Afraid to say the semi-final will include a flying routine, while Torvill and Dean will perform a new version of Let's Face the Music and Dance.

Toots - ratings this year are still falling and it isn't getting any kind of bounce from being the last series or an All Star series.   A few here might have criticisms of Torvill and Dean's choreography but as far as a mass audience is concerned it would struggle without them.   They might get away with it if they rest it a few years then returned without T&D, but even then I think it would struggle.

If anything I think a non-celeb show looking for solo skaters (or to form a partnership) utilising Robin Cousins would be the best way to follow it up - but that would still struggle IMO.

Disagree Brekkie.

Initially I watched the show because of T&D but not anymore.
Now I think they're the main reason the show has lost viewers.

They anchor the show in the past... to an event 30 years ago.
There's too much emphasis on them and in particular the Bolero.

I hope DOI will relaunch without them... maybe after a break.

New presenters. New judges (Keep Robin). Well known celebs.
Pros who can choreo. Required elements. A sister show.

If Strictly can be so successful... Why not DOI?

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
