Tonight the Dancing On Ice Allstars Final came to a close with tears from almost everyone and all the skating couples who took part returning. The winner was Ray Quinn and his dance partner Maria and it was a well-deserved win! The skating pair are the last-ever champions of Dancing on Ice.
Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle and her skating partner Lukasz were eliminated in third place leaving Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon and her skating partner Dan to fight it out with Ray and Maria for the ‘Champion of Champions’ title.
The winning pair were the early bookmakers’ favourites to win and received the most votes from viewers after getting a maximum of 40 points for both their routines on the night.
After winning, Quinn said:
“I’m absolutely privileged, but this moment is for Maria. I’m proper buzzing, I’m over the moon. Drinks are on me.”
Runner-up Tamaddon said,
“Ray is an absolute star. He is amazing at everything and he really deserves it.”
Christopher Dean said Quinn’s performances was “incredible,” and added:
“He’s a worthy winner and the best skater we’ve had.”
Earlier Jason Gardiner said Quinn was a “master” and told him:
“I sit here in absolute awe of what you can do.”
Hard luck Beth and Lukasz and Hayley and Dan! You all did really well! But well done Ray and Maria! I am so happy you both won! So well-deserved! Delighted! 🙂
