Bonnie had torrid time ahead of return to the ice

Bonnie Langford was in the first series of Dancing on Ice, when she came third.

She says she was very reluctant to return for the final swan-song, having not skated for nine years since, but that Christopher Dean was very persuasive and promised her a free cappuccino every day.

Bonnie, who is 49, is well known for her seamless West-End roles, in the musicals Cats, Chicago and Peter Pan.

Things have not been so smooth this time around though. Two weeks ago her partner Matt was injured and is now out of the show, meaning she has had to form a quick bond with new partner Andrei Lipanov.

Why Todd Carty hopes to be remembered for the right reasons in the last Dancing on Ice

Todd Carty is not one of the favourites to win the final series of ITV's "Dancing on Ice", after coming ninth in 2009.

However the moment when he flew off the stage into the wings has been voted as one of the funniest moments in television.

50 year-old Todd says he is remembered more for that moment than anything in his acting career. He is best known for playing Tucker Jenkins in Grange Hill and Mark Fowler in EastEnders.

He says this time round he is not falling over as much and that "there is no going back now".


Sam Attwater feeling the effects of training for Dancing on Ice

Former EastEnders actor, Sam Attwater, says everything is "hurting" now after weeks of intensive training for Dancing on Ice.

The 27 year-old believes that it is the potential danger element of the performances that keep audiences tuned in. He says that this year, much more will be expected of the contestants.

Sam won the series in 2011 and during the tour that followed met professional skater Vicky Ogden, who is now his fiancee. They will be skating together this series, but he insists that "what happens on the ice stays on the ice".

Suzanne Shaw excited ahead of final series

Former Hear'Say singer Suzanne Shaw age 32, describes herself as a "fearless adrenaline junkie" ahead of this years final series of Dancing on Ice.

The singer and actress who most recently starred in Emmerdale, won the title in 2008 and is keen to prove that she can do it again.

This year's final show will also be a poignant one for Suzanne because she lost her father a year ago.

She said he thought Dancing on Ice was her best ever job, and would watch her every week with a beaming smile on his face. Suzanne says "I hope he'll be looking down and spurring me on".
