Jake crowned Dancing on Ice champion

He was crowned the champion of Dancing On Ice 2018 in an intense final showdown against Brooke Vincent and Max Evans.

The X Factor star beat out fierce competition over the past few weeks with partner Vanessa Bauer to make their way to the top spot, and finally, thanks to a purely audience vote, they were declared the winner.

Speaking about the win, the champion declared: "I might not have to do any more reality shows now!"

For the finale, X Factor star Jake, Coronation Street's Brooke and sportsman Max were tasked with learning three difficult routines - one choreographed by Torvill and Dean and a repeat of their favourite routine.

Finally, after one elimination, the top two couples performed their take on the classic Bolero.

Max Evans was the performer to fall at the final hurdle, with partner Ale Izquierdo reduced to tears as it was revealed they hadn't made it to the top two.

Jake and Vanessa broke down in tears as they were crowned this year's champions after repeatedly pulling out all the stops and repeatedly topping the leaderboard week after week.

The couple were also the only couple to attempt and complete the dangerous headbanger during their routines.

Brooke, who placed second in the show, joked to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "Are you sure it's not a fix?"

However she then praised the efforts of her competitors and their efforts to take home the trophy.
