Brexit on Ice unveiled as flagship of BBC Christmas TV line-up

THE BBC has unveiled the jewel in the crown of its Christmas schedule – Brexit on Ice.
The all-skating, all-singing, all-dancing spectacular will be based on Britain’s ongoing negotiations to leave the European Union.
In a major coup, the BBC has signed former World Champions and Olympic gold medallists Torvill and Dean to portray Theresa May and Boris Johnson.
It is thought that early pilot productions with the former Foreign Secretary playing himself ran into technical issues in the rink.
There will be contributions from the Royal Ballet on Ice and plus family favourites the Chuckle Brothers and the Krankies.
To heighten the tension, and underline the delicacy of the Brexit talks, the BBC director-general has personally signed off the use of specially commissioned thin ice for the performance.
The plans hit a controversial note when an ITV spokesman said: “This is a rip-off of our Dancing on Ice concept.”
Former Brexit Secretary David Davis hit back by saying: “Nonsense. Dancing on Ice is well thought out, professionally executed and a cast-iron success. How anyone can say our Brexit negotiations are an imitation of that is a mystery.”
