An Idea For DOI

In yesterday's news, it was reported that ITV are trying to work out a way to bring Dancing On Ice back to our screens once next year's series is complete. I have just the idea how.

The reason why the show is to be canned in 2014 is because Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean have both announced that they are leaving their role on the show. The pair were trainers to the celebrity ice skaters and the television company thought it was best to cancel the show with the duo deciding to call it a day.

Now, before I start, I want to make it absolutely clear. I have never, ever liked this show. In total, I've only watched about ten minutes of it.

If that.

Still, I am going to offer an idea that is so far out there that it could be what will make it interesting for one season.

The first thing they should do is place the celebs - and their dance partners - in teams. Think UFC's Ultimate Fighter programme because that's the only show I can think of that has celebrities in teams going against each other on a week-to-week basis.

Still thinking of Ultimate Fighter? I hope you are because you're now going to say 'yeah, but Ultimate Fighter had a person who managed each team'.

And this is where things gets interesting.

Bring in Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding.

If you recall, these two absolutely hated each other in the 1990s. The Winter Olympics of 1994 centred around their rivalry due to the fact that Harding had sent a masked assailant (her boyfriend) to attack Kerrigan to ensure she didn't make it to the Olympics that year. It didn't work, she got there and did better than her rival.

It was quite the story and it made figure skating a hell of a lot more interesting that year.

If Dancing On Ice isn't going to have Torvill & Dean, Kerrigan & Harding against each other is the second best option to keep people interested for one extra year.

After that, it's back to the drawing board.
