The Dancing on Ice Live UK Tour will be skating back across arenas around the country next year and tickets are set to go on sale earlier than originally announced.

Starring the legendary Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean and, following a four year break, the spectacular new show will perform across the UK throughout March and April 2018.

Tickets for the live extravaganza will go on sale at 8am on Friday, November 24. Joining Torvill and Dean on tour will be a host of celebrities and professional skaters from the new Dancing on Ice series, which starts on ITV in January.

Jayne and Chris will host the tour once more and take up their new roles as head judges. The King and Queen of Ice will be on hand to give their expert critical feedback and their all-important scores to the celebrities and their skating partners.

In addition to the scores from the Ice Panel Judges, arena audiences can text vote from their mobile phones for their favourite skating couple. Audience votes will then be added to the scores from the Judges to decide the overall celebrity winning couple. They will then take to the ice to perform a magical finale.

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean said: "We are delighted that Dancing on Ice Live is touring again next year. We really enjoyed hosting the last tour in 2014, so we’ll be doing that again, plus we’re taking on our new roles as head judges. The tour has struck such a huge chord with audiences around the country ever since it began in 2007 and we can’t wait to be back on the road in 2018, with a bigger and better live show for all the family to enjoy."

The 27-show spectacular will visit some of the biggest entertainment venues across the UK, with the tour culminating at Arena Birmingham on April 15 April.
