Dancing on Ice judge Ashley Banjo is back for his fifth series of Dancing on Ice after joining the show as a judge in 2018.

The 34 street dancer still lives in a gorgeous Essex home with his soon to be ex wife Francesca Abbott and their two kids.

The couple, who had a 16 year long relationship, announced in December 2022 that they had actually been separated for 18 months – meaning that they split sometime around June 2021, but kept it a secret from the public.

The family have frequently showcased their beautiful home in Essex on social media.

Their house is a traditional redbrick building and the interior walls look to be mostly white and neutral shades, with a few standout walls and art pieces that make their house their own.

The large family home even includes a real fireplace to ensure that the place is always cosy and warm.

Ashley married his longtime girlfriend Francesca Abbott in 2015, ten years after they first met and started dating in their late teens.

Their wedding took place in Essex, which they made their full time home not long after.

The couple went on to have two kids, four year old daughter Rose and three year old son Micah, but ultimately revealed they had been separated for some time in December 2022.

Despite the split, the two have remained on great terms and continue to live together as they focus on raising their kids.

Ashley shot to fame in 2009 when his dance troupe Diversity won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent.

The 34 year old had founded the group two years prior, in 2007, with his younger brother Jordan Banjo and nine of their friends.

Since then, Ashley’s turned his attention to TV work and appeared as a judge for all five series of Sky’s Got To Dance competition show.

In 2020, he stood in as a guest judge for Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent, the show that made him famous.

As well as his work on Dancing On Ice, Ashley now fronts Netflix series and dance competition Dance Monsters, which premiered its’ first series on 16 December 2022.

The show, which also stars former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts and singer Neyo, sees amateur dancers disguised as CGI monsters as they compete for a $250,000 prize.
