Cheggers and skating partner in the studio

Click video. He started out life as a children's television presenter in the 70s, his sister is a famous DJ - and his grace on the ice rink sent Pamela Anderson packing!

Keith Chegwin - who lives on the Berkshire/Hampshire - was, of course, last seen on our screens on ITV's Dancing on Ice. He was in the very capable hands of his skating partner Olga Sharutenko - and the two almost went all the way! They're chatting to Fred and Sangeeta.

ITV’s Director of Television Peter Fincham said:“Dancing on Ice has been a firm favourite with viewers since it launched eight years ago and we all have every intention of going out on a high next year.

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean said: “Next year will be the 30th anniversary of Bolero and our Olympic Goldmedal 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. It has been a real pleasure to work on one ofthe UK’s biggest and best loved entertainment shows."

Dancing On Ice is an ITV Studios Production. The final series will be broadcast in Jan 2014 & promises to be the biggest & best ever, with some of the biggest names in entertainment performing elaborate skating routines, more top choreography & nail biting new format twists.

Cheggers on Ice... and Pamela

Television personality Keith Chegwin really was skating on thin ice in ITV's Dancing on Ice last week. After a nerve-tingling skate-off he was saved only by the casting vote of chief judge Robin Cousins.

It was the second time that Keith had faced the dreaded Save Me Skate ordeal. In the very first show he narrowly survived to skate another day, putting paid to the hopes of some glamorous opposition. Divya Kohli speaks to Cheggers and his partner Olgo Sharutenko.
