Dancing on Ice to finish in 2014




After eight years on our screens ITV, Jayne  Torvill and Christopher Dean today announced that the 2014 series of Dancing on Ice will be the last.

ITV’s Director of Television, Peter Fincham said: “Dancing on Ice has been a firm favourite with viewers and we all have every intention of going out on a high next year.”

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean said: “Next year will be the 30th anniversary of Bolero and our Olympic Gold medal in Sarajevo and for us, it seemed a fitting time to say goodbye to Dancing on Ice.  We wanted to go out on a high.  We have loved every minute of the eight series and we’re determined to make our final series the best ever."

For those of you fretful to see Torvill and Dean hanging up their skates, fear not. The skating duo went on to reveal: "Skating will very definitely continue for us both. There will also be a final Dancing on Ice live UK arena tour, starting in March next year. We are already planning it and there will be some great surprises for audiences across the country.”

Peter Fincham added: "Torvill & Dean are the most successful ice dancing partnership of our generation and brought huge integrity, skill and professionalism to the show and with their departure, it feels like the series has reached its natural end."

The final series of Dancing on Ice will be back in January 2014 to warm up your winter nights and promises to be the biggest and best ever. Get ready for more of your favourite celebrities performing sensational skating routines with top choreography and lots of surprises.

What a shame as it's my favourite celeb show, but not a surprise really.
 
Wonder what crap will replace it though.

I decided not to watch again after the Gareth debacle...

but I might do if it's going to be the last one.

I have always loved this show ever since the 2006 Aussie version was on. Matt Evers has always been my favourite skater and he has been in every series as including the Aussie version. I have only seen the 2010 & 2011 series on pay TV here. ITV wouldn't allow the 2012 or 2013   series to be shown here. I have bought all available DVDs of the series and tours through Amazon UK. I will have to make sure I get next year's tour DVD.

Was it really that bad Jo? I'll have to read the thread on that.

It was unacceptable for me.
 
Gareth wasn't able to fly without being sick...
yet he was pushed right up until the last minute.
 
Eventually he felt so ill he could hardly stand up.
 
I don't know why T&D didn't put a stop to it.

I barely watched the last series and to be honest I think this is the right decision. It's felt like a show running out of steam for a couple of years to me.

I suppose it's too much to hope that for the 30th anniversary of Sarajevo, ITV might show the original routine instead of making poor old T&D do a "new" take? It'd guarantee them this "casual" viewer at least!

He was ill for the best part of the week afterwards too.  It was such a shame as I really think he would have won it if he'd gone through.

Totally agree eviesmum. Voting figures for the semis prove it.
I wonder if the producers were worried he might topple Beth.

Well after what happened in the Series gone by, this is no surprise really. I used to love this show but I'll be glad to see the back of it when it's over.
