ITV’s head of entertainment marketing, Jess Byars commented: "To celebrate the return of the biggest and best show on ice, we wanted a bold campaign that would give it the stature it deserves, and a story that reflects the warmth, charm and distinctiveness of the show itself."
ECD, Tony Pipes added: “We wanted this film to be full of warmth, Christmas fuzz and most of all magic and with Kirk and the team at Goodbye Kansas, we found our magicians”.
Dancing on Ice returns to TV screens in early 2018. The promo will run on ITV and in cinemas through to 19 December.
