The Olympic Gold medal winners, now aged 60 and 59 respectively, say they have always used the city's MK Blades - the Nike and Adidas of the skating world.

And they have been working on their comeback routines with secret rehearsals at iceSheffield before an incredible end of series TV show performance of The Impossible Dream.

Joining them on the tour will be champs Jake Quickenden and Vanessa Bauer, Kem Cetinay and Alexandra Murphy, Max Evans and Ale Izquierdo, Alex Beresford and Brianne Delcourt, Cheryl Baker and Dan Whiston, Donna Air and Mark Hanretty, plus two-time former DOI champion Ray Quinn and Alexandra Schauma, along with professional skaters Matt Evers, Sylvain Longchambon and Lukasz Rozycki.

They will skate for the votes of the tour judging panel, which includes Denise Van Outen. The audience also gets to vote by text to produce a different winner each night.

M any of the show's stars also skate on MK Blades. With a factory at Neepsend, the company can trace its business back more than 300 years - it has made skates for King William III, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Now it is making for today's ice royalty.

Christopher Dean said: "We are skating on Sheffield steel, absolutely, on MK Blades - we always have and most probably always will.

"It's been 34 years sine we won the gold medal in 1984 on February 14 - for everybody else it's Valentine's Day. But we always say it is Bolero Day."

So will they be performing the Bolero on tour?

"The only think we can say is we are going to be skating, presenting and judging - then after that we are going to make the ice and switch the lights off," laughed Chris.

Jayne added: "We're excited to get back on the ice. We've missed it - it's what we've been doing for most of our lives.

"We are going to be in big arenas again with a bigger ice surface than we use on TV - it's amazing to see how fast some of our skaters can actually skate - especially when the pros come on and do their thing. I think people are going to be wowed."
