Ice stars set for Olympic show

Dancing On Ice bosses have planned a special Olympic show to celebrate the Games this year.

Judges Katarina Witt and Robin Cousins and show mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean - who are all Olympic gold medallists - will get their skates on for Dancing On Ice With Olympians, reports The Sun.

TV bosses are said to be thrilled that they've got the four champions to sign up for the one-off programme.

A source said: "Luckily they have agreed, so we've got a belter of a show lined up. Jayne and Chris are spearheading the routine that is likely to see them all dance together."

Katarina, who has been getting attention for her plunging necklines on the talent show, apparently hasn't skated for four years.

The insider said: "It will be great for Katarina to skate as she hasn't really been on the ice since 2008. Robin is also nervous as he hasn't been on the ice for years either."

Robin scooped gold in the mens' singles in 1980 while Katarina bagged ladies' single gold in the 1984 and 1988 winter games. Torvill and Dean took home the top prize in the ice dance category for their Bolero performance in 1984.
