Dancing on Ice Season 14 Story
Every week or every episode a celebrity and their partners perform an ice dan routine live. Four to five judges, known as the Ice Panel, judge every performance and give them marks between 0.0 to 1.0 depending on how the performance was. These scores total to create a leader board which combines with the public vote to decide the couples ranked in the last to places. This is to ensure that even if a pair is ranked in last or second last they still have a chance with the public votes.

Once again the scores and votes are taken into account and combined and the bottom three couples of the week compete in a final showdown which is known as Skate Off. Unlike in the case of main routines, a routine can be reused if the couples are in the Skate-Off more than once. Once the Skate-Off is over the Judges will evaluate them and cast a vote on who gets to stay. The couple with the fewest votes leaves the show while the couple with the most votes receives a place in the upcoming week’s show. However, changes were made in the seventh series and two couples were asked to leave in one week due to issues in numbering. This happened again once on both the tenth and eleventh series.
One week after the finale of each season on Dancing on Ice, a love reunion is held where every celebrity talk about their memories and experience during the entire run of the season and answer question asked by the live studio audience. Dean and Torvill came, in the end, themselves to make a special In-studio appearance, they thanked the contestants, judges, host, and also the viewers for their love, support, and votes.
From the start of the first season to the eighth season there were certain elements that the contestants were required to perform in their routine. However, due to the All-Star nature that the series took on from the ninth season, this format was removed.
