Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will skate on "Dancing On Ice" next week.

The former British, European, Olympic and World champions have confirmed they will take to the ice during next Sunday night's (27.01.19) show.

Teasing viewers about their appearance next week, the duo smiled as hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby confirmed the pair would take to the ice - but details about their performance are being kept quiet and they didn't reveal any more.

The duo have always danced on the show since its inception in 2006 but over the years, they danced less and less and during last year's show, which was won by singer and television star Jake Quickenden, they only performed once to "The Impossible Dream".

Earlier this series, Phillip questioned Jayne if they would perform on the show, asking her: "Jayne, a lot of people are asking, so I'm going to ask you now for the first time. Will you guys be skating this year?"

Fans will be no doubt hoping the pair will dance their famous Bolero routine, which saw them win medals at the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics.

Meanwhile, host Holly previously credited the success of the ITV show to coaches-turned-judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

She explained: "I think it's very much due to the power of Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, because they are such a British institution, they're legends in their own right. To be taught by those two or to have them as part of the show is such a unique experience. I think that's why people still really want to do it."
