ROBIN Johnstone is a familiar face on the Dancing On Ice rink.
The star danced with the likes of Gareth Thomas and Joe Pasquale in her 2013 and 2014 appearances on the show – and she's back as a pro partner this time round.
Who is Robin Johnstone?
Robin is a professional ice dancer bailing from Canada.
Born in Steinbach, Manitoba, Robin has been skating since she was just two years old, and decided to go pro when she turned twenty.
She first worked with Toronto Ice Theater, Paramount Canada's Wonderland and Paramount Kings Island.
Robin then joined Disney on Ice, which was a great achievement for the avid Disney fan.
She has played Mulan, Jane from Tarzan and Princess Jasmine during her shows with the company.
She has also performed as part of Cirque du Soleil and Holiday on Ice casts.
First appearing on Dancing on Ice back in 2013 and 2014, she is back for 2021, partnering with comedian Rufus Hound.
Is Robin Johnstone married to Andy Buchanan?
Yes, Robin Johnstone is married to fellow skater Andy Buchanan – and has been for 13 years!
The pair unsurprisingly first met on the rink, when they were both working at Disney on Ice.
The pair were both starring in a show called Jungle Adventures in 2000, in which Robin played Jane, and Andy skated as Simba.
The pair married and began their double act, skating together as Jasmine and Aladdin and starring together in acro-skating circus show Crystal.
When does Dancing On Ice 2021 start?
