Jayne Torvill & Christopher Dean dazzle with performance of Olympic Bolero

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean opened the Dancing on Ice grand final tonight with an adaptation of the routine which won them gold at the 1984 Winter Olympics.

A group of marching band drummers opened the performance before breaking apart in a circle where Torvill and Dean were cleverly nestled inside.

The pair – dressed in navy blue sequined outfits – then broke into a prefect revival of the routine which got them an almost perfect score at the 1984 Games.

The audience were in for a treat though when the skating duo added a few adjustments to the routine which upped the ante on tonight’s show, as they grabbed silks which fell from the ceiling, suspending them into the air as they ‘flew’ across the rink.

Jayne and Chris also broke into the most nail-biting stunt performed on the show, the famous head-banger.

Performing with elegance and ease, the ice couple proved why their careers have endured so many years.

They opened a super tense show which will see one of the three finalists – Matt Lapinskas, Beth Tweddle and Luke Campbell will be crowned the winner, after 10 weeks of live shows.
