It was announced today that next Sunday's final of Dancing On Ice will be the first live programme to be broadcast in 3D.
Now fans of the show will be able to experience the thrills and excitement of watching ex Hollyoaks stars and Daniella Westbrook's comedy nose stumbling around an ice rink as if they were performing in their own living rooms.
The decision coincides with the increasing popularity of 3D films and the availability of 3D TVs. However, don't worry if you have not yet purchased a new TV as you will still be able to watch the performance with those old fashioned red and blue plastic 3D specs which will be given away free when you buy a copy of this week's Heat magazine.
They hope the 3D extravaganza will bring in a record audience for a Sunday evening TV show. They promise a series of stunts that will utilise the technology to its maximum potential.
These include -
- Giving Philip Schofield a long pointy microphone that he will point towards the camera at regular intervals whilst laughing hysterically.
- Making Jason Gardiner wear a tie that blows bubbles towards the camera every time he gets booed by the audience.
- Gratuitous close up shots of Emma Bunton's ample bosom.
- Gratuitous close up shots of Holly Willoughbys ample bosom and her ever expanding arse.
- Gratuitous close up shots of Jane Torville's cameltoe.
As a follow up this experiment, plans are afoot to broadcast more poular shows in 3D. These include the new series of Britain's Got Talent, GMTV and Ant and Dec's brand new show called Ant and Dec's Brand New Show In 3D.
