After wowing over a million people across the country in previous years with stunning ice performances, skating legends Jayne Torvill & Christopher Dean will embark on a fifth live UK tour of Dancing on Ice starting at the Motorpoint Arena on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th April 2011. Tickets are now on sale priced Ice side £67.50 (Saturday evening) £57.50 (all other performances), Tiers £42.50/£32.50 (subject to booking fee).
This year’s tour features more celebrity skaters from the current ITV1 series than ever before.
Torvill & Dean will be joined by bookie’s favourite EastEnders actor Sam Attwater, alongside TV presenter Chloe Madeley, Chris Moyles’ sidekick Comedy Dave Vitty, children’s TV presenter Laura Hamilton, Coronation Street and Loose Women’s Denise Welch, singing legend Vanilla Ice and Victoria Cross winner Johnson Beharry who all currently star on the hit TV show. The tour will also see the welcome return of Dancing on Ice 2010 winner, actress Hayley Tamaddon.
TV personality and one time ’King of the Jungle’ Christopher Biggins who debuted as a judge on 2010 tour, returns to the panel alongside skating gold medallist and TV judge Robin Cousins and head skating coach from the ITV series, Karen Barber. Popular TV presenter Andi Peters also returns to host the tour.
All of the celebrities will be trained and choreographed by Torvill & Dean, who will also perform routines choreographed exclusively for the live tour. One further celebrity skater will be announced soon.
The four-week UK tour starting in Sheffield, will also travel to Newcastle, Birmingham, Nottingham, London and Manchester. At each performance the audience can vote for their favourite celebrity skater. Using the same format as the hit ITV1 show, spectators can use their mobile phones to text vote for their
favourite celebrity. Audience votes will then be added to scores from the Judges to decide the overall celebrity winner. The winning couple then take to the ice for a magical finale performance. As with previous tours, all profits from text voting will go to charity. More than £100,000 has been raised to date and has been donated to the Royal London Society For The Blind and Demelza Hospice Care for Children.
