For those who did not know Hanlin before the series, he started his career presenting a series on the Discovery Channel called Breaking Magic.
He then went on to front his own show, Tricked, on ITV2 which ran from 2013 until 2016 and he was able to show his impressive magic skills.
After announcing his involvement in the series on BBC Radio London, he said: “Can I ice skate? Barely. But I did say to the producers ‘if I’m going to do this, can I try to do magic on ice?’”
He added: “I will try and attempt to put magic into the show if I can.”
The Dancing on Ice semi-final airs tonight on ITV at 6pm
