It has been confirmed that Jeff Brazier will perform at the Metro Radio Arena when Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice Tour reaches the North East on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th April 2011.

Jeff said: "I'm thrilled to be a part of the tour! I've loved learning to skate and perform. I'm still aiming to finish in the top three though as I can think of nothing more exciting than to show what I've learnt in front of huge audiences in every city on the tour."
Skating legends Torvill & Dean will, as always, join the tour stunning audiences with their impressive ice performances. Other contestants confirmed for the tour are EastEnders actor Sam Attwater, TV presenter Chloe Madeley, Chris Moyles' sidekick Comedy Dave Vitty, children's TV presenter Laura Hamilton, Coronation Street and Loose Women's Denise Welch and Victoria Cross winner Johnson Beharry who have all appeared on this year's TV show. The tour will also see the welcome return of Dancing on Ice 2010 winner, actress Hayley Tamaddon.
Over a million people across the country have seen the tour in previous years and it is now in its fifth year, featuring more celebrity skaters from the current ITV1 series than ever before.
TV personality and one time 'King of the Jungle' Christopher Biggins who debuted as a judge on 2010 tour, returns to the panel alongside skating gold medallist and TV judge Robin Cousins and head skating coach from the ITV series, Karen Barber. Popular TV presenter Andi Peters also returns to host the tour.
All of the celebrities will be trained and choreographed by Torvill & Dean, who will also perform routines choreographed exclusively for the live tour.
At each performance the audience can vote for their favourite celebrity skater. Using the same format as the hit ITV1 show, spectators can use their mobile phones to text vote for their favourite celebrity. Audience votes will then be added to scores from the Judges to decide the overall celebrity winner. The winning couple then take to the ice for a magical finale performance. As with previous tours, all profits from text voting will go to charity. More than £100,000 has been raised to date and has been donated to the Royal London Society For The Blind and Demelza Hospice Care for Children.
*Please note Vanilla Ice will not be performing at the Newcastle shows.
