"Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice" was an Australian television show based on the original British version Dancing on Ice. It premiered on the Nine Network on Tuesday July 11, 2006 at 19:30. The show involved celebrities dancing on a specially set up ice rink located in Sydney's north west. The show was won by Jake Wall. The show reportedly cost several million dollars to produce, but only regularly managed above-average ratings at best. [] []

The couples were put up against each other to compete for the prize at the end of the series. The ten celebrities have been teamed up with ten professional ice skaters and have received special training from champion ice-skating duo Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean themselves. The public got to vote for their favourite couples and the couple with the least votes were voted off the show each week until a winner has been decided. The show was run in a similar format to the Seven Network's rival dancing show "Dancing with the Stars" which has been a major hit for the Seven Network over the past three years.

During training almost every contestant has suffered an injury of some sort, the most serious of which being Michael Slater severing a tendon in his hand after it was accidentally skated over by his partner. Giaan Rooney also dislocated her ankle just before the second episode of the series, and was forced to withdraw from the competition [] .

The show was hosted by celebrity gardener and backyard designer Jamie Durie and former "Today" weather presenter Sami Lukis. It was based on the British ITV show "Dancing on Ice", which also featured Torvill and Dean, and is also roughly similar to an earlier Nine program Skating on Thin Ice, also hosted by Jamie Durie. Kristina, Pam, Pavel and Matt were also skating partners for the celebrities in the original UK version.
