Are these young ice skaters the new Torvill and Dean?
A SIX-year-old ice skater is hoping to one day emulate gold medallists Torvill and Dean by competing at the Winter Olympics.
Tyla Redhead, of Barrow, has idolised the legendary skaters since he first stepped on the ice aged three.
Now his coach is tipping him for Winter Olympics glory if he keeps training hard, and his sister Tiana-Mai, 5, is also skating for success.
Tyla, a pupil at Goxhill Primary School, travels with his family to Hull Arena for practice three times a week.

Coach Vikki Wilson, one of the region's top ice skaters, said he was years ahead of where he should be at his age.
"He definitely has the potential to be a national star," she said.
"He works so hard – he doesn't stop."
He has already passed his National Ice Skating Association gold level qualifications and will soon be taking part in competitions.
Tyla said: "I want to be on Dancing On Ice one day and I think I am good enough to do it. I like Torvill and Dean the most and ice skating is my favourite sport.
"I also want to be in the Winter Olympics, because it would be a special achievement."
Mum Donna, 37, said: "As long as he is having fun, I want him to keep doing it."
After Tyla took up the sport, his younger sister Tiana-Mai chose to follow in his footsteps.
