Stars take to the ice again for tour

The Dancing on Ice Final Live Tour 2014 visits Nottingham Capital FM Arena from April 8-10.

The tour stars skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. Arena audiences will get to see Torvill And Dean perform exclusive mesmerising skating routines, created for the live tour.

Olympic gold medal winner Robin Cousins will head the panel of rinkside judges, alongside former professional skaters Karen Barber and Nicky Slater. They will be on hand to give their expert feedback and all important scores to the celebrities and their skating partners.

Fans will see their favourite skating couples competing live for the judges’ votes and the audience can use their mobile phones to text vote for their favourite celebrity to win.

Audience votes will then be added to the scores from the judges to decide the overall celebrity winner. The winning couple will then take to the ice for a magical finale performance of Bolero.

Among those appearing are Britain’s greatest ever female gymnast Beth Tweddle, Broadway and West End theatre star Bonnie Langford, actress Suzanne Shaw and comedian Joe Pasquale, plus Hayley Tamaddon, Ray Quinn and Kyran Bracken.

Beth Tweddle said: “I’m excited to be joining the tour, having had such a wonderful experience on the TV show. I absolutely love skating and want to continue for as long as I can.

“Having competed as a gymnast for over 12 years, learning to skate has been a challenge, but one that I’ve loved and I can’t wait to perform some of my favourite routines in front of the live audiences across the country!”

Bonnie Langford added: “Having been in the first series of Dancing on Ice, nine years ago and the final series, I’m thrilled to be going back on tour with Torvill & Dean. I had a ball last time round, so I’m delighted to be able to relive the magic of the TV show in front of arena audiences across the country.”
