Rufus Hound put comedy for Dancing On Ice 2021, winning an even bigger fan base during his short time on the show. Let's take a look at everything we know about the star.
Rufus Hound is best known for his stint on Celebrity Juice, but in January 2021 he took on a very different ITV show, Dancing On Ice, which he has now had to withdraw from.
After coming into contact with someone with coronavirus, Rufus isolated for 10 days but tested positive for the virus himself twice.
He's gutted to be leaving the show but fans are hoping to see more of the comedian once he recovers.
Rufus is married to Beth Johnson, who he met at Reading Festival in in 2006 – what a story!
The pair tied the knot at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada, a year later and we really, really want to be friends with these guys.
Oh, and for Valentine's Day, you ask?
Beth surprised him with a trip to go axe throwing.
We hope we're this fun when we're married.
Rufus Hound is 41 years old, only coming into fame in his 20s when he left his day job as an account executive for Claire's Accessories to pursue comedy full time!
If only his younger self could see him now.
Rufus is from Surrey, just outside of London but he now apparently lives in Hampton, West London.
The comedian does have Instagram, which he occasionally posts on about his daily life rather than anything too showbizzy.
You can follow him at @dogfacedboi along with 20k others!
He also has a Twitter account which he uses much more frequently and has a whopping one million followers – the handle is @RufusHound.
Dancing On Ice airs on ITV every Sunday at 6pm!
