The competition will send home 10 skaters over time to get to five lucky finalists.

They will then compete in Planet Ice’s gala.

Jill added: ‘On the finals night we will announce the winner and they will receive a voucher towards a brand new pair of skates.

‘They will also receive a year’s free unlimited ice skating pass and the opportunity of featuring in a Christmas Ice Show.’
