Sharing clips from the celebrations after the show, Regan is seen walking between dressing rooms, before an after party hosted by Phillip Schofield who calls him the ‘perfect perfect talent’. Bianca, Regan and Sheryl are then seen partying into the early hours, with the last post around midnight.
Regan, the son of former England footballer Paul, struggled to hold back his tears as he lifted the trophy, adding: “I am so overwhelmed, I never thought it was possible”. It was an emotional ending for all, with runner-up, Cole, 45, calling the evening a “really special moment” in his life.
Regan and Manta performed a Bolero routine for their final skate, which was inspired by judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean’s 1984 Winter Olympics skating performance. Following his final performance, Gascoigne said: “It’s hard to keep it together, it was very special, adding “I genuinely did not think I would get the chance to do it.”
Gascoigne, Cole and Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, who placed third in the competition, all received perfect scores for both their final performances on Sunday.
Presenter Holly Willoughby, who returned for Sunday’s final episode after missing the semi-finals due to Covid-19, said: “It is extraordinary, it is like there are no other buttons. You have across the board.”
Phillip Schofield, who had to present the semi-finals on his own during Willoughby’s absence, added: “This series has given us some of the best skating we have ever seen on this rink.”
The final also saw Torvill and Dean perform together, plus previously eliminated contestants including Love Island’s Liberty Poole, Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor and Happy Mondays star Bez took to the ice for a final time for a group routine.
