Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice
Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice was an Australian reality television series which was based on the original British version, Dancing on Ice. The series premiered on the Nine Network on Tuesday, 11 July 2006 at 7:30 pm, and involved celebrities ice dancing on a specially constructed ice rink located in Sydney’s north-west suburbs. The series ran for one season before being axed, and the winner of the competition was model Jake Wall. The series reportedly cost several million dollars to produce, but only regularly managed above-average ratings at best. A reunion special which would feature all ten celebrities talking about their experiences on the show, and answering questions from a live studio audience, as well as Torvill and Dean themselves making a very special guest appearance in the studio congratulating the contestants, hosts and indeed, home viewers for voting, had been planned, but that too was cancelled following the show’s axing.
