"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 Networkon Tuesday July 11, 2006at 19:30. The show involved celebrities dancing on a specially set up ice rinklocated in Sydney's north west. The show was won by Jake Wall.

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 Torvilland Christopher Deanthemselves. 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 Networkover 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
tendonin 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 [http://dancingonice.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=115035] .
The show was hosted by celebrity gardener and backyard designer
Jamie Durieand former "Today" weather presenter Sami Lukis. It was based on the British ITVshow " 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.
