Dancing On Ice pros Hamish Gaman and Yebin Mok dropped from 2022 line-up

Hamish Gaman, Yebin Mok and Klabera Komini are all leaving Dancing On Ice ahead of the new series – here are their new replacements.

Yebin Mok and Hamish Gaman won’t be taking part in this year’s Dancing on Ice

Dancing On Ice will be saying goodbye to some of the show’s most beloved professionals ahead of the 2022 series – with Hamish Gaman among those exiting.

Hamish, Yebin Mok and Klabera Komini will all be sliding away from the show after several years on the ice, with three new faces filling their skates.

Both Hamish and Yebin were forced to pull out of the 2021 series early, following injuries that could have long-term effects on their performances.

Yebin was the first major injury of 2020, after she was stabbed by partner Graham Bell’s skate blade while training for launch night.

In the freak accident, the couple fell in training, with Yebin landing on the back of Graham’s skate and needing an operation after tendons were exposed.

Thankfully, there was no tendon or nerve damage, but it meant she had to withdraw from the competition.

Earlier this week, Yebin and her partner, Dr Tom Naylor, announced the arrival of their second child , a daughter named Lilia Song-i Naylor.

In an even more bizarre incident, Hamish – who was heading towards the final with partner Faye Brooks – tore a tendon in his hand while pulling up a sock.

It meant he was no longer able to support his partner or perform lifts.

Klabera was only on the show for a year, placed third alongside former Olympic hurdler and pundit, Colin Jackson. Capital FM star Sonny Jay took home the winners’ trophy.

Who are the pro skaters of Dancing On Ice 2022?

Joining this year’s competition is Team GB figure skater Morgan Swales, three-time Hong Kong champion Tippy Packard and former Team USA skater Colin Grafton.

Morgan, 22, says that she was inspired to become an ice skater thanks to watching Dancing On Ice as a child.

Tippy has toured the world as a performance skater, following her retirement as a competitor.

Colin is a US championship bronze medallist, who also works as a model and performance skater.

They will join Matt Evers, Alexandra Schauman and husband Lukasz Rozycki, Andy Buchanan and his wife Robin Johnstone, Mark Hanretty, Brendyn Hatfield, Vanessa Bauer, Karina Manta, Joe Johnson and Angela Egan.

Angela is the current reigning pro champion.
