Sunday, March 27, 2011

AYLESFORD, England, March 28, 2011 - has reported that while the overall viewing figures for the
2011 series of Dancing on Ice may not have reached the heights of the show's
first airing in 2006, the coach holidays and short breaks website latest
revenue figures show an unprecedented year-on-year increase of over 1000% in
packages for the live tour.

The 5th live tour, hosted by Andi Peters and featuring skating legends
Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, is showing at 7 major venues across the UK
over 28 dates. Celebrity skaters lining up to appear include Radio 1's
'Comedy Dave', Vanilla Ice and 2010 winner Hayley Tammadon, as well as
Sunday's finalists Laura Hamilton, Chloe Madeley and newly-crowned 2011
winner, Sam Attwater.

The incredible increase in breaks is thought to be down to the growing
popularity of the TV series, heightened media attention surrounding catty
judge Jason Gardiner, as well as the continued following of loyal Torvill and
Dean fans looking to relive the moment the pair skated their way to gold at
the 1984 Winter Olympics with Bolero.

Rachel Jones,'s Online PR & Marketing co-ordinator,
commented: "It's unusual to see an increase like this for a particular event,
but we believe that the emergence of other dance shows like So You Think You
Can Dance, Comic Relief's Let's Dance and Strictly Come Dancing have made
dance-related breaks overall incredibly popular."

The coach holidays consolidator also believes that the success of this
year's live Dancing On Ice tours ( could be due to the
profiles of this year's celebs, like lovable Essex lad Jeff Brazier and Loose
Women's Denise Welch.
