Dancing On Ice Will be Axed After Next Season

Yes, Dancing on Ice will be axed after next season, it’s now official. Watched by over 7 million viewers last year, you’d think it would go on forever, but Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, responsible to mentor young new dancers, have announced that they are leaving after one more season.

Dancing On Ice Axed

Popular TV series Dancing On Ice is to be axed after one further series, it was announced today.

The ITV series, which regularly pulls in more than seven million viewers, will be screened for the last time in early 2014.

Ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, who have been mentors on the show since it launched, announced it would be their final series this morning.

TV bosses are understood to have thought the show had reached the end of its natural life.

Speaking on ITV’s Daybreak Dean said they felt it was the right time to go as this year marks 30 years since their groundbreaking Bolero performance. He said: “It’s come full circle for us.

“We’ve had the most wonderful experience doingDancing On Ice and we just wanted to finish at the top of our game and for the show to be on top of its game so we just felt it was the right time.”

The show has been credited with reviving interest in ice skating around the UK and has had a successful spin-off tour.

Winners of the show – in which a celebrity teams up with a professional – have included Sam Attwater, Matthew Wolfenden and Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle who won this year’s contest.

Will you miss Dancing on Ice? I personally know many that will. Or is this just an elaborate publicity ploy in which ITV announces the show’s doom to the dismay of 7 million fans… only to relaunch it with two young new mentors the season after next?  Only time will tell!
