Dancing on Ice is a British television show, in which celebrities and their professional partners figure skate in front of a panel of judges. The format, devised by LWT, has been a prime-time hit in eight different countries, including Italy and Chile. In Australia, where it was titled Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice, it was axed after just one series.

Originally titled Skating With Celebrities the show was renamed following the failure of ITV's celebrity orientated 2005 summer schedule. Dancing on Ice is frequently compared to BBC's Strictly Come Dancing. The show was given a January premier amidst network doubts about its visibility but became a surprise hit in Britain, where it became the third highest rated television show of 2006. It attained an impressive thirteen million viewers for the final in March.

Britain's best-known ice-skating duo and former Olympic champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean help to train the aspiring dancers, and also appear throughout the show with comments and advice. Judge Karen Barber also trains the skaters for the live show.[1] Since the beginning Torvill and Dean have opened every episode with a performance, with the exception of the second, third and fourth shows of the fourth series, when Torvill performed alone due to Dean's recovery from a shoulder operation.

The show is presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, with commentary from Tony Gubba and the voiceovers are done by John Sachs (previously Marc Silk in series 1 and Bob Lawrence in series 2 and 3). The members of The Ice Panel are Karen Barber, Jason Gardiner, Nicky Slater and Robin Cousins, the fifth judge has varied from series to series: Karen Kresge in the first series, Natalia Bestemianova in the second, Ruthie Henshall in the third and fourth and Emma Bunton in the fifth.

During the shows first two series it ran two supplementary programmes - Dancing on Ice Defrosted presented by Stephen Mulhern, and Dancing on Ice Exclusive (or Dancing on Ice Extra during its first series) hosted by Andi Peters alongside Andrea McLean in series one and Ben Shephard in series two. In mid 2007, it was announced that both shows would not return to accompany the third series as the audience attracted is out of ITV2's target range.[2]

As part of ITV's new revamped schedule at the start of 2008, from the third series, the show now aired on a Sunday night and featured updated music and new titles as well as redesigned graphics. The third series finale was a massive draw for ITV pulling an average 11.7 million viewers (up from 9.6 million the previous year) peaking at 12.6 million viewers over the two hour slot, up over a million from season two.[3]

The fourth series began on 11 January 2009.[4] The show has also been commissioned up until 2011 with Torvill and Dean as coaches for which they will be paid £250,000 each series.[5]

Contents

Format

Each week the celebrities and their partners perform a live ice dance routine. The five judges (commonly known as the Ice Panel) judge each performance and give a mark between 0.0 and 6.0, depending on the performance. These total scores create a leaderboard which combines with the public vote in order to determine the two lowest placed couples. As this is the case, the pair with the lowest score from the judges can avoid being in the bottom two if the public vote for them.

Once the scores and votes are combined to form the final leaderboard for that week's show, the two couples at the bottom compete in a final showdown known as the "Skate Off", where they perform their routine again. Once both couples have performed their routines for the judging panel, the five judges decide on who deserves to stay and cast their votes, based on their second performance. The couple with the most votes from the judges receives a place in the following week's show, while the couple with the least votes leaves the competition.

Spin-offs

Like many other reality TV shows, Dancing on Ice has had a number of supplementary shows. The first was Dancing on Ice Defrosted. It was presented by Stephen Mulhern and aired on ITV2 immediately after the main ITV1 show and again after the results show. The show featured opinions from celebrity guests and past contestants as well as from Torvill and Dean, the judges, hosts and competitors. Judge Nicky Slater also offered in-depth analysis of various performances using the latest video technology that the judges use to judge performances.

The second spin-off show was originally called Dancing on Ice Extra and was presented by Andi Peters and Andrea McLean, both competitors in the first series. Midway through the first series Paul O'Grady left ITV to join Channel 4 meaning that ITV had no show to put on air at 5pm. The format of Dancing on Ice Defrosted;; was modified so that it could be broadcast every weekday. Due to Andrea's maternity leave during the second series she did not return to present the show and therefore Ben Shephard joined the show as the anchor presenter, and, unlike during the previous, series Andi Peters was now a roving reporter around the studio. For its second run the show was renamed Dancing on Ice Exclusive.

Neither of these first two spin-off shows returned in 2008 nor 2009.

In 2010 it was announced that a new spin-off show would accompany Dancing on Ice, named Dancing on Ice Friday, hosted by Ben Shephard and Coleen Nolan.

Champion of Champions

This took place on Saturday 24 March 2007 and featured finalists from both Series 1 and Series 2. All six celebrities did one routine each, scored by the judges, and then voted on by the public. The two couples finishing first after the public voted skated again in the skate off to decide the winner. The skaters that did not reach the skate off - 3rd to 6th - were announced "in no particular order", so ranks may not be accurate.

Dancing on Ice: Make Me a Star

A 30-minute prime time spin-off to Dancing on Ice premiered on 26 January 2008 and ran for a few episodes, hosted solely by Holly Willoughby. This both showed some exclusive footage of the celebrities training for the Sunday night main show and followed Torvill and Dean on the search for a member of the public to perform on the Dancing on Ice final in 2009.[12] Shows:

Dancing on Ice: Ice Star

This was shown after the announcement of the bottom two had been made but before the skate off. It showed Torvill and Dean's search for an antertainment act on ice, with auditions from all kinds of ice skaters. The winner skated live on the Dancing on Ice 2009 final and join Torvill and Dean on tour.

From a shortlist of 20 acts, Torvill and Dean invited only 4 back to give another performance in the Dancing on Ice studio. The final 4 were:

The judges taking Jason Gardiner and Emma Bunton's spaces are David Ichor and Carla Tipovi. The aim of the game is to reach the final of the hit show to win, by attempting to score the highest points from the judges, and the most votes from the public, in a minigame completely controlled by you. The game starts off on the main menu, the three modes are: The Show, Exhibition and Multiplayer. The required elements include favorites like: Toe Step Sequence, Pairs Spiral, An Unassisted Jump, A Solo Skate, THE DREADED HEADBANGER, Prop week (hats and chairs), and of course, flying. All of these comments are from a source who helped create the game, and the dates are listed correctly from Amazon, Game, Play, ASDA, CD WOW and the creators of the game, Ghostlight themselves. There is also a DS game to come out on the 23rd of April 2010.
