Stephen Lustig-Webb’s Exit from Dancing on Ice

Gogglebox star Stephen Lustig-Webb, who was set to participate in the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice, has been compelled to withdraw from the competition due to an ankle injury sustained during training.

A Decade on Gogglebox

Stephen Lustig-Webb, known for his 10-year stint on Gogglebox, initially left the Channel 4 show earlier this year to explore further TV opportunities. He was gearing up to join Dancing on Ice when it returns in January.

Ankle Injury Forces Withdrawal

Unfortunately, Stephen’s plans to grace the ice on Dancing on Ice have been thwarted by an ankle injury. Reports suggest he underwent surgery to insert metal plates into his ankle for added support, but a return to the rink seems improbable.

Dancing on Ice Family’s Support

A spokesperson for Dancing On Ice assured that Stephen Lustig-Webb remains an integral part of the Dancing On Ice family.

The show’s organizers are committed to supporting his recovery and wished him well in his healing process.

Double Blow for Dancing on Ice

This news comes as a double blow to the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice, as professional skater Matt Evers, a long-standing member of the show, also announced his departure.

Evers, who had been part of the cast since 2004, has been involved in various memorable moments on the show, including the historic same-sex pairing with Steps singer Ian ‘H’ Watkins in 2020.

Matt Evers’ Farewell

In his statement to The Sun, Matt Evers expressed his farewell to Dancing on Ice, stating that it was time to hang up his skates after 15 series.

He reflected on the incredible partners he had over the years and the memorable TV moments they created.

An End and a New Beginning

While both Stephen Lustig-Webb and Matt Evers are bidding farewell to the ice, their departures mark the end of an era and the beginning of new chapters in their careers.

Dancing on Ice is expected to make its return to ITV1 in January 2024, with new faces and fresh talent set to take the stage.
