Dancing On Ice: Going For Gold

Jane%20Torvill%20and%20Christopher%20Dean%20

Torvill & Dean are preparing to invite a host of Olympic heroes to go head to head for the first time… on ice.

Dancing On Ice: Going For Gold will see inspirational athletes swap their track suits for
sequins and Lycra as they take to the rink to perform in front of a live studio audience.

This unique TV special will also see Torvill & Dean unveil a new and specially-crafted performance. And in a TV exclusive, Dancing On Ice judge Robin Cousins will perform a solo routine for first time in twelve years, in celebration of this iconic sporting event.

The stars going head to head include:

- Colin Jackson CBE: Team GB 2012 Ambassador and silver medal winner in the 110m Hurdles at the Seoul Olympics 1988

- Olga Korbut, the ‘Mother of Gymnastics’ and winner of 4 gold and 2 silver medals, 1972 Munich and 1976 Montreal

- Tessa Sanderson CBE (Team GB 2012 Ambassador), won gold for javelin in 1984

- Pippa Wilson MBE, won gold for Yngling sailing, 2008 Beijing

- Jamie Baulch, won silver in 4 x400m relay, Athens 1996

- Steve Williams OBE, won gold in Coxless Four Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008

- Gail Emms MBE, won silver in badminton mixed doubles, Athens 2004

The one-off special pays homage to their sporting achievements as we take a look back at the iconic moment these stars achieved their Olympic glory.

Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will be rinkside to present this unique special. The ice
panel, Robin Cousins, Katarina Witt and Louie Spence will be ready and waiting to deliver their
verdicts. Head coach Karen Barber returns to offer her expertise and support to the show’s
sporting stars.

Dancing On Ice mentors Torvill and Dean will have only a few weeks to get our Olympic
medallists on track to perform a skating routine in front of an audience. The sporting stars have
been top of the Leaderboard in their chosen field but will they impress the audience and viewers
at home with their skating skills or fail to hit the top spot?

Hmm *scratches chin* Really? They're making it sound as if they've only just come up with this idea, which seems a little bit unlikely...

I like the fact that it's sportsmen and women who are competing and not soap/reality tv celebs.
