How old is Christopher Dean and what's his net worth?
Christopher Dean, 62, was born in Nottinghamshire.
Despite his impressive skating achievements, Chris admitted his body isn’t quite as limber as it was during the Olympic golden years.
Chris told The Mirror: "The knees don’t bend quite as deeply as they used to. I think I have arthritis in my knees. I just manage it.
“I can still skate, paracetamol helps. I’m pretty reckless – I’ll deal with it later."
His net worth is estimated at £5million, while Jane Torvill's is estimated at £6million.
Is Christopher Dean married?
People often think Torvill and Dean are a couple but the duo insists they only briefly snogged as teenagers and never got together.
Jayne has been married to husband Phil Christensen for the past 25 years while Christopher lives in Colorado Springs, America with his partner and Dancing On Ice head coach Karen Barber.
Christopher was previously married to the French Canadian skater Isabelle Duchesnay from 1991 to 1993.
From 1994 to 2010 he was married to American skater Jill Trenary with whom he has two sons – Jack Robert and Sam Colin.
