    Dancing on Ice fans will be delighted to learn that the final celebrity and pro-skater line-up for 2018 Dancing On Ice: Live UK Tour has been announced! 

    Donna Air and Mark Hanretty will once again take to ice and join other stars from the current ITV series: X Factor star Jake Quickenden and Vanessa Bauer; Kem Cetinay and Alexandra Murphy; rugby ace Max Evans and Ale Izquierdo; Alex Beresford and Brianne Delcourt; Bucks Fizz legend Cheryl Baker and Dan Whiston; and two-time former Dancing on Ice champion Ray Quinn and Alexandra Schauman.

    The couples will skate for the votes of the tour judging panel of Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Denise Van Outen who will join the ice panel hot on the heels of her judging duties on Ireland’s Got Talent. And as an extra added bonus, skating legends Torvill and Dean will be performing for arena audiences for the first time in four years. The tour also will feature professional skaters Matt Evers, Sylvain Longchambon and Lukasz Rozycki.  

    Jake Quickenden has wowed both fans and the judges on the ITV show with his impressive skating which has seen him top of the leaderboard three times since the series began. Jake said: 'This show has been such an amazing experience, so being asked to go on the live tour is awesome! I genuinely wasn’t expecting to be top of the leaderboard ever, let alone three times, so being able to go on the road to thank all those people who kept me there is such an honour.'

    Cheryl Baker hasn’t had such an easy time since taking to the ice, but has entertained viewers with her best efforts and quick-witted responses to the judges’ comments. Cheryl said: 'I love going on tour with The Fizz, so going on the road and seeing all the Dancing On Ice fans around the country is going to be so much fun! Hopefully, my skating skills will have improved by then too!'

    Max Evans has proved he’s just as fast on the ice as the rugby pitch, impressing the TV Ice Panel with his skating week after week. Max said: 'Being asked to be on the live tour is incredible and totally unexpected, but I am thrilled to continue my skating all over the UK.'

    Dancing On Ice: Live UK Tour will open at The SSE Arena, Wembley on 23 March for the first of 27 shows.  It will then visit some of the biggest entertainment venues across the UK, including the Manchester Arena culminating at the Birmingham Arena on 15 April.
