Tamaddon vows to give away trophy

Former Emmerdale actress, Hayley Tamaddon, has promised to give her skating partner Dan Whiston the Dancing On Ice trophy if she wins the final on Sunday rather than keep it herself.

The pair have been friends since childhood, and won the trophy together in 2010 before reuniting for this year's final champion of champions series.

But Whiston has never won an award of his own, despite being crowned king of the ice three times during the programme's run, as the professionals do not receive a trophy. The final of the last series of Dancing On Ice is screened at 7pm on Sunday on ITV.

Dancing on Ice tour to come to the region

The coolest show on television, Dancing on Ice the live tour, comes to the region for the very last time next month.

A host of celebrities have signed up for the finale including Bradford's Gareth Gates and former Emmerdale actress Suzanne Shaw.

Dancing on Ice bows out

Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill

After eight years on our screens ITV, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean today announced nest year's 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.”

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."

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.”

The final series of Dancing on Ice will be back in January 2014.
