The four-week UK tour will kick off in Manchester on 28 March, and arena audiences will be in for a treat as they'll get to see skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean perform exclusive skating routines.

Olympic gold medal winner Robin Cousins will head the panel of rink-side judges, alongside former professional skaters Karen Barber and Nicky Slater. The three judges will be on hand to give expert feedback and give the celebrities their all-important scores.

The live tour will see the likes of Ray and Hayley travel to arenas in London, Newcastle, Nottingham, Glasgow, Sheffield and Birmingham, wrapping up in Leeds on 27 April.

It's set to be an exciting tour, as not only will fans see their favourite skating couples compete, but they can also vote for their winner via a text vote, which will be added to the judges' scores to decide the overall winner.

And whoever wins will have the honour of taking to the ice for a final performance of Torvill and Dean's Olympic-winning Bolero skate.

West End star and singer Ray Quinn said: "I've had some amazing highlights in my career and winning Dancing on Ice in 2009 is certainly one of the best! I am thrilled to be able to continue my time on the ice and be part of the tour. I'm buzzing to be able to put on a great show for fantastic audiences around the country."

This will be Torvill and Dean's last ever DOI tour.

Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon added: "Dancing on Ice is a huge part of my life and to be on the final tour is a real honour. Having performed on the tour before, I know just how great the arena shows are and the fantastic support you get from the audiences across the UK - see you on the road!"

Former England Rugby captain Kyran, who has appeared on some of the show's previous tours, said he was "delighted" to be back. He added: "We've got some great routines lined up for the arena audiences and I can't wait to perform for them again."

Meanwhile, Joe said: "Wow, I'm getting ready to get my skates on again! Dancing on Ice is a great show and I'm really looking forward to joining Torvill & Dean and the other celebs on the UK tour. Roll on 28th March!"
