    Ellie O'Connell & Joshua Tarry

    Ice dancers Ellie O'Connell and Joshua Tarry represent Great Britain at the advanced novice level. They are (I believe) 13 and 14, but as they don't have an ISU bio page yet, it's a bit hard to find data yet for them. They were recently featured in a BBC documentary called Ice Stars and are the current GB silver basic novice medalists with a total score of 39.64. Personal best from what I can find is 52.73 (advanced novice) at IJS Sheffield from August 2015. Since we've all been discussing them in the Ice Stars thread in the Share It section, I thought they deserved their own fan fest. (As a side note, this is my first fan fest, so if there's something I'm doing wrong or something I can add, please do let me know!)

    Here's their Stats on Ice page:

    And their Team Jellie Facebook page (with lots of videos and adorable pictures of them):

    **Only one pattern dance competed at this event; hence the lower score.

    Can't believe I haven't posted in this thread yet!

    Firstly, thank you to Princessroja for starting this thread. They are really fortunate to have a supporter as dedicated as you.

    And thank you to tiffoc for, well, giving us Ellie! (For those that don’t realise, tiffoc is Ellie’s Mum ).

    Anyway, I just wanted to add links for a few videos and articles that I have came across.

    Please be warned – because Josh and Ellie are still so young, I have only included material starting from the 2014–15 season.

    Hope you like them

    Two weekends to go until their advanced novice debut at the NRW Trophy 2015!

    ETA: Thanks, CaroLiza_fan for the wealth of information! I guess I'd better get my butt in gear figuring out how running a fan fest works since there's season results coming soon and I'm not sure if I should add all that great info to the original post!

    You know, I was actually wondering about that a couple of days ago--I will happily take it out!

    ETA: OP all cleaned up and ready to go for the first result of the season--we are rooting for them!

    After their pattern dances, Josh and Ellie are in 9th place at NRW today. Apparently they nearly had to withdraw since Ellie wasn't feeling well at all, but thankfully they were able to compete after all!

    Here's one of their pattern dance videos!

    And here's the other!

    They're in Dortmund, Germany, I believe, at the NRW Trophy.

    I meant their standing relative to the other competitors but I see I should have probably said it more clearly
