The former X Factor contestant was named the 'champion of champions' in the final ever series of the show last month.

He will now head on the road to perform a farewell show alongside former ice champions, including Hayley Tamaddon, Beth Tweddle, Suzanne Shaw and Olympic legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

Quinn said: "It's going to be a sad tour but I think the show itself is spectacular and the audience are in for a right treat for sure.

"To be part of the last ever final one is a huge honour and we owe it to the audience really and all the support they've given us. It's going to be a great show, we're really exciting."

Torvill and Dean have hailed the tour a celebration of the show which ran for nine series on UTV.

During this year's Dancing On Ice final the skating pair performed their famous Bolero for the final time on television.

The iconic dance won them the gold medal at the 1984 Olympics.

Torvill said: "It does fell like a big celebration to be able to do the final tour, and we're excited to get started."

Dean added: "Very much so. We've enjoyed all of the tours but this tour is very special because it's the last Dancing On Ice tour.

"It's going to be the most spectacular yet, but because it's the last tour, there's most probably something in purple going to happen."

He also revealed they had several projects in the pipeline and added: "We're not going off into the sunset just yet, ice is going to be with us forever. (We'll be) on ice forever."
