SKATING legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean WILL carry out together on Dancing on Ice this series.
Despite fears social distancing rules would prevent the duo touching, it’s been revealed they privately pre-recording dances in a bubble prior to Christmas.
Christopher, 62, said: “For us, it’s so surreal that I can’t touch Jayne and dance with her or skate with her.
” However we have pre-recorded 2 or 3 numbers that will be going into the program.”
Jayne, 63, added: “When we did our pre-records prior to Christmas we went to our different homes to spend Christmas so I haven’t in fact met up with Chris face to face.
” That will be unusual on Sunday realising that I can’t give him a hug, I’ll have to keep remembering.”
