Denise Van Outen, Wayne Bridge and Love Island's Luke Trotman are among the celebrities vying for a spot on Dancing On Ice 2021.
In photos obtained by The Sun, the celebrities were seen arriving for auditions for the popular skating show, with 12 spots available for the 17 stars battling it out.
Denise, 46, looked stylish in gym gear as she arrived at Slough Ice Arena in Berkshire alongside former footballer Wayne, 39, who carried some skates.
Love Island 2020 alumni Luke, 22, caught the eye in a neon jumper as he strolled to the arena.
Olympians Denise Lewis, 47, and Mark Foster, 50, were also seen headed to auditions, alongside darts player Fallon Sherrock.
Blue singer Antony Costa, 39, was seen arriving at the arena smoking a cigarette while actress Vicki Michelle, 69, from 'Allo 'Allo! also showed up.
Fellow reality stars vying for a spot also reportedly include Love Island's Dr Alex George, 30, TOWIE's Billie Faiers, 30, Made In Chelsea's Olivia Bentley, 24, and Ru Paul's Drag Race star Baga Chipz, 30.
Singer Toyah Wilcox, 62, is also said to have tried out along with comedian Rufus Hound, 41, This Morning star Lisa Maxwell, 56, Tattoo Fixers star Stephen 'Sketch' Porter and vlogger LadBaby, 33.
A source told the website there was an 'undercurrent of competition' during the auditions as work is scarce during the COVID-19 crisis.
They said: 'Everyone was in high spirits and excited to be working again.
'Places on a primetime show are lucrative and contestants get a huge career boost by taking part.
'There are likely to be other auditions for celebrities based in more remote areas, and even abroad.'
The show will begin airing in January, with training kicking off in the autumn.
The 2020 series was won by actor Joe Swash and skater Alex Murphy, with the pro axed from the 2021 line-up.
Alex revealed the news in a statement last month, confessing she had no idea it was coming.
Addressing her 109,000 Instagram followers, Alex, 31, admitted she felt 'bewildered, lost, and devastated' at the decision.
