Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice: The Live Tour is a nationwide tour in the United Kingdom. It began in 2007 following the success of the two series of smash-hit television series Dancing on Ice.

General information[edit]

During the second series of Dancing on Ice on ITV it was announced that the show would be taken on a UK arena tour. The tour would be presented by former contestant and Dancing on Ice Exclusive host Andi Peters and would feature contestants from all the UK and 1 Australian series of the show competing against each other for audience votes (cast via SMS). Each contestant performed two solo routines for the judges (one was scored by the judges) (Nicky Slater, Jason Gardiner, Karen Barber, Robin Cousins and a guest judges which varied at each location). The two couples with the most votes then proceeded into the 'Bolero Dance-Off'. Following the completion of the dance-off the judges would select a winner decided by a majority verdict. At the end of each show the winner received a trophy. The live show also featured numerous performances from Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean as well as the professional ice skaters (from the television series) and other special guests.

The Dancing on Ice Live Tour began on the 31 March 2007 and ended on 6 May 2007. Sheffield, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast and Newcastle were among the tour dates.
