The duo also insisted that it was still an open race for the Dancing on Ice 2012 crown, despite bookmakers having Jorgie Porter and Matthew Wolfenden as strong favourites.
"I think whoever is there in the last three can win it," said Dean.
Commenting on the final nine contestants, Dean continued: "They are bruised and hurting - just the way that they should be.
"I think the frog lift might be coming back from Sam [Nixon] - he hurt his knee from it so we took it out last week but he has come back and said, 'I want to do this', so it's back in this week, fingers crossed."
Dean described Corrie's Andy Whyment as "the most improved" skater, while Torvill said that she had been most surprised by X Factor's Chico.
"He just keeps getting better and better and he's doing some big lifts this week," she said.
The Olympic skating pair also promised that Jorgie Porter would be tested even further after completing the dangerous headbanger skating move last weekend.
"The next level [of her doing the head banger] is for her to do it from the skate and land back on the skates," said Dean.
Dancing on Ice continues this Sunday (February 26) on ITV1.
