Dancing on Ice judges Karen Barber, Robin Cousins, Nicky Slater and Ruthie Henshall got a little help judging the celebrities on the Dancing on Ice live tour last week – from me!
I went up to Sheffield last week to guest judge on the ice panel where I had to judge celebs including including Ray Quinn, Suzanne Shaw, Zoe Salmon and Chris Fountain infront of the 8,000 strong crowd! I caught up with Jayne Torvill afterwards for a glass of vino and she told me she’s looking forward to a break after the grueling 39 date tour. Jayne said: “This tour’s been months in the making – and Chris and myself have been working flat out since September with the show so we are ready for a break after this. The live tour’s been amazing though so far. Tickets have sold well and it’s bigger and better than ever before.”
Jayne, 51, who looks great in real life, added she’s been having to keep her energy up despite her stringent diet. After all Jayne did lose two stone and four dress sizes to shape up for the last couple of TV shows! She added: “I don’t mix carbs and protein at all – but the tour is hard and if I’m needing more energy then I am upping my protein a little. But I’m finding keeping my figure fairly easy right now – I’m trainging and skating so much so it’s easy. Whether it happens when I go back to being a mother to two young children is another thing!” Good luck Jayne!
