The final series of Dancing On Ice is to be an all-star special featuring past finalists and contestants from earlier runs.
The ninth series will be screened early next year with Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley returning as hosts.
Olympic skating stars Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will again train the celebrities and will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their gold-medal winning Bolero routine. Schofield said:
"Viewers are in for an absolute treat this year. I'm over the moon we'll be welcoming back to the ice some of our very best skaters and characters from over the years"
Legendary ice dance duo Torvill and Dean are competing against each other in a dance competition - off the ice rink.
The Dancing On Ice stars will swap ice skates for ballroom dance shoes when they pair up with Strictly Come Dancing's James Jordan and Aliona Vilani in a one-off performance for the BBC's Children in Need appeal next month.
With a glitterball in the shape of Pudsey Bear at stake, the figure-skating champions will have a week to learn a routine, which they'll each perform to a medley of tunes.
Their dance-off will be screened during the Children in Need appeal show on November 15, during an evening-long broadcast that will also include an appearances from One Direction and a special Doctor Who segment.
