A special one-off Dancing On Ice competition will air this July to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics, it has been revealed.

Broadcast report that ITV are currently finalising plans, with a provisional air date set for July 27 before the Opening Ceremony.

The one-off special will follow the format of the mains how, but will see famous Olympic athletes compete instead.

Contestants are set to include hurdles champ Colin Jackson, who also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2005, and gymnast Olga Korbut.

It was recently reported that Dancing On Ice judges Katarina Witt and Robin Cousins, both Olympic gold medallists themselves, would also be skating on the show.

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will also be back in charge, training the competing athletes as well as skating themselves.
