Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean behind the scenes at Strictly for Children in Need

From dance rehearsals to the performance, how will the legendary skating duo get on with their Strictly Come Dancing pro partners... and what will the judges have to say?


Olympic ice skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean have been busy with Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers James Jordan and Aliona Vilani getting ready for their Children in Need performance tomorrow. 


The skaters have ditched their blades for a turn on the shiny dance floor – but which pair will lift the Pudsey glitter ball trophy? You’ll have to wait until tomorrow night’s show to see the result – but here’s a sneak peek at the action…
