Brianne hails from across the Pond, so write dates the other way around, ie she means 4th September not 9th April.
My interpretation of the posts is that Covid put paid to their planned wedding, so they wore the gear and drank the Champagne anyway. Fair play!
As to why ITV hired a pairs skater as a pro on an "ice dance" programme, "Dancing on Ice" is definitely not a pure ice dance competition. There's a lot more pair/adagio pair skating in it than actual ice dance. I find it annoyingly loud and down-market and the risks the pros take - especially the female pros - with their inexperienced partners, sets more than my teeth on edge, but it does more to promote the sport than the national association so...
Personally, I have never felt the inclination to watch it. I know some people like to see people making eejits of themselves (especially "famous" people), but I am not like that. I prefer to see people who know what they are doing doing it properly.
On a different note, for those of us that can receive the Irish channels, "I, Tonya" will be shown on Wednesday night.
Wednesday 27[SUP]th[/SUP] August 2020
RTÉ1 21:35 – 23:45 BST "I, Tonya"
This is what I like about RTÉ. They somehow always manage to get films onto terrestrial TV a lot sooner than the British public service broadcasters (the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5) can.
