The choreographer told his followers on Twitter that he will be replaced by Jason Gardiner when the show returns next year.
Spence said: “To all asking no I won’t be judging @Dancingonice this year Jason is back …”
“Can’t wait to watch @officialJasonG on @dancingonice he will spice up the ice, go guuurrrrrlllll lol”
Gardiner was previously a judge on the show from 2006 until 2011. He will join Robin Cousins on the panel, while The Sun reports that a new female judge will replace Katarina Witt, who is also leaving the show.
Despite a dip in ratings, as the show clashed with hit new BBC drama Call The Midwife, Dancing On Ice is expected to return for its eighth series in January.
