Dancing on Ice could make shock TV return

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Dancing on Ice’ is reportedly set to make a shock return to TV.
The ITV programme – which saw celebrities learn to figure skate – was once among the most-watched shows in the UK and it is rumoured to be on channel boss Kevin Lygo’s hitlist for the year.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Kevin always thought ITV axing ‘Dancing on Ice’ was a mistake so now the idea of bringing it back is being looked at.
“It was a smash hit, and even at its worst was still pulling in more than some of the shows currently on telly – particularly in the Sunday night slot.
“It’s very early days and nothing has been commissioned just yet but it’s definitely on the to-do list. A Sunday night slot would make a lot of sense.”
At the peak of its popularity, ‘Dancing on Ice’ – which was originally hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby – attracted 13 million viewers.
But its audience dwindled over time and it was scrapped altogether in 2014.
However, Kevin – who was appointed as ITV’s Director of Television earlier this year – claimed in 2016 that the broadcaster had made a mistaken in taking the programme off the air.
He previously said: “I think when ‘Dancing On Ice’ was cut, it was felt, ‘oh we need to refresh, it’s gone down a bit in the ratings’.
“I watched it, it was the most lovely family show and a really good feeling and distinctive and brilliantly produced, and actually I wish it had gone on a bit longer.”
‘Dancing on Ice’ could reportedly replace ‘Dance Dance Dance’, which is presented by Alesha Dixon.
