It’s been on our screens for nine years now but it looks like it time to end!
Today Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean appeared on Daybreak to announced that Dancing On Ice will be coming to a end after next years series.
The 2014 series will also mark k the 30th anniversary of the pair’s Bolero routine,that they first performed at the 1984 Olympics.
Dean talked about the show saying:
‘Next year is going to be the final Dancing On Ice. It has come full circle for us.
‘It’s 30 years next year since we performed in Bolero on February 14th, Valentine’s Day, and we just thought it’s full circle.
‘We’ve had this wonderful experience and we just wanted to finish at the top of our game, and the show to be on top of its game.’
‘We’re not going to hang up our skates but we are going to slow them down. I think also because it’s been 30 years, it will also be our last Bolero.’
Talking to shows host Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones this morning Jayne then added:
‘Dancing On Ice has been absolutely fantastic for us. At the point that the show came around, we had thought we were going to retire, then here we were, able to tour again in front of huge audiences, so it’s been incredible.’
The ratings for the show where at a all time low last years so this could have something to do with the show being axed!
She’s been waking up the nation for years now but Daybreak‘s Lorraine Kelly has admitted that the breakfast show has a ‘long way to go’ after it reportedly lost 100,000 viewers last year.
Talking to Star Magazine the Scottish presenter said:’
We still have a long way to go but we’re heading in the right direction.’
‘We’re getting there but it won’t change over night. It’ll be a year before we can fully turn it around,’ the presenter added, staying positive about the future.
‘My 8.30am show is up year-on-year, and from 7.30 onwards, it’s better than it’s ever been,’ said the much-loved star.
‘There was too much change too soon,’ said Lorraine, discussing the switch from GMTV to Daybreak in 2010. ‘People like familiarity. I was still l there at 8.30am but everything else changed.’
A lot of people have said that they liked GMTV better than Daybreak and we have to say we agree.
Rita Ora has decided she want to go back to University!
You would that that she would want to concentrate on her music than going back to uni.
The singer was talking to Lorraine Kelly on Monday when she said that she promised her Dad that she would go back as she said:
”I got my first production credit when I was 14 and then it kind of escalated from there. I got signed at 18 so it came to the point where I could either finish university, or I could carry on and finish university later, which I promised my dad I would do, so I will do it.”
Rita also talked about her time on the X Factor as a judge:
”It was interesting, because I never understood it until I was sat there. I’d always watched it, but I don’t think anyone knows what it’s like until you sit on the panel” she said.
”So I sat there and I really thought that I could help somebody, it was a great feeling. I’ve never auditioned in front of millions of people, but I’ve auditioned for a few things.
”The good thing was I could just say yes to people that I loved, then I didn’t have to do the boot camp, so wouldn’t have to [let them down later]. But it was such a fun experience.”
