Dancing On Ice reportedly lost over 1 million viewers during their grand finale on Sunday evening as the ‘cursed’ show’s ratings reached a new low.

Sonny Jay and Angela Egan were crowned the winners of Dancing On Ice 2021. 

The Capital FM star couldn’t hide his shock at being crowned series champion after beating out Faye Brookes and Colin Jackson in Sunday’s live final. 

Sonny struggled to find words to share his excitement after he was announced as the winner, joining Angela to lift the trophy following one of the most turbulent series in the show’s history.

Speaking after the result was announced, he said: ‘That is mental. Thank you so much.’

He later added: ‘I can’t believe it… this is mental! I wanted to come out of this competition being able to skate with a beer in my hand – now I can do that and I’ve won the whole thing! I feel like I’ve completed life.’ 

Finishing as runner-up, Faye graciously said she only dreamed of reaching the final after her professional partner Hamish Gaman was forced to pull out mid-series, with his stand-in Matt Evers screaming ‘I love my job!’

She said: ‘All I wanted to do was get here. I did it as a personal challenge, I’ve made it here, and [the trophy] couldn’t have gone to a better guy.’ 

Sonny had stunned the judges all series with his vast improvement and finished in second place on the leaderboard behind Colin. 

For their first skate of the night, Sonny and Angela opted for a medley of songs from George Formby featuring a cameo from the DJ’s beloved ukulele, and came close to a full house with 39.5 points. 

John said: ‘You were skating like a pro out there. This pair I love watching, throughout the entire skate it was characterisation, and you bought your own person to it, so it was a definite sunny delight and a 10.’

The pair then opted to reprise their Popeye-themed skate from Couples Week, which landed them their first 40 of the night.

Christopher praised: ‘It’s your character you put it into it, it was so much fun you made it look easy, but from our point of view we can see how easy you made those steps are.’  

Jayne added: ‘You don’t miss a beat when you’re skating to it, and you’ve got this incredible personality as well.’   

Wow! Sonny Jay and Angela Egan were crowned the winners of Dancing On Ice 2021
