ITV announced that the Dancing on Ice 2013 tour has been cancelled. Fans are furious and the celebrities aren’t happy about it either.

Fans of Dancing On Ice were disappointed when they tried to book tickets to this year’s live tour only to find that it had been cancelled!
The show has of course featured a live tour – after each series ended on TV – for the last seven years, and has been a “money spinner” for not only the celebrity contestants, but also the show’s pro-skating stars.
And it seems that nobody’s happy behind the scenes that they won’t get the chance to boost their pay for this year’s series once it ends. And of course, fans aren’t best pleased either…
The Sun reports, “In the past seven years, Dancing On Ice stars including Corrie’s Chris Fountain, Hollyoaks beauty Jorgie Porter and ex-EastEnder Sam Attwater have raked in thousands each from performing their routines up-and-down the country throughout April and May.”
A show source said, “This is a real blow to the celebrities.
