Dancing on Ice is one of Britain’s favourite shows and over the years, countless celebrities have taken to the ice to try and impress the beloved Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, as well as the British public. With the current series now in full swing, we’ve taken a look at some of the best and worst moments that have occurred on the show over the years.
Pamela Anderson's wardrobe malfunction
In 2013, Baywatch sensation Pamela Anderson showed Dancing on Ice viewers a little bit more skin than they hoped for when she had an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction during one of her performances!
Todd Carty's unexpected exit
Todd Carty gave Dancing on Ice one of it’s most hilarious moments when during a routine he skated off down the tunnel by accident leaving his partner to finish the routine alone.
Jennifer Ellison's injury
One of the most horrific accidents of the show’s history. The actress slit her head open during a scorpion kick causing a horrendous gash, however, Ellison carried on through and scored her highest score of the series.
Gemma Collins - The Diva
The ‘GC’, as she is now known, made her mark on Dancing on Ice when she provided more drama than dancing skills! The reality star took a nasty tumble whilst skating to a Celine Dion classic.
Jorgie Porter cutting Matt Evers
Back in 2014, Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter cut open Matt Evers’ face during their dress rehearsal. The actress slit his face during a simple lift causing him to rush off the ice to get stitched up.
Simon Cowell’s right-hand woman wasn’t great on the ice. During a simple frog lift, she ripped her partner’s trousers, luckily it was as the side and not the front!
David Seaman's multiple drops
Most Dancing on Ice stars stick to one partner but David Seaman needed two after dropping his first partner Pam O’Connor’ whilst practising the headbanger. He then dropped his second partner Frankie Poultney during their live performance. He might have had safe hands as a goalkeeper but he seemingly couldn’t keep hold of a partner on the ice.
Labour MP Oona King was responsible for one of Series Eight’s most memorable moments. When doing a simple skate onto the ice, Oona King tripped her partner, causing him to dislocate his shoulder. After the altercation, King was the third contestant to leave the show.
Fight Fight Fight
Jason Gardiner has been known for speaking his mind about the contestants but shocked the nation when he attacked Karen Barber. Gardiner told the ex-judge that her opinion no longer mattered, making her voice insignificant to the show. An incredible moment in the show’s history.
Perfect 30: Hayley Tamaddon
Hayley Tamaddon was the unstoppable winner of Series 5 and scored the first perfect 30, with a jaw-dropping routine to the Pussy Cat Dolls – Jai Ho.
Ray Quinn's Bolero
The English singer, dancer and actor performed numerous incredible routines on the ice. A memorable moment for the show was when the series four winner, Ray Quinn, scored perfect 30’s for his final two performances. A perfect Bolero, ready to be crowned the winner.
Tim protects Denise
Jason Gardiner has had his fair number of fights during the seasons, however, nobody has stood up to the harsh critic like Tim Healy in 2011. After Denise Walsh got some incredibly harsh feedback from the judge, Healy took to the platform to defend his partner’s honour, putting the judge back into his place.
