Singer Gareth Gates is set to melt hearts as he dazzles on ice in Sheffield.

The former Pop Idol star is set to get his skates on for ITV show Dancing on Ice’s UK tour, celebrating its final series.

He is set to wow crowds at the Motorpoint Arena alongside Winter Olympics legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, and fellow past contestants, from April 15 to 17.

Ex-champions taking to the rink in Attercliffe will also include The X Factor’s Ray Quinn and rugby hero Kyran Bracken, while more celebrities are expected to be added to the bill as opening night draws nearer.

Gareth said: “I’ve loved this series, so I’m glad I don’t have to hang up my skates just yet – I can’t wait to get on the tour and skate all around the country. We’re going to have a lot of fun.”

Kyran said: “We’ve got some great routines lined up for arena audiences and I can’t wait to perform for them again.”

Tickets, priced between £35.75 and £63.25, are on sale now and can be purchased at the Arena box office or online through the ticket hotline. Family tickets are also available – visit or call 0114 256 5656.
