We interrupt our regular #WhereAreTheyNowWednesday programming to bring you some very exciting news about our 2014 alumnus, Matej Silecky! Matej, a graduate from the University of California, Berkeley, was Highly Commended in the Gender Studies & Anthropology category for his paper "Satoyama in the City: How this Concept and Green Roofs can be used to Promote Sustainability in Urban Areas".

Matej, a professional figure skating instructor, is joining a cast of pros who will be helping some famous faces as they hit the rink in the new series of ITV's Dancing on Ice. Matej will be partnering with Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent in the show, which sees twelve famous faces take to the ice to dance and dazzle their way to glory with the help of their instructors. Viewers can watch Matej and Brooke in action from this Sunday, 7th January, at 6pm, on ITV (UK) or TV3 (Ireland).  

Matej Silecky debuts on ITV/TV3's Dancing on Ice this Sunday at 6PM GMT!
