What is the Golden Ticket on Dancing on Ice and how does it work?
Dancing On Ice will debut a Golden Ticket twist for 2021 that gives judges power to save a celebrity from the public vote.
The judges will be given the chance to give one star skater the chance to get immunity.
During the first episode, half the skaters will perform, followed the weekend after by the rest of the line-up.
The judges will then decide which of the couples they think deserves to be saved from the first public vote.

Will the Golden Ticket be in every episode?
The Golden Ticket will only happen in the first two episodes.
Christopher Dean told the press: “There is a golden ticket situation for the first two episodes.”
“The judges are going to give one celebrity the opportunity to be out of the public vote based on their performance that night.
“So there is everything to skate for to not be in that public vote for the fist week.”
Torvill and Dean won gold at the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympic Games, becoming the first ever non-Russian skaters to win the Ice Dance.
Coronavirus rules mean the pair can’t perform weekly for viewers.
But they secretly recorded performances before Christmas
When is Dancing on Ice on TV?
The pair have presented the show since the series was revived back in 2018, but they were also the hosts of the original version from 2006 to 2011.
Dancing On Ice returns on Sunday, January 17, 2021 at 6pm on ITV.
