will all be returning to the judging panel for 2021

"A lot of the banter will be on social media because we won't necessarily get to meet up as much as we would have done in pervious years.

"So that, in a way, is more inclusive. In order to communicate we are going to. be using social media so everyone else is going to be able to see it."
