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.
