  • I have been waiting for this for nearly a year since the previous season finished and boy it was worth the wait in my eyes!

    When I seen the advert that dancing on ice would be coming back I was excited beyond all belief, I couldnt wait for it to come back to our screens. This show takes celebrities of all ages and job descriptions and takes them out of their comfort zone and throws them into something challenging and different.

    The line up for this season is an interesting one as there are people on there who havent been seen in a long time as they have either retired from TV, gone on to radio shows or you get to watch the most nights/days in programs you normally watch.

    Torvill and Dean done a spectacular opening routing it is great to see them 2 back in the public eye performing with each other once again, along with some other famous ice dancing stars from all over the world. Its nice to see celebrity judges there also to give a little idea of what people are supposed to be looking for and enjoying in their new experience.

    Although this was the first week for them, and some of them had little time to practise due to having an injury early on in the training sessions they all done pretty darn well and should be proud of themselves, no one deserved to go last week but unfortunatley someone did have to go and Sarah Greene took the plunge first. It is a little disappointing to see her leave in the first week as we will never get to see what else she can do whilst she is on the ice but its the others I am also interested in.

    Chris fountain the hollyoaks actor done an excellent job in his routine with his partner Frankie, he was explosive and refreshing to dancing on ice as no one has performed as well as him on the opening night. Michael underwood the GMTV presenter also done very well in the opening night, also done a very good job to hold his professional partner up as she stumbled on her toes.

    I didnt think too much to Aggie, but there again is that me being prejudice towards her because of her age ? I dont think she will perform very well, as she took a few knocks and bumps in the training sessions and suffered from the fear, I will be very surprised if she does anything challenging in weeks to come, but that doesnt mean i want her out.

    Linda lucardi looked beautiful and was also good on the ice on her first performance even after she broke her ankle in training. She took the time to make a come back and do a really good job lets hope she amounts to something better in the coming weeks. Steve bakley, well im not too sure about him I mean he was a great sportsman in his day but should he really be on the ice when he has had a hip replacement ? On the whole this episode was well worth the wait and I can not wait to tune into the show which is tomorrow evening on ITV1 I will be watching it with great interest to see who is going to get further and possibly gain an advantage over the rest.moreless
