The Dancing On Ice live tour has been dropped for 2019, it's been revealed.

The live arena show that accompanies the TV series will be rested for next year.

Christopher Dean has said it wasn't the "right time" but suggested the tour may return in future.

"There won’t be a tour next year," he told The Sun newspaper. “We feel it’s not the right time. We may have another tour next time, but not this series.”

The latest live Dancing On Ice show saw X Factor star and 2018 Dancing On Ice winner Jake Quickenden, Bucks Fizz legend Cheryl Baker, media personality Donna Air and rugby ace Max Evans get their skates back on.

Love Island's Kem Cetinay, weather host Alex Beresford and two-time Dancing on Ice champion Ray Quinn joined the celebrity line-up for the live ice spectacular.

The comeback tour - which took place back in the Spring - also featured a special guest judge; TV and West End star Denise Van Outen, who joined the ice panel with Chris & Jayne.

Meanwhile, the new line up of Dancing On Ice contestants for next year's show have been confirmed.

Grease legend Didi Conn, most famous for her role as Frenchie in the hit musical movie, and Love Island star Wes Nelson completed the cast.

They join reality star Gemma Collins, actor Richard Blackwood, dancer James Jordan, Westlife singer Brian McFadden, TV personality Saira Khan, cricketer Ryan Sidebottom, Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, Aussie actor Mark Little, soap star Jane Danson and X Factor's Saara Aalto.

They'll be getting their skates and sequins on ready to compete against one another in the quest for glory.

Dancing On Ice returns on Sunday, January 6 on ITV.
