Andrei Lipanov returning to Dancing on Ice

A STAR skating coach at Billingham Forum is making an unexpected return to hit TV show Dancing on Ice.

Russian Andrei Lipanov has been an instant hit at the reopened Forum where he coaches figure skating.

Andrei settled down with his family in the North-east after enjoying a four-year stint partnering celebrities on the popular ITV show.

But after one of the current professional coaches dropped out of Dancing on Ice 2012, producers asked Andrei if he would step in.

The news that his departure was only temporary brought relief to the amateur skaters he coaches at the Forum.

And a group of them, dressed as schoolgirls with Andrei’s name printed on their shirts, took to the rink to wish him luck with the show.

Becky Robson, a 19-year-old student at Durham University’s Queen’s Campus in Stockton, said: “I think Andrei’s upset about leaving us, but he keeps his emotions in check.”

And she joked they won’t be voting for Andrei on the show “so we can get him back sooner!”

The name of the celebrity partnering Andrei on Dancing on Ice has not been released - but internet speculation suggests it could be Sugababes singer Heidi Range, after her partner suffered a serious injury.

Andrei, 35, who was born in St Petersburg and turned professional at 20, has been working at the Forum since it reopened its doors in June after an £18.5m refurbishment.

The dad-of-one said he would “be sad” to leave his coaching for what could be up to five months if he has a good run on the show.

“I have mixed feelings because I want to do well, but I also love it here,” he said.

“But they needed somebody experienced to step in.

“It was good to see the support for me from the skaters, and I’d like to thank Tees Active (who run the Forum) for keeping my place here.

“As soon as I finish the show I will come back here.”

Other celebrities believed to be lined up for the new series of Dancing on Ice, which starts early next month, include actress Jennifer Ellison, American actor Corey Feldman, singer Chesney Hawkes and exercise guru Rosemary Conley.

Thank you.

She's excited, she came to the 20 week scan with us as we went on holiday that day so she wasn't at school.

Also she's started to feel him/her move and also she can see when he/she moves, which I think makes it more real for her.

So after an almost 3 year absence, Andrei returns! Good to see him back, it's about time he got a front-runner.

I'm pleased to see Andrei back, although it's a shame that it's under these circumstances.

I'm glad to see him back, it's a shame Suzie never got a decent partner either.
 
I watched Andrei and Suzie skate together on tour and they were fantastic. I miss Fred & Mel too.
