MAX Evans has found his strength and agility has translated from the rugby field to the ice rink.
But what else do we know about the sportsman? Here is the low down on him…
Who is Max Evans, how old is he and what is his background?
Max Evans is an Scottish rugby star, born in Torquay on September 12, 1983.
The 34-year-old is best-known for winning 44 caps for Scotland as a centre and a wing.
His brother Thom Evans, 32, is a pop star and former rugby player who was forced to retire aged 24 due to a neck injury, and is known for his relationship with Kelly Brook.
Max is also the cousin of radio DJ and failed Top Gear presenter Chris Evans.
He studied at Wellington College, Berkshire with James Haskell and Paul Doran-Jones, who went on to be his rugby teammates.
What are Max’s sporting achievements?
Max began his rugby career playing for the Harlequins academy side.
While recovering from back injury, Max also played golf professionally in Portugal from 2004-6.
He then played for Scotland from 2008 onwards and was a member of the Glasgow Warriors team, before joining Castres in 2011.
Currently, he is a free agent after being released from Castres in 2015.
Is Max single?
The hunk got married to American glamour model wife Katy, 29, in 2014 during a romantic ceremony in a barn in Rochester, Minnesota.
Max’s proposal took place in Paris, but Katy didn’t always find married life rosy as she felt she didn’t fit in with Scottish rugby WAGs.
When is Dancing On Ice on TV?
Dancing On Ice 2018 launched on January 7 at 6pm on ITV with a two-hour show, and continues every Sunday.
The show is said to have a “fresh look” as it rebrands after several years away from the screens.
Ice skating legend Jayne Torvill declared the show will need to up its game as reality TV has raised the bar over the past few years.
