Robin Cousins, Louie Spence and Katarina Witt are facing the axe from 'Dancing On Ice' because bosses are concerned the last series was too "boring"
All the 'Dancing On Ice' judges are facing the axe.
Robin Cousins, Katarina Witt and Louie Spence may not be invited back to the ITV show because bosses fear the last series - which saw Matthew Wolfenden crowned winner - was too dull and consequently think it may require a big shake-up.
A source told The Sun: "'Dancing On Ice' was so boring this year - and it didn't escape the notice of the top brass.
"They were stunned that no one was talking about it. It also got hammered in the ratings by the BBC which put up 'Call The Midwife' against us. Now we're going back to the drawing board in a bid to inject some life into the show. We're looking at everything - the judges, the stars on the show, everything is up for discussion."
The insider added the show - which is hosted by Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley - may also be moved from its current slot on a Sunday evening to a more prime-time one on a Saturday.
It is not the first time the judges on the programme have undergone a review; Emma Bunton and Jason Gardiner have both previously served on the panel.
