The judges help decide the winner

This year has highlighted just how challenging a talent show like this is for the celebrities taking part. With many of the stars having to pull out due to injury, COVID or personal issues, it’s certainly been a bumpy ride to get here but the three celebrities still standing will enter the rink tonight for the grand final. The trio will perform again for your votes, then the final two will skate Torvill and Dean’s iconic 1984 Olympic-winning Bolero routine, before the winner is revealed. This show has put the light back into light entertainment when we’ve needed it most.
