Amy Tinkler has signed up to Dancing on Ice 2021, replacing Denise van Outen, but who is the Olympic athlete? Let’s get to know the skating hopeful, including her age, boyfriend and gymnastics sports career.
After three months of rehearsals in case the series needed a replacement, Olympic gymnast Amy announced she’ll be taking to the rink with professional skater Joe Johnson.
As an Olympic athlete with multiple medals to her name, Amy already has high expectations for the competition, competing against the likes of Capital’s very own Sonny Jay, Billie Faiers, and Jason Donovan.
So who is Amy Tinkler on Dancing on Ice? Does she have a boyfriend? And where is she from? Let's get to know the DOI newbie:
Amy is a retired Olympic gymnast who won Bronze in the Rio Olympics and has medals from both the European and World championships.
At the Rio Olympics in 2016 she made history by becoming the first British woman to receive a medal in a gymnastics floor exercise and Britain’s youngest athlete to win a medal in 32 years.
She’s apparently known for keeping a cool head during competition, no doubt something that will help her during her Dancing on Ice experience.
Amy is 21 years old.
Her birthday is 27 October 1999.
Amy was born and grew up in Durham, but her gymnastics club is South Essex, which she joined in 2017.
Amy does have a boyfriend! She has been with partner Max Cinnamon, a music producer and songwriter, for almost a year.
The couple often share PDA pics on Instagram, making their six-mont anniversary in September last year with a snap of them kissing.
Amy does have Instagram! You can follow her at @amytinkler where she has over 57k followers.
