Phillip Schofield will put on his skates and take to the ice on 'Dancing on Ice' for the first time since he began hosting the show nine years ago
Phillip Schofield will skate for the first time on 'Dancing on Ice' on Sunday (09.03.14).
The 51-year-old presenter will take to the ice for the first time since he began hosting the show nine years ago in a bid to give the show - which will end after the current series - an exciting send-off.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Fans have wanted Phillip to get his skates on for the past nine years but he has always refused because doesn't really fancy slipping over and breaking something.
"But after months of arm-twisting by producers, Phillip has finally agreed to give it a whirl. It should be hilarious TV. With Torvill and Dean doing their last ever performance of the Bolero too, it could be one of the show's most memorable episodes."
Phillip will be joined on the ice by his co-host Christine Bleakley and the panel of judges, including Ashley Roberts and Jason Gardiner, as they've all been taking part in secret training sessions.
Meanwhile, Olympic gold medal winner Beth Tweddle, former 'Emmerdale' actress Hayley Tamaddon and singer Ray Quinn will battle it out to be crowned champion of the all-stars series.
