The former Strictly Come Dancing professional will be donning his skates when the show returns next year.
The big news was broken on Radio 5 Live this morning.
James said: ”I can dance but I’m a lot older than I used to be. People are going to probably say I’ve got an unfair advantage but when I got on the ice I actually shocked myself how bad I was.
“I want to be able to impress Torvill and Dean more than anyone else, but I’m a lot worse than I thought I’d be.”
Meanwhile, it looks like the choreographer has plenty of fans waiting to cheer him on in the rink.
One supporter tweeted of the news: “That’s made my day !!!!”
While another said: Can’t wait for this,I think he will smash it.
“@The_JamesJordan never watched dancing on ice, but will be doing now #DancingOnIce @dancingonice,” a third added.
A fourth shared: “So excited for @The_JamesJordan on dancing on ice going to be so good! And hopefully we’ll see @The_OlaJordan in the audienc.”
The other two stars already announced for the competition are actor Richard Blackwood and reality star Gemma Collins.
Dancing on Ice is expected to return next January.
