'Dancing On Ice': Phillip Schofield And Christine Bleakley To Take To The Ice For Axed Ice Skating Show's Final

'Dancing On Ice' hosts Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will be showing off their own ice skating skills when they take to the ice for the show's final ever show on Sunday.

After months of rumours, it's been confirmed that Philip and Christine will also be joined for a special routine by judges Jason Gardiner, Ashley Roberts, Karen Barber and Robin Cousins.

The presenters and judges have spent the last few weeks learning the routine during secret training sessions.

A source told The Sun: “Fans have wanted Phillip to get his skates on for the past nine years but he has always refused because he doesn’t really fancy slipping over and breaking something.

“But after months of arm-twisting by producers, Phillip has finally agreed to give it a whirl. It should be hilarious TV. With Torvill and Dean doing their last ever performance of the Bolero too, it could be one of the show’s most memorable episodes.”

'Dancing On Ice', which started in 2006, once attracted 13million viewers but ITV decided to axe the show last year after ratings plummeted.
