The Late Late Show Celebs on Ice Special
Late Late presenter Pat Kenny last night revealed the four game celebrities who will take to the ice next Friday, December 14th, live on RTÉ One, as part of The Late Late Show/ 7Up Christmas on Ice “Celebs on Ice Special”.
RTÉ’s Kathryn Thomas will present The Late Late Show / 7Up Christmas on Ice Celebs on Ice Special live from the RDS on Friday December 14th, linking to Pat in studio, where RTÉ Sport’s George Hook will be on-hand for some expert commentary.
Pat Kenny has revealed that the four Irish celebrities have already been in training for a week, having taken to the ice last Monday December 3rd under the tutelage of Canadian trainer Lorelei Murphy as well as ex-British Champion Skater Nicky Slater, who is in Ireland to act as mentor to the four. The four celebs will now train for a further week before performing live from the RDS on Friday 14th of December.
Says Pat Kenny: “It’s all in aid of charity but that doesn’t lessen the stakes for our novice skaters. I’ll be linking live to Kathryn in the RDS next Friday as the nation dissects each performance from our fab four. Nicky Slater will be in studio with me assessing each performance but ultimately it will be the viewers at home who will decide.”
There will be four live ice dances on The Late Late Show of Friday 14th. Once the last celebrity performs it will be up to the public to decide who will win the challenge. The winner will be announced in studio at the end of The Late Late Show.
Ireland’s largest ice spectacular 7UP Christmas on Ice, which takes place this year in both the RDS in Dublin 4 and Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, will run through to 13th January 2008. With almost 220,000 visitors of all ages in total last year, 7Up’s festive ice skating offering is growing in popularity, reflecting a very positive trend towards active family outings and fun sports.
