Ice and easy does it for TV show’s stars

The first celebrities to join the Dancing on Ice Final Tour 2014 have been announced.

The line-up includes three former winners of the Dancing on Ice ITV show: 2009 winner Ray Quinn, 2010 winner Hayley Tamaddon and 2007 champion Kyran Bracken.

They will also be joined on the tour by comedian Joe Pasquale. More celebrities will be announced soon.

The tour, which visits Capital FM Arena Nottingham on April 8-10, 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 rink-side 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.

West End star and singer Ray Quinn said: “I’ve had some amazing highlights in my career and winning Dancing on Ice in 2009 is certainly one of the best! I am thrilled to be able to continue my time on the ice and be part of the tour. I’m buzzing to be able to put on a great show for fantastic audiences around the country.”

Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon commented: “Dancing on Ice is a huge part of my life and to be on the final tour is a real honour. Having performed on the tour before, I know just how great the arena shows are and the fantastic support you get from the audiences across the UK .”

Comedian Joe Pasquale added: “Dancing on Ice is a great show and I’m really looking forward to joining Torvill And Dean and the other celebs on the UK tour!”
