Phillip Schofield And Christine Bleakley To Skate On Final 'Dancing On Ice'?

After presiding over all the ice rink action for the last eight years, Phillip Schofield could finally be getting his skates on with co-host Christine Bleakley to celebrate the final series of 'Dancing On Ice'.

Christopher Dean - one half of the show's resident skating experts, Torvill and Dean - has hinted the pair could perform a routine to celebrate the show's conclusion.

He told The Mirror: “It would be a real shame if the show’s hosts Phillip and Christine didn’t skate at least once.

"If we keep saying it would be nice to see them on the ice then they may feel pressured to do it.

“I think Christine would be up for it, the problem is convincing Phillip. Come on Phillip – do it.”

However, Phillip previously claimed he had been "banned" from taking to the ice after his skills proved to be less than impressive.

He said on 'This Morning': “I went on to the ice on our first series during a Friday rehearsal and I had a bit of a skate, had a stumble.

“I looked up and there was a line of suits standing there, who all beckoned me off the ice and said, ‘Health and safety, you can’t do that, you’re not insured’ and that has stood all the way through.

"Christine also wanted to get on the ice and she’s not allowed to either.”

Here's hoping for another Todd Carty-style moment.
