  • Date of Birth 07/10/1957
  • Born Nottingham


One half of the infamous Torvill and Dean partnership, Nottingham-born Jayne Torvill was responsible for one of the greatest moments in Team GB’s Olympic history.

Having finished fifth on their Olympic debut at the Lake Placid Games in 1980, Jayne and Christopher’s famous dance routine to the 'Bolero' won them gold four years later at Sarajevo 1984.

They came away with another medal (bronze) from the Lillehammer Games, and away from the Olympics also won four consecutive gold medals at the World Championships – including scoring a perfect 6.0 from all nine judges in Helsinki in 1983.
